MISHKA SHUBALY - COWARDS PATH
Misha Shubaly is a hard-bitten Canadian born 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.
“Coward’s Path” is his darkest and funniest record yet. It details his decent into the nadir of alcoholism in unflinching, often hilarious detail. As lush as the instrumentation is, lyrics are where Shubaly really shines. No wonder: he is a bestselling author with six #1 Amazon Kindle Singles and a full length memoir due out in 2016.
Having plunged headlong into the gutter, he has mined his life experience as a bottom of-the-barrel drunk, and emerged with a devil-may-care-grin. The songs weave so fluidly through tragedy and comedy that you’ll find yourself wondering: should I be laughing? should I be crying? Either way, its a singular listening experience and a triumph of the human will; that we can find humour even in the midnight darkness.
