David Myles


Label: Independent
from Halifax Nova Scotia

Singer-songwriter David Myles' second full-length album, "Things Have Changed", is the latest in a long line of musical achievements.

At age eleven, he was a finalist in the Connaught Street School lip synch contest for his version of "Heartbreak Hotel". Ten years later, Myles played with a blues band in a Chinese soccer stadium. The show was televised to millions of people. Back in Canada, he opened for west-coast rap group "The Rascalz" as a beat-boxer. This year he played trumpet on recent but unreleased Buck 65 recordings.

Add to that a well-received debut album, "Together and Alone", and you've got a man whose appetite for music is insatiable.

Myles' new album, "Things Have Changed" departs from the traditional definition of roots music. Co-produced with Charles Austin (Joel Plaskett, Matt Mays, Buck 65), "Things Have Changed" features horns reminiscent of Al Green's soul music, Mississippi John Hurt-style finger-picking, and rich vocals that fall somewhere between Chet Baker and Paul Simon.

Myles has opted for the "full band" treatment of his songs with horns, pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, piano, Wurlitzer organ, guitar, upright bass and drums. "Things Have Changed" features some of Atlantic Canada's finest musicians. Jill Barber, Dale Murray (Cuff the Duke, Buck 65, Nathan Wiley), Matt Murphy (Flashing Lights, Superfriendz), Gabe Minnikin (The Guthries), Tom Easley (Hot Toddy), Geoff Arsenault (Ray Bonneville, Carlos Del Junco), and others join forces to create an album reminiscent of early Ry Cooder, Tom Waits and J.J. Cale.
