Mishka Shubaly – Death in Greenpoint
Quick note: Good deep male-vocal psycho-thriller tune in the keys of C-W-A (creepy, witty & awesome!)
Mishka is one of those guys you want to hang out with for the entire weekend. He’s such a good human. Besides music, he’s been making a living off his amazing writing. He’s such a solid story teller and it really shows in this song. The lyrics make me laugh, though they suggest darker days.
Everything is coming up Mishka Shubaly. The busted songwriter turned writer had a huge 2011– his Kindle Single “Shipwrecked” went to number one over Jonathan Krakauer and David Baldacci and won him the opportunity to tell his story live for The Moth Radio Hour, which was broadcast around the country by NPR and included on The Moth’s most recent two CD collection. In October, his Kindle Single “The Long Run” rocketed to number one over Stephen King and has stayed in the top ten for three months and counting.
Still, Shubaly made time this winter to record a new track with old friends Joanna Erdos and Adrian Grenier (HBO’s Entourage).
“In ’99, he was just another dude, hanging out and making music with his friends. But when the rest of us were working in bars or just drinking in bars, Adrian was working on something else. Things are different now, for all of us, but the ‘making music with friends’ part never went away,” Shubaly says of the experience.
