2009 release, the third album from the 'organic' singer/songwriter who mixes the relaxed style of Jack Johnson with a deep Reggae groove. Mishka's varied musical interests are evident on Above the Bones but his vocals may be the most captivating element of the album. His striking tenor is mellow and intense with a bluesy quality that gives every word an aching intensity. It's a timeless voice, the familiar sound of a friend you've always known but never met. 'Higher Heights' opens the album with a roots Reggae vibe. It's a song of empowerment and encouragement to people who want to see more love and unity in the world, an invitation to let our better nature shine and heal the troubled world we live in. Other stand out tracks include 'Coastline Journey' with laid back conga lines and surfer style guitar licks; 'Mountains Meet the Sea', a tender Rock ballad and 'Train Again', a tune that brings to mind the early Wailers with its funky Clavinet and rock guitar leads. With an album that fully realizes his multifaceted musical vision, Mishka is the first artist signed to Matthew McConaughey's j.k. livin label.
