"Somewhere between Balintore on Scotland’s North East coast and Sweden there is probably a wee star twinkling and radiating an abundance of creative warmth and affection that manifests itself in the musical collaboration of John Mitchell & Sofie Jonsson."
David Shannon, Scots Music
Hello and welcome to our website!
We have two exciting voting adventures going on at the moment:
1) Thanks to our wonderful followers we have been voted into the "live music experience of the year" category at the Dalecarlia Music Awards 2017! <3
So now we need YOUR vote to win this category, and we can tell you, it would mean sooo much to us! We are the underdogs here and up against some big names, so we need a small miracle really, but with your help, we might just be able to win this... Voting is really simple: just go to
and choose "John Mitchell & Sofie Jonsson" and then click "vote"! Thank you so much in advance!
2) Our band The Major Seconds is no 5 on local radio chart Dalatoppen with the song Rise with the River from our recent live EP! Voting can be done from Sweden - here is the link: http://t.sr.se/2lwxQ1K It would be so great to get to hear our song on the radio again! Thank you!
To wrap up last autumn's youtube series JOHNS VERANDA, with a big red bow on top, we have released all 15 audio tracks as a download album:
Also, we are so proud to be able to announce the support of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee for our tour together with Anna Fermin's Trigger Gospel last August!
Anna and the band are coming back to Sweden in September to tour with us - more info here: http://www.nannamusic.com
Thank you so much for visiting, and take care!
John & Sofie xx
