Last week I got an email from our buddy Shawn letting me know about a new project from Mishka. If you don’t know who Mishka is, he is a smooth reggae artist that brings the island vibe to you in an inspiring way. I’ve written about Mishka in the past here and here.
It looks like Mishka has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new album. In the video he talks about making a fresh start, and making an album on his terms and his unique vision. Does this mean he has split from the J K Living label? I’m not sure. Here is some of what Mishka has to say on his Kickstarter campaign.
It starts with a vision…You write a song, record a song and stay as close to the original vision as possible.
That’s the creative freedom I am looking for right now!
Greetings, it’s me Mishka. Welcome to my Kick Starter Campaign. If you don’t know me already, let me tell you a little bit about myself; I’m a singer, I’m a songwriter, I’m a recording artist, and I am a live performing artist. I have been on various labels over the years and have recorded 4 studio albums to date, but right now I am making a fresh start. For the first time since 1998 when I starting recording music I’m going to record an independent album. This is really exciting for me. I’ve got a production team I can work with whom are really inspired and can help bring my vision to life in a way I have never been able to do before. Now with your help and through Kick Starter, I can make this a reality.
I welcome you to be a part of the Kick Starter, and thank you very much for taking the time to check it out. In return I have some exclusive experiential and material things that you won’t find anywhere else. Check out the pledge rewards for exclusive music, posters, t-shirts as well as one of kind items and performance opportunities.
At the time of this writing it looks as if Mishka is nearly halfway to his $50,000 goal to create his independent album. Contributors can donate as little as $5 all they way up to thousands of dollars. Each donation level offers the person exclusive Mishka merchandise from signed CDs to private concerts.

I love everything Mishka puts out so I hope he reaches his goal and we all get to listen to some new smooth reggae beats.
