Internationally renowned roots reggae artist Mishka, the face of surf-clothing giant O’Neill’s new eco-friendly apparel line ECO’Neill, is set to tour this February with full band, in support of current jk livin release Talk About. The highly prolific singer-songwriter last toured solo and acoustic, including Hard Rock pre-party performance dates attached to Kenny Chesney’s “Goin’ Coastal Tour 2011” last summer. Talk About, which was co-produced by Butch Walker (Pink, Fall Out Boy) and label head Matthew McConaughey, debuted #1 on the iTunes Reggae Chart and is outside-the-box of traditional Roots-Reggae, adding a mainstream Rock influence. It marks Mishka’s fourth album to date and his second for jk livin. He is currently working on his next studio album. The Maui-based artist, who spent most of his early life on a boat in the Caribbean sailing the islands with his seafaring parents and older sisters, is widely noted for his spiritually conscious music and powerful yet genuine performance. It was inevitable that he’d be drawn to Reggae, Rastafari, and the natural mystic that inhabit his music and soul.

Jeff LeBlanc is using his college degree a little differently than he first envisioned. His immediately familiar-sounding blend of pop and acoustic rock quickly took him from dorm room concerts at Sacred Heart University to a 60-date tour of colleges across the country, where he was praised as everything from "the new John Mayer" to an artist "perfectly in tune with his audience." His new album, "Worth Holding On To", was self-released on August 23rd, 2011 and quickly rose to #3 on the iTunes Top 200 Singer/Songwriter Chart. He's become a staple on the Sirius/XM Coffee House channel, even grabbing a nomination for their "Singer/Songwriter Discovery of 2011". Jeff's recently toured with the likes of the Goo Goo Dolls, Ingrid Michaelson, Matt Nathanson, Brett Dennen, David Archuleta and many more.
