"a beaming ray of jet-black sunshine" - The Village Voice
After receiving an expensive MFA in Fiction from Columbia University, Mishka Shubaly promptly realized he was more interested in playing music in dive bars than writing. He lived out of a Toyota minivan for a year, touring non-stop, and shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Decemberists among others. He’s become a cult favorite, opening nationally for comedy iconoclast Doug Stanhope, penning the soundtrack for The Unbookables documentary, and headlining the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour. Adrian Grenier played drums for a new single and Shubaly’s most recent record “Coward’s Path” has won praise from Johnny Depp and Joe Perry.
