Caleb Miles cut his musical teeth under the blazing sun of New Mexico's high desert, playing lead guitar in original rock'n'roll bands throughout the 1980s and early 90s. He joined The Illegal Aliens at the age of fifteen and continued his musical apprenticeship in bands such as Sundog, F.O.R., and A Murder Of Crows. Albuquerque at that time offered little reward for the aspiring musician, but it did foster hard-edged determination, strength of purpose, an outlaw sense of community, and an appreciation for sweaty bodies writhing in dance-induced ecstasy. His guitar sound is shaped by his desert days: sharp, clear, and dry like the sage-scented air. Lawless like the Old West. In 2005 he moved to Nova Scotia expecting to surrender to rural solitude and an early retirement from the stage. He has found instead a rich and rocking community of musicians, songwriters, performers and listeners with whom to share his ongoing musical adventures. In 2006 he recorded BRICKYARD ROAD, a rootsy assemblage of spare parts and previously unfinished tunes that served as an introduction to his new audience. In 2008 he released MEMORY WELL, featuring twelve new songs graced by contributions from several talented local friends. His latest recording, Strange Weather, is entirely a one man creation, from the production to the recording to playing all the instruments.
