Mishka Shubaly is a hard-bitten American singer/ songwriter, praised by voices as disparate as actor Johnny Depp, firebrand comedian Doug Stanhope, and Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos. “Coward’s Path” is his darkest and funniest record yet. It details his descent into the nadir of alcoholism in unflinching, often hilarious detail. As lush as the instrumentation is, lyrics are where Shubaly really shines. No wonder: he is a bestselling author with six #1 Amazon Kindle Singles and a full length memoir due out in 2016.
Hugh Cornwell completed his new album Hooverdam and first film Blueprint (a live studio performance of the film and interview) in Toerag Studios in 2008 with producer Liam Watson, best known for producing the White Stripes' Elephant. Hooverdam is also available worldwide as a high-quality free download from Hugh's own website and from www.hooverdamdownload.com. The physical release is a triple-sleeved digipak featuring both album and film in one exclusive CD / DVD package.
Miranda Lee Richards is a gifted Los Angeles-based singer songwriter. Born in San Francisco after the summer of love and before the dawn of disco, she grew up in an artistic and bohemian environment that has informed her adult life and work. Early demos of her songs reached the ears of Anton Newcombe, and she soon joined his band The Brian Jonestown Massacre. She sang on their early recordings, including the first track on the debut album, and appeared with them in the seminal documentary DIG!
Night World formed in the late 80s by singer / songwriter Charles Kennedy.

albums. Recent releases included music by guitarist Stevie Salas, Silver Sun (two studio albums), Hugh Cornwell (two studio albums and a live set) and Thomas Dolby (live CD / DVD box set).
