From the Joshua Tree community in Southern Cal, KALA welcomes folk-jazz/singer songwriter Myshkin Warbler on Friday June 13 at 8pm. Myshkin performs with cellist Jenny Q. and drummer Scott Magee in a special touring music and storytelling event, TRUST.TOGETHER. Tickets $15, in advance at libertyastoria.org.
New Orleans schooled, gypsy spirited, endlessly curious, Myshkin Warbler – a rare bird among songwriters, creating darkly joyous, compellingly complex songs: literate, political, heartbreaking, soulbuilding. Her nine solo records travel though raw-folk, gypsy-swing, torchjazz, punk-poetry, desert-blues, and electronic post-rock.
In late 2013 Myshkin left Oregon for the desert to join her new love, herbalist Jenny Q, in the artists’ hideout of Joshua Tree CA, where Jenny had built her apothecary Grateful Desert.
In January of 2014, Jenny fell into septic shock. During her six days in a coma and six months in the ICU Myshkin held Jenny’s home, business and daughter, wrote spells for songs, and helped channel the community’s potent energies toward her healing. Four years later, Jenny has re-learned to walk—and dance—on prosthetic legs, and has completed Held Together, a moving, experimental book providing a raw and revealing look at her journey and community. Myshkin’s new record Trust and the High Wire, released by DoubleSalt on June 1, 2018 covers the same story in dialects of soul/jazz and indie rock.
As both projects wrapped up simultaneously, Myshkin and Jenny created Trust.Together, a live show that pulls the two works together on stage into one performance piece. Trust.Together debuted in Joshua Tree, on June 9 at Harrison House, with an eight piece band and thirteen readers, and Jenny and Myshkin are touring a potent stripped down version on the West Coast this summer. The Astoria performance features Myshkin and Jenny on guitar and cello, and longtime collaborator Scott Magee on drums.
This ruby warbler’s song commands your attention, frees your gypsy heart and soul, and lets you see the world from her own unique perspective. Myshkin is not to be missed.
