Music For Your Monday: Lisa Mitchell

22 Nov

Lisa Mitchell finished sixth on the 2006 season of Australian Idol. What is it with Idol runners-up outshining the winners? (Hello, Jennifer Hudson!)

Though it’s not surprising that Mitchell didn’t win–she’s more coffeehouse artist than pop star. A pretty girl with a pretty voice, Mitchell’s album Wonder went platinum in Australia. She has since toured in Australia and the UK.

Born in England, Lisa Mitchell moved to Australia at age three. She credits a wide variety of artists as early musical influences, including Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bright Eyes, and The Killers. Listening to Mitchell’s music, it’s hard to believe she’s only 20 years old.

Check out Mitchell’s neat videos for Incomplete Lullaby and Coin Laundry.

Happy Monday!
