THE CANADIAN FOLK SINGER PERFORMS HIS ENTIRE NEW ALBUM LIVE IN STUDIO.

By Adrien Begrand, PopMatters

An award-winning folk musician in his home of Nova Scotia, David Myles releases his US debut album “So Far” today, a collection of his previous songs that have been re-recorded in stripped-down format in the tradition of 1950s folk, roots, and swing.

As a fun little way to showcase his music, he’s put together a great “live album premiere”, a playlist of he and his bandmates performing the album’s songs live in studio, which you can see (and hear) below.

“I loved making these videos,” Myles says. “This is how we operate best; live off the floor, standing really close together and doing it all at the same time. That’s how we made the record and that’s how we play live. It’s just what works for us. And I love playing that way.”
