The Lizard is very excited to welcome back Mishka and Sarah Blacker! Mishka is an internationally known reggae artist from Bermuda. He released his first self-titled album Mishka in 1999 and had a hit single in the UK with "Give You All The Love". He is currently signed to Jimmy Buffetts record label, Mailboat records, and is touring in support of his latest album, 'Ocean is my Potion'. He is also the face of ECO-Neill, surf-clothing company O'Neill's new eco-friendly apparel line.
Hawaiian based Reggae Pop star Mishka has always been a traveler. A man on a conscious musical mission, his Journey has now come full circle.
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.
Sarah Blacker just returned from a 6-week national tour through PA, MI, IL, KS, CO, ID, WA, CA, and TX in support of her new album, 'In Waves.' She is currently touring New England with plans for the midwest this fall, and west coast this winter. To see photos from the tour / read more about the shows and her adventure, visit her facebook, and instagram pages.
Boston's "Sundress Rocker," Sarah Blacker's music will make you "feel it all, In Waves." Taken from the title track of her forthcoming release, this lyric immediately informs the listener as to the emotional content of her songs. The record is filled with skillful rhythm guitar, piano and ukulele, and sung with a uniquely soulful voice which is much bigger than the size of the artist it comes from.

Since his last studio release Mishka has reworked and re-issued several of his early albums. He also was invited to travel to Key West Fl., where he recorded at Jimmy Buffet's Shrimp Boat studio. The Key West recordings resulted in an EP entitled Ocean is My Potion.
