David Myles is a Canadian songwriter/performer/recording artist originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick. Myles lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
His music has often been labeled folk jazz, although he prefers simply to call it “roots” music. An independent artist who self-releases his albums, Myles has been able to gain an increasingly large audience, in part because of his active touring schedule and in part because of his cross-genre musical collaborations, which include a single made with the rapper Classified that became the biggest-selling rap single in the history of Canadian music.
So Far, Myles official US debut, available now, is a collection of his songs over the years, re-recorded, with an easy-going, effortless sound. His smooth timbre anchors each hook-filled ditty, taking the listener from plaintive and introspective songs, to upbeat and urgent tunes, and soulful and lovelorn tales wrapped inside three minutes.
