Whistler Insider Blog, Feet Banks, interviews David before the last date on his epic tour of British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
Halifax-based musician David Myles is almost unnaturally excited about his November 24, 2012, show at Whistler’s Millennium Place. The performance will mark the end of a 35-gig western tour which saw Myles knock off two sets a night while traveling with his wife and 4-month-old daughter. It all ends after the Whistler performance but rather than the chance to get back to normal domestic life (or getting out on the slopes) Myles actually seems the most stoked to enjoy another classic Whistler pursuit.

Last spring, when I was living in New York, my aunt came to visit. Though she had never been to the city before her first order of business was not visiting Times Square, Central Park or the Brooklyn Bridge. It was, instead, showing me the video for Nova Scotia singer-songwriter David Myles’ “Simple Pleasures.”
The ultimate feel-good tune about shunning extravagant desires and appreciating what you’ve got is illustrated by stop-motion photography of Myles lounging lakeside in a fedora and goofy grin.
David Myles is honoured to receive the SOCAN Award for Folk/Roots Music. Presented by SOCAN – the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada – SOCAN Awards recognize the accomplishments of Canadian songwriters in multiple genres of popular and contemporary music.
David took a short hiatus from his current tour of Saskatchewan and British Columbia to attend the 23rd Annual SOCAN Awards Gala at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto on November 19.
