ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sarah Peck Mitchell, known endearingly as Smitch, grew up in New Hampshire surrounded by her music-loving family. Throughout her childhood, she flirted with piano, trumpet, oboe and guitar before finding the instrument that stuck: voice. Smitch arranged and sang duets and performed in various choirs and groups in New Hampshire before moving on to sing at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. Along the way, she has performed musical genres from classical to folk and pop. After taking a hiatus from performing to live in Argentina and Spain, Smitch is loving her new home in Brooklyn, where she’s having a great time meeting and performing with new groups, such as the ultra-fun Potbelly Gumbo.
