One broken world and ten funny songs to fix it.  From BBC Radio 4's "Now Show" to his column in the New European, Mitch spreads insight and laughs in equal measure.  Join the "country's leading musical satirist" (The Times) as, with six string in hand and a head full of silly rhymes, he identifies the problems and proposes (semi-serious) solutions.

“Well crafted lyrics, catchy tunes and a charismatic performer. 

What more could you ask for?” Leicester Mercury

"Undoubted skill as a musician and delightfully cutting wit" One 4 Review

He’s Britain’s answer to Tom Lehrer” The Swindonian

 “Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny” The Guardian
