Myshkin has been touring non stop for over a decade, became an underground legend in her old home town of New Orleans, has released seven records, and been honored with awards and much critical praise. She has played clubs and festivals from London to Melbourne, and collects more fans worldwide with each gem of a record. A rare intelligence and dark humor inform her song writing, her voice is one in a million and she picks a mean guitar. Myshkin's Ruby Warblers are based in Portland, Oregon and include Sailor Banks on bass and Jesse Brooke on drums.

Beyond his established talents as a songwriter, he is a well-regarded guitarist, harmonicist, and a distinctive vocalist. His music is an informed expansion of traditional American roots music.
The Cruel Sea is a multi-ARIA Award winning 90s Australian rock/blues outfit. Originally an instrumental band focused on surf sounds, the addition of vocalist Tex Perkins (also a member of The Beasts Of Bourbon and a solo artist) proved an inspired decision.

Members of the band continue to perform, though with the exception of Perkins, most activity is fairly low key.
