Canadian singer-songwriter David Myles brings his timeless music and diverse talent to Diana Wortham Theatre in concert on Friday, May 18, at 8 p.m. Myles and his band—guitarist Alan Jeffries and stand-up bass player Kyle Cunjak—will perform tunes with elements of everything from contemporary pop to folk and roots music to hip-hop in an energetic show with a down-to-earth, humorous vibe.
“I’ve never shied away from being an entertainer,” says Myles.
Who is David Myles? He’s anything he wants to be, living his music career moment-by-moment.
He’s everything from James Taylor to Justin Timberlake — and, lately, he’s thrown some Roy Orbison into the mix. (Myles plays a show May 18 at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville; scroll to the bottom of this story for details.)
It’s hard to pinpoint Myles’ music and even harder to narrow it down to a single genre.
David Myles frequents the same tailor as Buddy Holly and—thankfully—the same muse, but he’s cheating on that muse with the muse of folk-jazz, whoever that is. With catchy, throbbing, simple-but-not-boring and dance-able songs, Myles covers all the important bases in songwriting and performance.
Most of the CD is upbeat, with the unabashed rockabilly opener “Night & Day” seguing to “Real Love,” a tune that might have come from Roy Orbison’s songbook.

Myles is an Americana artist, combining elements of rock and roll,
