Meet David Myles
Canada is always supplying the world with amazing musical talent. Living on the border, I get to hear Canadian radio, which always supports Canadian artists.
In Canada, the rap scene is dominated by a white rapper from The Maritimes. His given name is Luke Boyd, but he goes by the name “Classified.” He’s awesome. And he’s paired up with a guy named David Myles for a huge hit song, “Inner Ninja,” which I love – it’s ear candy.
Honestly, when I first heard “Inner Ninja” on Buffalo’s Kiss 98.5FM, I thought it was two black men, and I thought the crooner doing the singing was a large black man. Then I finally saw the video, online, and the guy singing was a pencil-thin, glasses-wearing white guy, from Canada!?! WHAT?!?! Yeah, it’s true. And ladies and gentlemen, this David Myles guy is all around awesome, musically-speaking. He is like Buddy Holly, Jack Johnson, Harry Connick, Jr., Lionel Richie, Barenaked Ladies, James Taylor, Jamie Cullum and Cee-Lo Green in one person. I think he’s going to make it into my musical top 10, folks!
Espace.mu Review – A double album and a duo
You might say he is a bit Jack Johnson. A light melody on the beach with a surf board not far away. Others will find his style oscillates between James Taylor and Paul Simon. His choruses have a humour and a tenderness of a gentle story teller, often acoustic, relaxed, accompanied by a simple guitar and double bass. All of this should give you a small idea of David Myles. But this slender singer who comes to us directly from Fredericton, launches a new double album recorded in Nova Scotia, and which includes the participation of hip-hop producer Classified. It’s as though everything happens for the best, because the doo-wop sounds of the first album produced by Aaron Davis (the pianist from the Holy Cole Trio) find their ideal counterpart in the urban feel of the second album, purposely christened The After Party.
