About the Artist

Jordan Devaughn Mitchell (b. 1997), is a composer from Stockton, California who studies under Leslie Hogan and Jeremy Haladyna at the University of California, Santa Barbara in addition to UCSB alumnus Juan Zaragoza. He is a multicultural music educator, professional mariachi, audio engineer, and producer whose production cannot be confined to one musical genre, but a blend of multiple styles ranging from Mariachi to Trap. His senior recital, entitled Intuitive Memories: A Journal of Life, contains a musical mixture of orchestral music, mariachi styles such as Vals and Joropos, string quartets, wind quintets, and hip-hop.
