Glasgow Student Goes From Busking Beginnings to Shining Stardom:

Murdo Mitchell is a singer-songwriter from Glasgow who recently joined the Academy of Music and Sound Scotland as part of the HNC Singer-Songwriter cohort.

With his unique voice and upbeat self-penned folk-rock songs he has amassed a wide and active fan base which he can proudly say includes sixties icon Donovan. This Hurdy Gurdy Man recently said of the eighteen-year-old musician, “…he has what I had at his age, the hunger to communicate.”

With such endorsements it’s no surprise then that Murdo has been adding to his ever growing fan base – over 5,000 Twitter followers – with a slew of gigs. From an impromptu slot with Glen Hansard at The Old Fruitmarket to supporting X-Factor star Nicky McDonald on his UK Tour, Murdo has been fervently honing his live skills and performance since the age of eleven. Now currently writing new material – following up 2014’s single ‘Better Than Me’ – he is looking forward to securing festival slots and showcasing the new songs.

From busking beginnings to shining star, Murdo Mitchell’s endearing and heartfelt lyrics are steadfastly garnering additional press coverage and radio play. It’s an exciting time, and with such raw talent he clearly belies his 2013 track title ‘No One Has It All’.
