Album Notes
David Myles

On The Line

The title speaks volumes. David Myles is a fresh force on the Canadian entertainment landscape who has dared to put it all on the line with this independent release ... creativity, vocal versatility and musical dexterity. The cd is a powerful and stylish blend of jazz, blues, gospel, pop and folk influences. His trademark enthusiasm and likeability shine through on this disk.

David’s lyrics walk you through the human experiences of desire, loss and hope. They reveal vulnerability, determination, humour and strength, and provide an unflinching look into our common need for love and a feeling of home. The first track on the cd, “I Don’t Want to Know,” hooks you at the opening riff and you’re humming along by the end of the first line. You understand it because you feel it. In the soulful request to “Not Be Afraid,” David issues a seductive invitation to be open to every emotion. He challenges you to escape to a better future in “Cape Breton” and makes a moody plea for change in “When Will We Learn.” “On The Line” is a throwback to the sophisticated and world-weary blues sensibilities of early Bourbon Street. The thread of risk ties it all together as you dare to name what will feed your soul and then pursue it.

David is fearless in his arrangements – from Hammond Organ to double bass to an outstanding horn section – he enjoys an acoustic palate that marries rich and elegant with animated and imaginative. In live shows he serves it up with the energy of a demon, and audiences immediately open up to his honest and passionate delivery. David is a young man but he has old-soul wisdom that connects him with people on the most fundamental level.

David’s last release, “Things Have Changed,” exposed him to new national and international audiences and earned him industry recognition in the form of two Music Nova Scotia Awards, and nominations for both the 2007 Canadian Folk Music Best New Artist Award and the ECMA Galaxie Rising Star Recording of the Year. Compelling and laconically comical, “When It Comes My Turn” won first place in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition in the folk singer/songwriter category and has become a standout favourite with audiences.

From small house concerts to major festivals and national/international showcase events, demand for David is growing across Canada and the US. Initial audience and industry reaction to his newest release is enthusiastic and embracing … a fitting pay-off for putting it all on the line.

pretty ok
I like it. I don\'t like it as much as \"Things Have Changed\", but maybe my opinion will change once I listen to it more.
