Grassi’s career started when he was still in high school – in 2011 “The Trio” became Pentatonix, actually adding two more members to their group. That same year they joined the reality singing competition “The Sing Off”, wherein a cappella groups compete for $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music.

The following year they released their first EP “PTX, Volume 1”, later on followed by “PTXmas.” The early years of Pentatonix helped establish Mitch’s career along with the group, significantly increasing his and their net worth.
After Pentatonix’ contract with Sony Music ended, Grassi and Hoying decided to turn to the Internet, and create a YouTube channel – in August 2013, “Superfruit” went live, and to date they have 254 videos and have attracted over two million subscribers to their channel. They are also known to collaborate with various personalities, including Tyler Oakley, Tori Kelly, Todrick Hall and Masie Williams among others. The success of “Superfruit” has also helped in Grassi’s success and in raising his wealth.
In 2014 Grassi along with the Pentatonix signed a new deal with RCA Records, and have since released a number of EPs and six albums, including “PTX, Vols. 1 & 2”, “PTX”, “That’s Christmas To Me”, “Pentatonix”, “A Pentatonix Christmas”, and “PTX Presents: Top Pop, Vol. 1”.
