Marked for greatness from an early age by Blues behemoth Walter Trout, Mitch Laddie has been honing his virtuoso guitar playing on the big stage since being signed to Provogue Records at 17.
He has released two albums to critical acclaim and is known throughout the European scene as a volcanic guitar genius with musical subtleties and a maturity far beyond his years, cemented when follow-up album “Burning Bridges” was voted ‘Best Blues Album of 2012’ by Blues & Soul Magazine.
He was voted by a throng of passionate fans to play the Galtres Parklands Festival in 2013 and was unaware until the festival organisers contacted him.
Mitch is complemented by two extraordinary musicians in their own right: powerhouse drummer Matt Connor, and the effusively cool Rhian Wilkinson. With his rhythm section underpinned by a firm and genuine friendship, the trio are airlock-tight and are known for delving into ethereal, funky jams.
Influenced by Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Michael Jackson, Prince and The Police, Mitch Laddie Band blend a plethora of styles into a unique and modern take on soulful, guitar-driven music.
Mitch has it all: Talent, humility and a musical integrity that galvanises an international fan-base.
