After receiving an expensive MFA in Fiction from Columbia University in 2002, Mishka Shubaly promptly realized he was more interested in playing music in dive bars than writing. He moved into a Toyota minivan and toured non-stop. After some lean, hard years and a couple hundred thousand miles, he’s become a cult favorite, opening nationally for comedy iconoclastDoug Stanhope, penning the soundtrack for The Unbookablesdocumentary, headlining the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour and appearing on Warped Tour. He has shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Decemberists among others.

In 2011, Shubaly began publishing a series of mini-memoirs via Amazon Kindle Singles(six #1 bestsellers, more than 200,000 copies sold in five different languages). Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wrote the foreword for his collection. His account of getting shipwrecked for The Mothwas broadcast nationally on NPR and around the world. Shubaly’s full-length memoir I Swear I'll Make it Up to You(Hachette) was published in 2016 and has garnered praise from The Guardian, Publisher’s Weekly, GQ, Men’s Journal, and Brooklyn Magazine. His roadwork— 145 shows in 5 countries last year— has won him accolades from Portland, ORto New Yorkto the UK. His writing workshopat Yalehas been hailed by students as ‘transformative.’ He provides the theme music for the Doug Stanhope Podcastwhich goes out to more than 1.5 million listeners. Actor Adrian Grenier played drums for a single off the new record “When We Were Animals.” In 2017, he achieved his highest honor: he was a clue on Jeopardy!

Terence Foster Fox is a British Singer/Songwriter/ Bass Player and Guitar player.

In his teenage years Terence formed his first band with friends and very quickly they built a large following in their home town of Birmingham and were offered a recording contact with RCA Records. Shortly after they moved to England’s capital city London to take on the music world, but due to musical differences the band soon split.

Once in London Terence was offered a place in the London band called ‘ Altra’ who soon gained a recording contract with Sony and toured England and mainland Europe. After two years on the road Altra relocated to New York City where the band split, once again due to musical differences. This did not deter Terence who, once in New York, was offered bass player, guitar player and singer roles in key New York acts such as The Smitty’s, The Big Geraniums, The Everyothers , Dean Deleo (STP) and singing star Dido , who was working in New York at the time.

After a year of playing Terence was offered a permanent place in the notorious New York band ‘ Nancy Boy’ who went record their album for Hollywood records in the legendary recording studio ‘ Bearsville’ made famous by Bob Dylan and The Band. Also during this period Terence performed in the massive Off Broadway hit ‘ Hedwig And The Angry Inch’ which later went on to become a big cult classic movie.

Once ‘ Nancy Boy ‘ had run it’s course Terence returned to London to figure his next move. A chance meeting on the street with producer friend Dan Parry provided his next project. The two of them wrote and recorded material and from that Terence put together a 3 piece rock act ‘ The Riffs’ who enjoyed success on the live circuit of London. New York and Cape Town ( South Africa ).

Currently Terence has been writing songs with/for Australian Singer ‘Declan Carrier’ who has just released his first single ‘ Saving All My Love’ which has been receiving worldwide airplay. Terence’s main focus has been to join forces with Brazilian guitar wizard, Gonsalo Jimenez Almeida. Terence and Gonsalo will soon perform their unique brand of rock/pop music in Brazil and England in February and March 2019.
