On David Myles...

"Myles played with a blues band in a Chinese soccer stadium. The show was televised to millions of people. Back in Canada, he opened for west-coast rap group The Rascalz as a beat-boxer. This year he played trumpet on recent but unreleased Buck 65 recordings. Add to that a well-received debut album, Together and Alone, and youve got a man whose appetite for music is insatiable. Myles new album, Things Have Changed departs from the traditional definition of roots music. Co-produced with Charles Austin (Joel Plaskett, Matt Mays, Buck 65), Things Have Changed features horns reminiscent of Al Greens soul music, Mississippi John Hurt-style finger-picking, and smooth vocals that fall somewhere between Chet Baker and Paul Simon. Myles has opted for the full band treatment of his songs with horns, pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, piano, Wurlitzer organ, guitar, upright bass and drums. Things Have Changed features some of Atlantic Canadas finest musicians. Jill Barber, Dale Murray (Cuff the Duke, Buck 65, Nathan Wiley), Matt Murphy (Flashing Lights, Superfriendz), Gabe Minnikin (The Guthries), Tom Easley (Hot Toddy), Geoff Arsenault (Ray Bonneville, Carlos Del Junco), and others join forces to create an album reminiscent of early Ry Cooder, Tom Waits and J.J. Cale."


On Jenn Grant...

Jenn is now working on her first full length that she has been invited to record with the CBC. "ORCHESTRA FOR THE MOON" (produced by Jason MacIsaac and David Christensen of the heavy blinkers) features such notable guests as Ron Sexsmith, Jill Barber, Matt Mays, Tyler Messick, Dale Murray, and Rose Cousins. Grant has been touring in Europe the past 2 years as a solo artist and occasionally for the pop orchestrial band the Heavy Blinkers. In the past year she has played the Toronto Film Festival, SXSW, CMW, HPX and POP Komm. Grant was also fortunate enough to be asked to open for Feist, Ron Sexsmith and Josh Ritter among others, in intimate vunes, in her recent career. Most recently, Jenn completed a three week tour of Germany, and is currently touring throughout Canada, while organizing shows to support her upcoming releasen in 2007.
