Born in Bermuda and raised in the Caribbean, Mishka is a traveler and a sailor at heart. A free spirit, whose lyrics melodies and grooves, are reflections of the roots and culture in which he grew, Mishka’s music is Caribbean at the core, and yet it's an eclectic sound that contains many elements and genres. From bass heavy roots reggae, to mellow acoustic ballads, songs of love, songs of social justice and consciousness, you have to hear for yourself and experience the music." "
With 16 years of touring and recording under his belt, Mishka has seen many aspects of the music industry. From London to Hollywood, he has been on both major and independent labels, and his songs have been featured on sound tracks in films and t.v. all over the globe.
