Misha

BandRockSinger/Songwriter

I’m a singer-songwriter and I have moved through rock, jazz, world and classical music, with Prince, Led Zeppelin and Chet Baker among inspirations. Now I introduce my own deeply personal modern rock cross-over with elements of jazz, funk, latin and reggae.

Biography

Misha's style is to cross the stylistic borderlines, always in search for the new expressions. He has now melded all the experiences together into his own world, drawing the listener with the distinctive melodies, groovy rhythms and percussive and funky vocal lines.

Misha's compositions possess a unique combination of unpolished and challenging sound with catchy and beautiful melodies and humorously insightful lyrics.

Both on CD and on stage Misha provides an emotional and stimulating drive. His advanced guitar play and vocal style combining energetic jazz-rap and guitar-unison scatting à la George Benson make his pefomance very personal and original.

Lyrics

Light Your Way

Written By: Misha Sakharoff - Goran Todorovic

Somewhere in the night you lost the light
Shadows of the past grew dark and vast
Lakes lie dull and locked in frost and ice -
Sparkling, living water in disguise

Scarred by lack of luck your dreams got stuck
Sorrow kissed your eyes – you paid its price
Winter branches reach in nudity
Sharp against the sky’s infinity

:// Night falls hard
but I will stay
While you hold
the dark at bay
Dawn will bring
a brand new day
Night falls hard
but I will stay

Somewhere in the night you lost the light
Shadows of the past grew dark and vast
Lakes lie dull and locked in frost and ice -
Sparkling, living water in disguise

Leave this empty space and rise in grace
Wind will blow away the dust and gray
We might fade and dry at lowest tide
Let’s wait out the surf for waves to ride

:// Night falls hard
but I will stay
While you hold
the dark at bay
Dawn will bring
a brand new day
Night falls hard
but I will stay

In The Public Domain

Written By: Bjorn Hyldkrog

I was a normal type – like with a job and a flat
There’s no way I’d ever say that I’m all that
I mainly kept to myself – I hardly ever reached out
and I’d never had a clue what love is about
So when I met her in the gym and I caught her eye
and she came up talked to me, my mouth went dry – I’m really shy

It struck both of us; it was love at first sight –
I never knew that anything could feel so right
She didn’t waste any time – she said: I want you alone
So if you want me to be yours I’m taking you home
I’m gonna take you to my den – we can take it from there
The way you make me feel you can take me then and there – or anywhere

:// I’m in the public domain – but I’m private as pain
and I don’t care what you can see
Though making love to my girl goes out all over the world
there’s noone here but her and me – I’m in ecstasy…

I just don’t kiss and tell – I’m not that kind of guy
but what happened between us got the WorldWeb high
I didn’t know until after when she told me the tale
She said: Honey, you’re a hit and we’ve got mail
Now don’t look at me like that – this is what I do and I am
I just make my living, living all my life live on-cam – try to understand

It was take it or leave it and it took us all night
but once we’d finished talking we’d made everything right
I’m just a shy kind of guy who met a webcam girl
Now the love I hold goes out all over the world
And I really don’t care what anybody can see
cause there ain’t nobody here but my girl and me – and that’s ecstasy

:// I’m in the public domain – but I’m private as pain
and I don’t care what you can see
Though making love to my girl goes out all over the world
there’s noone here but her and me – I’m in ecstasy…

Between Duty & Beauty

Written By: Bjorn Hyldkrog

The kids are asleep
and a candle burns
I hear fantasies call
from the place on the wall
where the TV churns

I’m forty next time –
you’re just twenty-four
Though we bridged that with love
love just isn’t enough –
life claims so much more

:// I can’t lose those fifteen years –
Love, I wouldn’t want to
Though I don’t have a wife
I’ve a family life to hold on to
I’d give anything for you –
to have and to hold you
Though I know what to do
I’m still torn between duty and beauty

The gift of your smile –
the sweet love you hold
All your dreams, all your fears –
all your crazy ideas
echo through my soul

When you entered my life
all my dreams came true
All I want is to soar
but my kids need me more –
I can’t fly with you

:// I can’t lose those fifteen years –
Love, I wouldn’t want to
Though I don’t have a wife
I’ve a family life to hold on to
I’d give anything for you –
to have and to hold you
Though I know what to do
I’m still torn between duty and beauty

My heart breathes a sigh –
and I set you free
There was never a chance
for this joy and romance –
it was not to be

The kids are asleep
and the TV churns
while my dreams fade and die
from the place in my eye
where a candle burns
