Caleb Miles - Linda Brooks - Atlantic Airwaves for Saturday May 26, 2012
On this Saturdays' edition of the program - A concert from Caleb Miles - and a feature Linda Brooks and her recent release The Upside
Caleb Miles is a guy who doesn't let the grass grow under his feet - His musical journey began 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 - From there his path led to places as far-flung as Detroit Michigan, Athens Georgia, Lexington Kentucky, Portland Oregon as well as countless forgettable dives in between - In 2005 Caleb moved to Nova Scotia expecting to surrender to a rural solitude and an early retirement from the stage - Instead, he found a rich and rocking community of musicians, songwriters, performers and listeners with whom to share his ongoing musical adventures.
Last March we invited him to take part in an evening of music we were presenting along with the Deep Roots Co-Operative at the Al Whittle Theater in Wolfville Nova Scotia.

The past year has been a busy one for Linda Brooks - writing, traveling and recording - Last October, she journeyed to California to shoot a video for her holiday song, 'This Christmas', which received radio play across Canada during the holiday season - She then packed her bags for Nashville where she hooked up with Chris Leuzinger, best known as guitarist on all of Garth Brooks' albums, to produce her new album 'The Upside' - The first single 'Now That You're Here' debuted on the top 10 indie downloads on DMDS and is currently being played on over 25 stations coast to coast - In addition to her musical successes, Brooks is also an actor and has recently appeared on CBC's hit comedy Mr. D and will appear in the upcoming feature film, 'Guys Who Move Furniture', starring Will Sasso, Charlie Murphy, and Victor Garber.
