Akron Ohio native Chris Mitchell loves to sing and is almost always doing what he loves. Spend more than a few minutes with him and you will be serenaded with verses, choruses, and instrumental breaks real and imagined, sung, hummed, scatted, and tapped. It could be annoying, but he does it well.
In 2012 Chris recorded a very popular version of Madonna's "Like A Virgin" for the major motion picture Magic Mike. Even though the song was not included on the soundtrack, it exposed his music and voice to hundred's of thousands of new fans worldwide.
In the late 1990’s, Mitchell reigned supreme over the Nashville party scene and fans flocked to see what he would do next with his band The Collection, a spectacle that included hot pants, feather boas, choir robes, nonstop dance grooves, and the best vocals anyone had ever heard in a Nashville club. Chris Mitchell and The Collection opened for The Ohio Players, Parliament Funkadelic, and KC & The Sunshine Band just to name a few.
Over the years Chris has continued to stay busy teaching voice, producing, writing, and doing background vocals for recording sessions in his current home of Nashville, TN.
Chris is currently working on producing original material for his label, Nickelbug Records in Nashville, TN. He also performs with his bands GIZMO, and Chris Mitchell & The Collection. Chris is often on stage with The Black Jacket Symphony, The Long Players, Trial by Fire and Ned Zeppelin.
