About David Myles

The role of the song and dance man is a noble calling. But restricting himself to only a couple creative pursuits would just not be enough for David Myles. Sure, the Maritime music maker’s song and dance mastery keeps getting more and more impressive—2017’s award-winning, vintage rock ‘n’ roll hip-swiveler Real Love and the spectacular, lush Francophone pop of 2018’s Le grand départ stand testament to that—but Myles is compelled to sally forth toward new challenges and accomplishments. Last year he released Santa Never Brings Me a Banjo, a children’s book based on his beloved modern holiday classic and dove back into the world of public radio, broadcasting his smooth baritone over Alberta’s CKUA airwaves on his show Myles From Home.  Not to mention he does it all while adhering to an unrelenting tour schedule that has seen him and comrades Kyle Cunjak (bass) and Alan Jeffries (guitar) grace stages ‘round the world. 

Check out David’s music.
