Mishkin Fitzgerald is best known for her role as lead singer and pianist in the British ‘orchestral punk-rock’ band, Birdeatsbaby. Solo she plays darkly tinged pianos ballads and weird alt-pop tunes.
Influenced heavily by classical piano music, and alternative artists such as Nick Cave, Patti Smith and Regina Spektor, Mishkin’s sound is distinctive, fragile and unapologetic.
The album Present Company was produced by multi-instrumentalist Forbes Coleman (Stereophonics, Claire Maguire), and has been played on BBC Introducing London/Sussex and hailed by Simon Price (Independent, Guardian, Q) as ‘stunning… frighteningly talented’.
