After winning the hearts of Canadians with his album Turn Time Off, Singer/Songwriter David Myles has released another incredible album entitled Into the Sun. David Myles describes Turn Time Off as “more of a night time album,” but his newest album sheds light on a whole new day and a whole new style of music.
While producing songs for his new album, Myles found a common theme emerging. Many of the songs were drawing upon influences south of the equator,
The sounds of Paul Simon and Jack Johnson aren’t that far away during David Myles’ folk walk down memory lane, but that’s okay: who doesn’t like a little nostalgia every once in a while?
Besides, there’s more than just traditional folk and rock on Into the Sun, the Nova Scotia-based guitarist’s sixth album. He teams up, for the second time in his career, with Canadian hip-hop artist Classified to prove that even folk artists can transition to other genres with a simple drum machine and some classy horns.
It’s been a wild few weeks. Had a great time in the UK. Did some shows in a beautiful rural part of western England. Really great. Then after some sweet days off in London I headed up to Scotland to play at the Americana Festival in Glasgow. From there, I was homeward bound for only a couple days before hitting the road again. Off to Vancouver.
On Wednesday, I flew out west with my good friend Classified and his crew to play at an event called WeDay.
