Mittie Root

Born and raised in Kentucky, I’ve loved to sing and play music as long as I can remember. I began taking piano lessons at a young age but grew bored of the classical training and scales. It was then that my mama took me to the music store and let me pick out sheet music of current radio hits and thus began my love of singing and playing.

Somewhere in my mid-20s an old friend gave me my first guitar (Simon & Patrick). I learned a few basic chords and quickly realized it was much easier to tote around than a piano.

While I like to write fun songs and ballads, my most favorite songs tell a good story.
So that’s what I try to do – and then I build up the courage to share it.

And there’s just something about that that makes my heart happy.
