Chart-topper David Myles live in Skagway this Saturday
On Saturday, October 26, the Arts Council will be presenting the David Myles Trio in concert at 7 p.m. at the AB Hall. David is a songwriter/performer/recording artist from Halifax, Nova Scotia whose music has often been labeled folk jazz.
Somewhere on the spectrum between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake, David Myles has truly forged his own path by embracing modern and vintage pop, folk, soul music and rap.
David Myles has had an incredible year. "Inner Ninja" the single he released with Halifax Hip Hop artist Classified is officially the number one selling rap recording of all time in Canada, David took home a JUNO for Rap Recording of the year, and is charting internationally. In May, David released his new record "In the Nighttime", and the second single from the record, "So Blind", blindsided the group Arcade Fire two weeks ago and took their number 1 spot on the CBC Radio 2 Top 20. Here is a link to David's EPK: http://marcatoapp.com/artists/274/epk, where you can read the latest bio, and download the record.
Myles has earned a reputation as a great showman, and his flawless musicianship and unforgettable stories have made him a favorite with fans everywhere. Admission will be $12/adults; $8/seniors; $2 discount for Skagway Arts Council members.
