Twitch icon Mitch Jones has sent fans into a frenzy with the release of his debut EP “If I Could Go Back.” Mitch has found recent success within the music scene, with his single ‘Now That You’re Gone,’ as a tribute to a close friend Reckful that he lost a little under a year ago. The artist has turned to music and songwriting as an outlet for therapy, as he endures heartbreak, attachment, and loss.
Over the past decade, Mitch has built a platform for himself via Twitch, gaining over half a million dedicated followers through streaming. This fanbase has continued to support this transition from streaming to making music, generating hundreds of thousands of views from fans and Twitch streamers such as XQC, Pokimane, Mizkif, and many more after his very first release.
In a recent interview, the artist stated, “I’ve been a full-time streamer for the past 10 years. I became a person that everyone who watched me wanted to see, and it slowly broke down my mental health over time. I lost some of the best people in my life, to death, or just having them leave me for all of my poor choices. In early 2021, Kala and I connected and we started making music together and it has helped me more than any therapy could. I want to write songs to save people who are struggling, just like I’ve been. Thank you to all of the real ones from Twitch who have supported me in this journey into music. I hope the music can help at least one other person.” Producer powerhouse Kurtis Lloyd (Kala) and Mitch work well together and have continued to build out this project since day one of entering the music space.
The 6-track project underlines Mitch’s shift from one industry to another, alongside his unique ability to connect the gap between Twitch users and the platform’s music streaming rules. Although this is not uncommon for Twitch streamers to transition into music, Mitch is one of the few to successfully navigate the process. Listen now on all platforms, as this project is something to be excited about.
