From website
Listening to this 25-year-old singer/songwriter perform her meticulously written songs, fervently singing them in a distinctive, almost childlike voice, you'™d think it was her life mission to rouse the hearts and minds of her listeners with an acoustic guitar. But Mitchell wasn'™t always committed to the idea. 'I used to tell people I wanted to be a journalist. There is a lonely egotism and self-composure to journalists. Not unlike artists, they'™re always traveling, always writing, loving their loneliness, feeling somehow that they have their finger on the pulse '“ worshipping the truth and trying to render it legible.'

Despite her journalistic leanings, Mitchell started writing songs at age 17 and eventually started performing them live during her school days, which were punctuated by a remarkable amount of traveling. In a short period of time, Anaïs made several trips to the Middle East, and also spent time in Europe and Latin America, studying languages and world politics. This stunning, troubadour-like experience seeped into her music, and she became adept at fusing her passion for literature and journalism in her lyrics.
