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.
