The Maine Edge: David Myles and his band to perform in Bangor, August 11

August 7, 2018

“…one of the most impressive records I’ve heard by any artist this year.” -The Maine Edge

Earlier this year, The Maine Edge featured a cover story about Juno Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician David Myles, bearing the headline: ‘He’s Hot. He’s Sexy. He’s Canadian.’

My variation on the title of an infamous late ‘70s Rolling Stone cover story about Doors lead singer Jim Morrison was designed to be an attention grabber. I had hoped that readers unfamiliar with Myles and his music would be intrigued enough to check out his latest release – “Real Love” – one of the most impressive records I’ve heard by any artist this year. And based on the volume of related comments and messages subsequently received from Maine Edge readers, you were and you did.

“I can tell you that title was a big hit north of the border too,” Myles told me with a laugh during a phone interview.

Relaxing at his home in Halifax during a brief break in a very busy international tour, Myles and his band are looking ahead to their first-ever concert in Bangor, scheduled for Saturday, August 11, in the ballroom of the Bangor Arts Exchange, 193 Exchange St.

Myles’s trio includes guitarist Alan Jeffries and stand-up bassist Kyle Cunjak. The musicians still have dozens of dates on the itinerary for this year, including shows in Rumford, Ridgefield, CT., three appearances at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and concerts from Calgary to California.
