Gig Preview: Mishka Shubaly UK Tour
This May 2016, musician, best-selling author and storyteller Mishka Shubaly will embark on a tour of the UK, showcasing tracks from his well-received ‘Cowards Path’ album - released through Invisible Hands Music.
Shubaly himself calls his work a “collection of depressing, alcoholic, nihilistic songs” and, whilst he’s correct, there’s hope here too amongst the piles of broken bottles, promises, dreams and bones. As Classic Rock Presents The Blues observed, “His brand of self-loathing bar-floor blues is about truths that are never pure, rarely simple, and often darkly amusing”. Blues In Britain hailed his “Brutally frank dispatches from the gutter”.
A celebrated best-selling author, with six No.1 Kindle ‘Singles’ having been translated into four languages and nearly 200,000 units sold, Shubaly’s last collection had a foreword by Jeff Bezos. His latest book, ‘I Swear I´ll Make It Up to You’, was released on 8th March.
Shubaly will play the Slaughtered Lamb, London, on 22nd May, and six other dates around the country. Take a look at the full tour dates below.
