about

So Far, Myles’ official US debut, is a collection of his songs over the years, re-recorded, with an easy-going, effortless sound. His smooth timbre anchors each hook-filled ditty, taking the listener from plaintive and introspective songs, to upbeat and urgent tunes, and soulful and lovelorn tales wrapped inside three minutes.

“I love the energy of the ’50s,” he said. “There’s something about that era, just before things went crazy psychedelic, it’s this great mix of being refined, but you can also feel the bubbling energy of something just about to fray a little bit, like when you watch Elvis.”

So Far managed to capture that energy, too; it’s the first time he’s recorded with a band the way he’s always wanted to.

“Jazz has always affected the way I like to hear sounds,” he said. “The record, even though it’s not jazz by any stretch, it’s made in the same way. We played live in the same room, just like they would have made a record back then. It was everybody in the same room, no headphones. It was super old school.”

Myles feels like he finally has a record that sounds like what he hears in his head when he’s writing. “For a long time I felt like “Oh, we’re a great live band,” but I just couldn’t figure out how to capture that on record,” he said.

Stripped of studio trickery, the talents of Myles and his band—guitarist Alan Jeffries and stand-up bass player Kyle Cunjak—shine through; the guitar is crisp, the timbre of Myles’ voice is clear and unvarnished.
