His solid and seamless live performances, his love of words and clever use of the English language underpin a polished song craft and vocal style from the pinnacle of the best 70s singer songwriters; James Taylor, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, Khristian Mizzi is in there.  ”

KHRISTIAN MIZZI

With a warm, enchanting voice and an art for weaving beauty and truth into the words of each song, Khristian Mizzi  reaches the hearts of his audiences. His performances have been described as being 'captivating'. Poetic lyrics, meandering melodies and an articulate and soulful voice along with a unique picking style, Khristian is a complete musician and is becoming renowned for his intimate performances and thoughtful songs.  

Khristian has spent most of his life dedicated to his work as a songwriter and performer and has been performing as a solo artist for over a decade. He is a genuine music lover and this is reflected in his song writing which draws inspiration from the singer/songwriter greats of the early seventies.

Born in Gippsland, Victoria, he spent his early twenties balancing young fatherhood and life as a travelling musician. This meant days at a time spent on the highways, between country Victoria where the family was and his regular gigs in throughout the state.  

In 2006 Khristian won the 'Just Guitars' award at Port Fairy Folk Festival, as well as 'The Best Song' for his tune 'Wishing' at The Basin Music Festival. In 2009 Khristian released his first EP (The Road Between) and has since become a mainstay of the Melbourne music scene. 

His 2017 selftitled EP was recorded with award winning producer Kalju Tonuma and guitarist Megan Bernard (MEJU). In an old farmhouse, over an evening of food & wine, laughter and friendship in the winter of 2016. Each track performed live with the intention of delivering the most authentic sound and capturing the spirit of the music. 

Khristian Mizzi is fast becoming a favourite amongst Folk Music fans throughout Australia. In 2017 he was awarded the 'Troubadour Artist' of the year award at The Newstead Live! Folk Festival. More recently, he has performed as headline act at various Regional Concert Halls, House Concerts and has performed at numerous Festivals around the country where he continues to captivate capacity audiences. His songs have had an overwhelming public response which continues to grow. 

Khristian has started work on his first solo full length album which he hopes to release at the end of 2018.
