Mishka Shubaly
Mishka Shubaly
Mishka Shubaly defies easy description. He is a veteran
singer/songwriter who tours all over the USA and has shared the stage with The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Decemberists. He is often compared to Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, and Leonard Cohen.Having now played gigs in thirty-seven US states and other several countries, in 2015 Mishka's album "Coward's Path" is being released by Invisible Hands Music in the UK.. It is a tragic, funny and always honest account of his former life dealing with addiction and what happened along the path to sobriety. Johnny Depp calls it, "Always a favourite – sublime!" and comedian Doug Stanhope says, "If you have ever considered committing suicide at happy hour, Mishka Shubaly is the singer-songwriter for you."

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 nonstop, and has shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Decemberists among others. "Bad Dreams," a narrative published in NYPress about his romance with an opiate marked his return to writing.

His Kindle Singles for Amazon have all been bestsellers. He writes true stories about drink, drugs, disasters, desire, deception and their aftermath. His work has been praised for its grit, humor, fearlessness and heart. 'The Long Run,' his mini-memoir detailing his transformation from alcoholic drug abuser to sober ultrarunner is one of the best-selling Kindle Singles to date.

In 2016, Public Affairs published his first hardcover memoir, "I Swear I'll Make It Up to You."
