Gene Mitchell was born and raised in a harbor town on the coast of Georgia where he began writing and performing music. He served our country in the United States Navy for 21 years and was decorated with the Meritorious Service Medal from the President of the United States among other Medals from the Secretary of the Navy. He continued his songwriting and performing while in the Navy, and earned two college degrees with honors. During his 21 years in the Navy wrote and produced over 100 songs about sailing and adventures in more than 30 countries he visited. Though his music still maintains that southern style, his years in Hawaii, the South Pacific and the Caribbean strongly influence his jazzy island styles.

Gene has continued to write since becoming a full time musician and has released even more high quality CDs and his albums feature such artists as John Raymond (guitarist for Kenny G), Amy Lee (saxophonist for Jimmy Buffett) and Troy King (current writer of the music for Temptation Island on Fox) and Rick Cathaway (bassist for the Osmonds). Two of Gene's CDs feature artwork by world famous Florida artist Paul Brent.

Gene's children's book "Welcome To Florida" with sing-a-long CD is sold throughout Florida.
Gene's song "Greetings From Florida," from the CD of the same title, is currently used as the theme song for "The Morning Show," broadcast live Monday through Friday at 7:00am on FOX, Channel 8 - WPGX, Northwest Florida's newest live television show, hosted by Tom Najjar.

Gene's songs can be found on several compilation CDs, "Songs For Sailors, Volume One" published by the national boating magazine "Lattitudes and Attitudes (The Cruising Lifestyle)", "Sailing" published by Migration Music, and "Thongs In The Key Of Life, Volume 2" published by Lulu Records, to name a few. Go to and search "Gene Mitchell" to find out where Gene has been and is going. Click on News/Gigs on this site for updated information.

"Gene Mitchell's lyrics are thought provoking and his melodies sing-a-long, a winning combination."
- quote by Norman Saleet (songwriter for the Billboard #1 hit by Air Supply "Here I Am" and Salena's hit "Where Did The Feeling Go")

I was looking for music to accompany a slide show of our Junior Sailing Progam. The first two songs "sail-abration" and "the sun and the wind" could not have been more perfect. Many people commented on how great the music was. Thank you!
