Beginning as a solo rap project, MITCHMATIC has expanded into a multi-genre performance that mixes elements of jazz, rap, R&B, pop and electronic music. The band is fronted by Mitch Holtby, a composer and instrumentalist who performs on saxophone and keys, as well as singing, rapping and scratching.
Since beginning MITCHMATIC in 2007, Mitch Holtby has released three albums, multiple singles, and played in cities around North America. Recently he has expanded his solo project into a full band, that, while retaining aspects of rap and hip-hop, explores new sonic territory, weaving classic influences into an exciting and tasteful live performance.
MITCHMATIC appeals to a wide audience, staging a high-energy, entertaining show with a rich array of influences -- it's fun and accessible yet sophisticated and intricate.
