David Myles Live at The Carleton

New album released April 16

Hi everyone,

This is just a quick note to let you know I’ve got a new record coming out on April 16th!! That’s right, a live record! I love playing live and have always felt that the live show represents a significant part of what I do that can’t be captured in a studio recording. The stories, the interaction with the crowd, the added excitement of playing a song in front of an audience is all part of what I love about being a performer. I’m happy to say that I think it’s all here on this recording. It’s called “Live At The Carleton” and comes from a run of four consecutive shows that I did with my trio (Alan Jeffries and Kyle Cunjak) back in December, at the Carleton Bar in Halifax. When we were doing the shows, we had no idea they were being recorded. However, at the end of the four nights, Jonathan Cornwall, the Carleton’s sound man, handed me a memory stick and said “here you go, I recorded all four shows!”. Beautiful. What better way to make a live record. No chance to over think things or get extra nervous just cause we knew it was being recorded. We didn’t. We just played, had a blast and, as the sweet result of Jonathan secretly pressing record, have a live record that I’m really excited about. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks so much for your support.
