David Myles

From Australia to Nova Scotia, multiple-award winner David Myles is bringing audiences to their feet with his spirited songs, flawless musicianship, and his warm and engaging stage show. Already known for his versatility and ability to fuse styles, Myles' fifth studio recording, Into the Sun, takes us on an exhilarating musical adventure that explores his long-time love of Brazilian and African music. Myles' surprising and intricate songwriting has garnered him wins in the International Songwriting Contest, song placements in film and television, and a place on CBC's Great Canadian Songquest. Myles is joined by bassist Kyle Cunjak and guitarist Alan Jeffries in this exhilarating night of music.





DAVID MYLES
The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents David Myles on November 15th 2012 at 8:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre.

Featured on Stuart McLean's Vinyl Café, Canadian Folk and Jazz singer/songwriter David Myles and his band will bring audiences to their feet with their spirited songs, flawless musicianship, and warm and engaging stage show. "I've been obsessed with music since I was a little kid." says Myles, who cites Ray Charles and Myles Davis as major influences, "It was a big part of my family. We had two pianos in the house, and my dad directed musicals at the high school."

Already known for his versatile repertoire and ability to fuse styles, Myles' fifth studio recording Into the Sun takes us on an exhilarating music adventure that explores his long-time love of Brazilian and African music. A born collaborator, Myles has worked with artists from all corners of the musical spectrum including Canadian hip-hop star Classified and international opera sensation Measha Brueggergosman.

David Myles' band features Kyle Cunjak on upright bass and Alan Jeffries on guitar. "It's contemporary folk music in maybe the same vein as Paul Simon or James Taylor" explains Myles, "There's also a heavy soul and R&B influence."

Myles' surprising and intricate songwriting has garnered him wins in the International Songwriting Contest, song placements in film and television, and a place on CBC's Great Canadian Songquest.

Myles' unabashed joy at being on stage is infectious. His enthusiasm, along with his tendency to entertain audiences with his humourous anecdotes, wins him fans instantly.

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous support: Advertising Works, Sandman Inn, the Vernon Morning Star, North of 50 Magazine, the Okanagan Advertiser, the Vernon Film Society, the Department of Canadian Heritage, and the British Columbia Arts Council.
