The 1950’s. A decade that produced some of the best songs of rock ‘n roll, country music and of course rockabilly. Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, Hank Williams – the list goes on. And if that decade were to re-introduce itself, it would come in the form of David Myles. The fever of the 50’s is alive and well in Myles (including his amazing fashion sense),
“The songs are the most important thing for me. It’s important that people don’t just hear this album as a throwback record. I want them to hear it as new songs in this world.” – David Myles, on his latest album “Real Love”
Nova Scotia-based singer and songwriter David Myles has a hard time sitting still.
The music-obsessed JUNO award-winning father of two admits that if he hadn’t taken time out for this interview with The Maine Edge,
A-t-il fallu dix secondes ? Disons vingt. Le rythme galopant, moitié rockabilly supersonique, moitié « jungle beat » des orchestres jazz des années 1940 s’empare du corps et hop ! On est debout, on danse. L’ordi dans le bureau, impassible, attend que la frénésie passe. Mais ça dure. Tout le long de Night and Day, la chanson qui lance l’album Real Love de David Myles.
