Mitchell was born in Manchester, England and brought up in Preston, Lancashire. He attended Hutton Grammar School and later St Martins School of Art in the late 1970s where he graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Was awarded an Ivor Novello Award and is best known for scoring the movies: To Kill a King, Grand Theft Parsons, A Good Woman and the 1996 BBC period TV series The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
Mitchell is an English composer well known for his writing and arranging for choir and orchestra, though his compositions span a very wide range of styles varying from classical to more contemporary electronic genres such as drum and bass and trip hop. His versatility is displayed in his pedal steel guitar-based score for Grand Theft Parsons, which was highly praised at the 2004 Sundance Festival. He also has a reputation for composing world music scores such as the Tibetan score for Nick Gray's Escape from Tibet
His original score for To Kill a King in 2004 continued his successful relationship with director Mike Barker, for whom he scored A Good Woman (film) in 2005, and later the Sea Wolf (miniseries)' in 2008, followed by Moby Dick (2011 miniseries)'.
His score for the film Trial by Fire won an Ivor Novello Award in 2000 and the BBC period drama The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1996 miniseries) won Best Score at the Royal Television Society Awards in 1998.
In 2005, Mitchell composed the music for The Call of the Toad, written by Günter Grass and directed by Robert Glinskî. The score was recorded with the Polish Symphony Orchestra, and was nominated for a Polish Academy Award.
Aside from composing original scores for Film, Mitchell has scored music for Theatre Productions and Live Events which include the Opening Ceremony for Euro '96 at Wembley Stadium. He was commissioned to write the score for one-man theatre show Ousama with Nadim Sawalha directed by Corin Redgrave at the Brixton Shaw Theatre, and a jazz suite for the Francis Bacon Retrospective Exhibition at the Tate Britain in 2008.
