Jimmy Buffett helps out reggae artist who once brought him coffee & croissants
Jimmy Buffett must have the memory of an elephant – to go along with his huge philanthropic heart. When he plays Texas – and he always plays Texas – he thanks the audience for keeping him alive when he was just a kid, trying to eke out a living playing the coffee house circuit and bars up and down Greenville Avenue in Dallas.
Mishka was born in Bermuda and raised in the Caribbean. His new EP, Ocean Is My Potion, on Jimmy Buffett’s Mailboat Records, just debuted at #1 on the Soundscan Reggae Chart.
The musician and young Mishka formed a fast bond, and Jimmy wrote and recorded a song about him called, “Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants” which translates to, “Song For Little Children.”
