The Road to Success
Misha left the Soviet Union when it was cracking. Plus his personal situation. And, finally, professional motives. His life was related to rock, folk music and jazz, and the last period – with so-called experimental music. All the superstars of these genres lived and played in America – mostly in New York. He dreamed at least once to play with his American colleagues .
A real success musician can only achieve in New York. Mr Feigin was primarily interested in New York Downtown Music, a combination of rock, jazz and avant-garde, the opportunity to hang out with New York musicians. Before leaving the USSR Artemi Troitsky, a man with huge connections in the music world, had given him a list of phones in New York, so Misha immediately joined the music capital of the world. His first visit was to the famous club “Knitting Factory”. A black singer of impressive dimensions, gospel, alleluia, and then the Sikhs with sitar. Soon he met Elliott Sharp. He was like God in experimental music! And a miracle, Sharpe invites to perform with him and even make a joint recording.
New York and Louisville
He spent a year and a half hanging out in New York with almost no money and a permanent roof over his head. From time to time he performed in prestigious music clubs with famous musicians, got the right connections and recommendations. But all this was not enough for normal everyday life. In addition, New York is a very expensive city. It was necessary to look for some way out. And it was found, thanks to his friend from Kentucky Michael Kessler. Misha moved to Louisville – a pleasant town with hospitable inhabitants and cheap enough to stay, by American standards, life.
In Louisville Misha Feigin belongs to 2-3 % of American musicians who earn money by music. Now, he also gives lectures to university students and he is quite popular in his genre.
