“Mitchell’s command of the instrument is evident and his tone is righteous” – Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine
“Mike Mitchell is another one of those multi-talented, self-produced artists who’s a pure joy to uncover…” – Bluegrass Now Magazine
“Mitchell is a smooth and talented fiddler and also sings smoothly in a contemporary style. His ‘Jerusalem Ridge’ is more ethereal than hard-edged, more laidback than ominous. ‘Music In Our Souls’ is about the life of a musician. ‘Eat My Dust’ is a more ethereal piece, and Mitchell’s fiddling is just right.” – Bluegrass Unlimited
