An up-and-coming performer quickly gaining attention for his creativity and improvisational skill, Alex Mitchell is pushing the limits of what the violin can do. Armed with a 5-string violin and a host of guitar effects, Alex forms his compositions around the concept of looping and delay, in which parts are layered to create the illusion of multiple instruments. At times he sounds like a deep cello, a multi-octave ensemble, a screaming guitar, or a soothing synthesizer - all out of one instrument, all live.

Alex has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Constitution Hall (to a crowd of 3,000), the Canadian Embassy, the German Cultural Center in New York, internationally in Salzburg, Austria for Mozart's 250th Birthday (2006) and Dublin, Ireland for a run of several pubs and a performance at Christchurch (2009), the Palladium in McLean, Disneyworld, several middle and elementary schools in Virginia for educational outreach, and several rock venues and private events in Manhattan and Virginia.

Several of Alex's live performances on YouTube have received over 300,000 views (as of this writing) and given him international recognition by a small but supportive f YouTube an base. Following the attention, he recorded two low-budget iTunes albums: "Evolution" in 2007, and "Intercosm" in 2008. In 2009, he recorded a single, "Evolution" with Radian Records. He is currently recording an album that will replace these two, and is seeking a label for this major release.

Alex is pursuing his music in New York city while studying at Fordham University. Since moving to New York, he is now affiliated with the PUMP NY management firm and the Original Sessions booking agency.
