Synopsis

Album Description
Born in Bermuda, Mishka lived with his parents on a sailboat from the age of three onwards. Lyrically, his favorite similes are of the sea ? he has a bulging notebook of "ocean songs." In conversation, he looks back without evident nostalgia or myth-making on an early life growing up at sea. While other children were glued to the television and video games, Mishka was offered endless hours in which to reflect, draw, read and write. Fast-forward to the present, and you find a man in his mid-twenties whose songs sound like the work of a young Sam Cooke mixed with shades of Bob Marley and that indefinable something that heralds a great pop record. Attempting to analyze that "X factor" only adds to the mystery. As Mishka reminds us: "People always check out your influences, but you don?t really know what your influences are. It might be a bird singing while you?re walking down the street or a breeze going past you. That could be what makes you want to write a song."

CD Reviews

My new favorite song
G. McMahon | Hood River, OR United States | 01/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a soulful, happy album. I can't help but sing the title song wherever I am because it's so melodic and catchy. As with many others, I caught on to Mishka thanks to the movie and this album doesn't disappoint. If you like the smoother Bob songs then you'll dig this album."
A wonderful relaxing CD

"Got this CD for the one wonderful song...No Need To Worry. It was a pleasant surprise to find the rest of the CD was just as wonderful. Mellow, peaceful, and positive."
