Mishka Shubaly

+ Birdcloud

 

“We all have heroes. In my heart, Mishka Shubaly will always be spilled over the bar next to me and playing in the jukebox of my soul.” – Doug Stanhope

“Forever a favorite – sublime!” – Johnny Depp
“Guy’s a fucking genius” – Joe Perry (Aerosmith)

“There’s no storyteller like Mishka Shubaly– hardcore on every emotional level, he scares the bejeezus out of me, especially when he’s cracking me up.” – Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

“The Kindle Singles bestseller list has anointed new stars, like Mishka Shubaly” –
The New York Times”

“the gruff and rough-voiced Shubaly is a chronicler of mankind’s darkest impulses and failures, a guy with a ticket to hell and back”
Time Out New York

“a beaming ray of jet-black sunshine”
The Village Voice

“Shubaly is earnestly obstinate, yet capable of change; a nihilist, and yet he seeks meaning; a walking contradiction and a joy to spend time with on paper.”
Amazon.com

 

Birdcloud

Banned from YouTube, booed at America’s Got Talent, and lauded for their irreverence by a global cult following, Birdcloud‘s music has been referred to as the ravenous id of today’s commercial country sound. Nashville natives Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green have spent years touring dive bars and lavish theaters across America. Birdcloud is currently celebrating the release of “Singles Only,” their greatest hits on double cum-colored vinyl.

James Walker

+ Matt Phillips

+ Judy Blank

 

 

English singer/songwriter James Walker is an introspective, intelligent & enthralling performer who sings songs of love, loss & healing. 

Originally a session musician, he performed as a piano player for a number of touring artists, spending six years playing smokey cafés, obscure European festivals and at small venues all over the continent.

Now, he’s heading out the road with songs of his own. Performing cuts from his debut record, English Bones, James will be travelling around the contintent with American artist Matt Phillips & Dutch songstress Judy Blank, telling stories and sharing songs all over. 

Stream his latest single, ‘Next to Me’ here:
https://open.spotify.com/track/6XkUZFiggpPfIj6UBBSt1r

Matt Phillips:

Matt comes from a long line of southern preachers, born in NC to a nurse & a psychologist. His lyrics are evocative & autobiographical, alluding to biblical history, transcendentalist literature, & notes from psych 101. 

With a parts guitar & a dynamic duo of guitar amps in tow, his tone is warm & familiar. In his 23 short years, he’s accumulated 10,000 hours of performance experience, from the North Carolina Boys Choir to the street corners of Chapel Hill. 

Matt will tell you the hardest truths in the sweetest way: “I must be onto something, ‘cause I smile when I play the blues.”

Currently out in Nashville recording her sophomore album, Judy Blank is one not to miss. 

Inspired by Americana/Country acts such as Joan Baez, Amanda Shires and many more, Judy is armed with a suitcase full of songs (and Mardi Gras beads) to show you this winter. 

Stream her debut album ‘When the Storm Hits’ here:
