Mitchell Schimnowski                    




Winnipeg, Manitoba    


My music will be available for download on iTunes in the near future! (no exact date unfortunately)   

UPCOMING GOALS:            

 Currently writing songs like a mad man in the hopes of pitching and selling them to other artists. 


The kindness of this blog post and the exposure to your lovely fans is more help to me than you'll ever know! 


   How did we first meet?

I first met Brittney at the Winnipeg Folk Festival where we were both a part of the Galaxy Young Performers Program.

   Your favorite Brittney Grabill song and why?

Brittney gave me a lyric sheet months and months ago of a song called "Goodbye" that I still have in my guitar case and see every time I open it up. Great and honest lyrics, a pretty melody, what more could you ask for? 

   If Brittney was a candy , she would be a cinnamon heart. 

FUN QUESTIONS: (10 Questions)

   What was the last picture you took on your phone?

A screenshot of a hilarious snap chat sent from a friend.   

   Best compliment you’ve received this week?

While wandering through a local grocery store earlier this week I had a sweet elderly woman come up to me and say, "hey guy, you really boogie when you boogie." I'm still trying to figure out what she meant by this, but for now, I'll take it as a compliment! 

   If you could be any age this week, what age would you be?

I think I'd be back in high school again. Life just seemed so much simpler back then. 

   What cheers you up?

My family is everything to me. They never fail to pick me up when I'm at my lowest.

   Do you have a favorite book, or read much?

I have a huge, nerdy love for the "Lord of the Rings" novels. I never grow tired of hearing those stories. 

   If you could spend the day with any celebrity, who would it be?

If I could spend even an hour picking John Mayer's brain I would be in absolute heaven. As a guitar player, I've developed the most insane man crush on him. 

   What famous person has people told you that you most resemble?

I've been told I act like Michael Cera in a very awkward way. I was told by an Australian lady that my songs sound like they're by John Mayer or Keith Urban, which was incredibly kind of her to compare me to such talented people but I'm not sure it's the most accurate comparison.

   What is your favorite thing to spend money on?

Fast food! I've ate so much fast food in my life that I should forever be in a coma. I also spend far too much money on guitars and guitar related things. 

   If you could be trapped in a TV show for a month, which would you choose? (Or Movie)

I absolutely love Game of Thrones but I'm not sure that it's the most hospitable TV show in the world. (Spoiler alert: don't get attached to any characters, chances are they're going to be killed off at some point) 

   Are you in love?

Does my cat count?
