Mishka Shubaly is a storyteller, best-selling author, shipwreck survivor, sober alcoholic, and Doug Stanhope‘s favorite singer-songwriter. His raunchy, unapologetic, so-bleak-they-are-funny songs have won him a devoted following around the world. His fans include Johnny Depp, Mark Lanegan, and Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds). The Guardian describes his voice as one part rusty-nail-studded tarmac to one part engine-oil-stained sandpaper. His newest record ‘When We Were Animals’ featuring a duet with Cait O’Riordan of The Pogues is out June 2nd.
