PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY OF IT’S CHRISTMAS
Here it is, my friends, my Christmas record! I know it’s summertime, but I couldn’t wait any longer. I am so excited to share this with you. You see, I’ve always wanted to do a Christmas record but I wanted to wait ’til I felt like I had some great original songs, had found some cool lesser-known Christmas songs, and had developed a unique way of singing and playing a few of the classics. I’m really proud of this record and I think you’re really going to dig it. Plus, we’re doing vinyl for the first time. White vinyl! Please check out the first track and pass the link along. If you pre-order a copy of the CD or vinyl you get a pack of sweet David Myles Christmas cards. And, for every record sold, we will be making a donation to Canada’s Food Banks. I hope you like it!
Thanks so much,
A whirlwind summer!
It’s a whirlwind summer for David, with interviews and shows across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Québec!
Check out David’s interview and “One in a Million” performance on Radio 96-5 with hosts Neil and Chelsea (thanks for the great photo guys!).

Ready to rock at “hometown” party
Classified, who was born as Luke Boyd, said it was a decade ago.
“I opened for Choclair at Chevy’s about 10 years ago and I haven’t been back since. I’m just really excited to be in Truro again,” said the hiphop artist who is kicking off the Town of Truro’s Canada Day celebrations with a performance on June 30 at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre.
“I’m really looking forward to playing at the centre, I’ve heard a lot about it.”
During the Monday night performance, both David Myles and Classified’s younger brother, Mike Boyd, will be joining him on the stage.
The performance begins at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.. Tickets are available at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre on Abenaki Road or online at ticketpro.ca, any ticketpro outlet or by phone at 1-888-311-9090.
