A long belated hello my dear friends,

First, I should apologize for the shameful amount that has passed since my last update. Sorry about that. The good news, however, is that things are still rolling along nicely and I’m back on top of things now. I’m back in Halifax after a three week sojourn with my good friend Old Man Luedecke. We had a great time hitting cities and towns between Calgary and Victoria. Thanks so much to all the people who came out and of course all of those that help spread the word and offered a place to crash. Unbelievable. I’m a lucky man to have such good friends. The shows went really well and I’m already starting to get excited about the next trip out there.

Also I wanted to thank everyone who sent me really nice notes regrading the songwriters competition. Thank you so much. It was awesome to hear from everyone. I totally appreciate the support. It has been cool for sure, though I still haven’t heard from Mr. Waits himself or from Willie Nelson saying he wants to sing the tune for his next album. We’ll see.

In terms of recent news and stuff on the go in the next little while I had a great time playing down in Petite Riviere, NS at the firehall this past weekend. Super fun. Great crowd and I got to play with bass master Tom Easley and the guru of percussion Geoff Arsenault. These are the guys who played on my last album. They’re wicked. I don’t get the chance to play with them too much but that’s going to change as much as possible. We had a great time. Tom even came up with a name for the band, "The Expenses", "David Myles and The Expenses". Not bad eh? More shows to come with those guys for sure. In other exciting news I am doing a slew of Maritime dates in the month of June with Ottawa singer/songwriter Jim Bryson . You should check out his stuff. He’s great and his new album "Where the Bungalows Roam" is amazing. Check out the dates listed on the side to see where and when. I’m really looking forward to them. Plus I’m hosting a songwriters cirlce in Fredericton on June 22. Thought it was due time that I invite some of my favourite singer/songwriters to my dear hometown. Very exciting.

I think that is probably it for now. I hope everyone is doing well.

Thanks so much for the visit. Take care,

David
