David Kushner – “Miserable Man”

Hailing from the suburbs of Chicago and now based in Florida, 21-year-old David Kushner puts his seductive tone and affinity for storytelling on display on his melancholy debut, “Miserable Man.” Shaded with gentle fingerpicked guitars and soft instrumental elements, the deeply personal single highlights Kushner’s airy baritenor and youthful energy. Since teasing the record on TikTok, Kushner has gained over 1.9m followers and 146k pre-saves for the single, as well as 130k+ for its forthcoming follow-up, “Mr. Forgettable,” in a span of two weeks. Bearing influences ranging from Bon Iver to Hozier, Kushner’s emotive sound and lyrical eloquence have positioned him for a long-lasting career.
