    If you all LOVE Mishka, check out the Nikhil Korula Band. It's not reggae, but def has some reggae influence plus they just played with Stephen Marley and Dave Matthews Band.
  • Beautiful Album

    This is some of the best new music I have heard in a long time. Every single track is so chill and mellow but doesnt get boring. Perfect music for summer and for thinking about summer. Told a bunch of friends about him and everyone agrees that this is worth buying.
  • One of the best albums I've ever listened to.

    Fantastic, deeply personal music that is as true today as it will be in a hundred years. It does not get a whole lot better than this. Buy it and you will not regret it!
  • Outstanding Slow Easy Raggae

    All of the songs are great. If you like international reggae done acoustically, this is one of the best. Heard this CD at a street sale by an independent records shop in Concord NH back in 2001 (Pitchfork Records). Tried to buy it that day but the store was out of it. Took me a long time to track it down, and I finally found it here a few years ago. It is truly a favorite of mine. This is great music which can be described as reggae with a slow beat and haunting vocals. You can hear over and over again. I have played it for several folks who ended up requiring a copy. For what it’s worth my kids love it too, especially the old Joe song (Johanna). Glad he put out a second CD finally.
  • A very personal and beautiful album

    His entire debut album carries a subdued, acoustic guitar-driven sound which, combined with his heavily Marley-influenced vocals, make for a nice yet derivative set. At their best, Mishka's songs -- like "Happy," "Lonely," and "Bring a Man Down" -- are hypnotic and compelling in their simplicity. He crafts "hummable" melodies, and his singing is heartfelt. There is a folk-like (and in the case of "One True," blues-like) edge running through Mishka, as only "Lonely" has what you'd consider a typical hiccup-beat reggae rhythm. The rest are dominated by Mishka's acoustic guitar, with light percussion, bass, organ, and/or even harmonica thrown in here and there. His mix of musical styles is certainly a result of his upbringing, being born in Bermuda to Canadian parents who traveled throughout the Caribbean during his childhood.
