Anais Mitchell

Heavily influenced by the confessional alternative folk stylings of Ani DiFranco, Anaïs Mitchell began writing songs when she was 17. Born in Vermont, she attended Middlebury College and traveled throughout the Middle East, Latin America, and Europe studying global politics before alighting in Austin, TX, in the early 2000s. She released her first album, The Song They Sang When Rome Fell, in 2002. Mitchell performed at the Kerrville Folk Festival the following year, where she was awarded with the New Folk award. Her second album, Hymns for the Exiled, came out on Waterbug Records in 2004, and a copy eventually made its way to DiFranco herself. The folk icon attended a few of Mitchell's performances and offered her a deal at Righteous Babe Records soon after. The Brightness, Mitchell's debut on that label, arrived in February 2007. In 2006, Mitchell debuted her "folk opera" Hadestown in collaboration with arranger Michael Chorney and director Ben T. Matchstick based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice and set in a futurist poverty-striken America. A second draft was performed by the a group called the Hadestown Company in 2007. An album entitled Hadestown with appearances from Greg Brown, DiFranco and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon was released on Righteous Babe in March of 2010. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi

Anais adds life to the Child ballads collected by my grandmother, Helen Hartness Flanders, breathing new energy into the oral tradition!
she's touring in 2014 with Patty Griffin. great show
Cmon i want hadestown for pandora!
I looove Anais Mitchell. I first heard her open for Ani DiFranco at the Scottish Rite Center in Collingwood NJ. I had no clue who she was. All it took was one song and I fell in love. She played mostlty off her Hadestown album which is also amazing. So glad I went to the concert to see the wonderful Ani DiFranco or I never would have found out about Anais. ♥
I go to mount Abe in Bristol. In my biology class last year, I looked up at one of the painted ceiling tiles and saw her name. I sat right under it all year. From then on, I've always looked (literally and figuratively ) up to her<3

I gotta say, I don't think it's accurate for the bio to say that she's heavily influenced by the confessional alternative folk stylings of Ani DiFranco. They're close friends and co-creators, but have wildly different styles. Anais is a much more of a story-teller and poet; she tends to turn what personal content she has in her songs into fables. Otherwise her end product is mythical regardless of whether or not it's based on real life. Patty Griffin, maybe, but Ani DiFranco not so much.

I was in a songwriting class with Anais about 10 years ago when I lived in Boston. She is immensely talented and a beautiful, kind person. I am so happy for her!

I met Anais as a Quaker kid going to meetings in PA with our parents. She was always a poet.
Anais Mitchell sure sounds good to me
It must be nice to become that which most aspire to be.
I saw her with Ani in Santa Cruz...been a fan ever since...she' s awesome..the stuff she played that is coming on the next album sounds awesome.
........uniq u e . . . . . . . a n d has good sense to include tenor sax in band........ . . . . y e a h baby........ .
she inspires me not only with her talent but her knowledge...
Her voice scares me, but that's my opinon.
Anais has a haunting, beautiful voice and a true gift for story telling through song. She kept popping up on my Joanna Newsom station and I couldn't ignore her any longer. A great decision on my part. Keep it up, Anais darlin'.
