The Illinois native AJ Mitchell with Epic Records released his first EP, Hopeful. Talented 17- year- old artist Mitchell
built a huge fan base and cultivating his
fan base with a succession of musical releases. He started writing songs about six years old inspired by his dad. AJ just likes writing about what’s happening in his life.
“I guess being Hopeful has kind of been an idea in my whole journey in music so far,” he says.
“I started to notice my friends are all pursuing dreams; acting, singing, dancing, politics, doing stuff on social media.
Kids are having a voice and people are paying attention.
And well…I think it started as hoping people would be into the covers I was posting.
Then I was Hopeful that people would like my music, come see me play live, and sing along to my lyrics.
Putting out this music is something I’ve been Hopeful about for a while. I’m just so excited to share it with my fans and everyone.”
