We had the good fortune of connecting with Christian Mitchell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christian, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
The process behind starting Sound on the Hill, Sound Everywhere grew into its own purpose. Everything happened naturally. The only mission I had in mind at the time was to show acknowledgment towards creatives and entrepreneurs who weren’t getting the attention they deserved or needed. Whether I knew them personally or just admired them from afar, I made it a duty to show gratitude any way possible to Fine Arts and especially black culture. I honestly didn’t realize what I was creating until my friends and family brought it to my attention how many people I was actually encouraging to pursue their dreams. It’s amazing how highlighting the positive can benefit your life and everyone around you.
 
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to dedicate this shoutout to my mom, my grandmother, my two sisters, my two best friends, my boyfriend, my team, and most of all God!! This may seem like a lot of people to shout out at once, but I really wouldn’t be in the position I am right now if it weren’t for all of the people I have listed. In April 2019, I lost my father, and felt like my entire world collapsed. As we have entered April 2021, I reflect on how blessed I am to have these beautiful people as a support system to hold me up at any given moment. It’s truly an honor and every day, I’m grateful for their presence in my life.
