Introducing Mitchell Brunings

Star of The Voice Holland and global performer

Having been born in Surinam – a northern country of South America – and raised in The Netherlands, Mitchell Brunings had a plethora of musical influences from all over the world.

Reggae, Bossanova, Samba, Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Calypso, Country, Salsa, Merengue, Surinam’s own traditional music called Kaseko, and a host of other styles have lent their authority to Brunings’ raspy and soulful music style.

The Netherlands based musician spent time in clubs imbued with R&B notes and classic Motown. If he had to choose, reggae music would be his greatest love and driving force. Mitchell says;

The one drop, stepper rhythm, the heartbeat of reggae is hypnotizing to me. The consciousness of the lyrics in most reggae songs has always been of great inspiration to me.

As an artist, Brunings hopes to represent pure reggae with clear and soulful influences.
