Review – Turn Time Off, Earshot

Turn Time Off is a well blended disc that portrays an artist baring his soul on songs that seamlessly and effortlessly tie album together. This fourth album by David Myles is a definite addition to any record collection.

The noticeable thumbprint from the watchful and highly acclaimed ears and eyes of Producer Joel Plaskett has added a nice sense of flavour to this ever flourishing artist.

It was very hard for me to take this cd out of the tray as the captivating, heartfelt songs that accompany Myles unforgettable vocals leave a very impressionable and positive imprint on your mind. “Out of Love” and “People Don’t Change” are the first two tracks up on the album that reel the listener in to the rest of the cd’s musical journey.

It is no wonder that this gifted and talented singer/songwriter is beginning to have a list of awards and accolades to his credit. David was a winner in the 2009 International Songwriting Competition, his last album On The Line won Folk Recording of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards where he was also nominated as Male Artist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. Myles also won the Folk/Roots Recording of the Year for Music Nova Scotia in 2007.

This fan favourite lights up a room where ever he performs leaving the audience only wanting more. In between songs his stage presence steps out reaching into the audience with his infectious joy, enthusiasm and love for his craft which quite noticeably shines through on every song on Turn Time Off.

Obviously he is doing something right and may be one of the Nova Scotia’s best kept secrets but only until the rest of Canada and the world catch on, then his career will soar to unimaginable heights.
