Mitch Laddie is an artist from the north east of England who, at 21, has just released his second album - “Burning Bridges”. Inspired collectively by the work of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Gales and John Mayer, the record sees Laddie progressing from his debut effort, supplementing his guitar wizardry with a stronger focus on quality song writing.
Mitch signed to his first record label at 16, and released his debut album “This Time Around” at 18. He’s toured the UK and Europe supporting iconic bluesman Walter Trout and already has his own burgeoning international fanbase.
Marrying his volcanic guitar with a pop sensibility style, reminiscent of the police, blues fans in the UK and abroad have eagerly anticipated Mitch’s next effort, which is now available!

“These blues-rockin’ tykes may seem insanely youthful, Their influences -Wishbone Ash, Jethro Tull, Jimi Hendrix, Jethro Tull (Which might explain their name) - are proper old school, as is their blistering, blustering second album album The Long Road To Home. The bands award winning guitar hero Andrew Pipe has gusted onstage with the likes of Oli Brown, Ian Parker and Wishbone Ash, and the ash intend to take these bluesy bairns to The Netherlands with them in January” - Classic Rock Blues Magazine
