With his new album, Into the Sun, David Myles whisks us away on an exhilarating musical adventure that explores his long-time love of Brazilian and African music. Already known for his versatility and ability to fuse styles, David takes us further afield with this record by introducing rhythms and instrumentation most often reserved for world music audiences. The result is a sound that is uniquely David Myles. With influences as obvious to pop audiences as Paul Simon and as obscure as Brazilian icon Jorge Ben, David is the ideal tour guide. The surprising and intricate songwriting is framed by carefully constructed arrangements, soaring harmonies and flawless musicianship. At the heart of it all, is the songwriting that has made David a favourite with audiences and critics alike. A gifted and spirited writer, David often co-writes and collaborates with artists from across many genres. "Simple Pleasures" is his second collaboration with Canadian hip hop star, Classified. The Myles penned, Classified produced "Simple Pleasures" is a follow-up to a collaboration that started with Classified's own single "The Day Doesn't Die" - a co-write that features David's vocals. Into the Sun is David's fifth studio recording and his sixth album. Co-produced with Charles Austin and Graeme Campbell in Halifax, Into the Sun is an exuberant follow-up to the award-winning Turn Time Off, and takes us a little deeper in to the wonderful world of David Myles.
