One of Canada's most highly regarded singer-songwriters.
David Myles' unabashed joy at being on stage is infectious. His enthusiasm, along with his ability to entertain audiences with his humorous anecdotes, wins him fans instantly.

Hailing from Fredericton, New Brunswick, and currently residing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Myles has taken the Canadian music scene by storm.

Like his trademark suit, Myles' music is timeless. Regardless of quickly passing trends and fads, it will persevere. From soulful, contemporary pop crooners to delicate, jazzy folk ditties, and down-home, back porch roots tunes to infectious hip-hop earworms, his only artistic constants are his always growing, shape shifting songwriting, and his exceptional ability to entertain. His surprising and intricate songwriting has garnered him wins in the International Songwriting Contest, song placements in film and television, and a place on CBC's Great Canadian Song Quest.

"One of Atlantic Canada's most highly regarded singer-songwriters." - The Guardian (PEI)

Song Samples: Run Away"
Through their rich but rustic sound, Toronto roots-rock outfit The Young Novelists deliver a dose of honesty in audible form.

What first began as a stack of songs that frontman Graydon James had amassed behind the drum kit in various bands during his university years eventually became a collection of recordings performed by the six-piece band, Graydon James & The Young Novelists. But over time, as James' wife Laura Spink became integral to the creative process and the band began performing and touring as a duo, the more succinct banner of The Young Novelists was born.

Now, with their second CD, made us strangers, the band showcases a significant sonic progression. Ripe with raw but elegant instrumentation and stacked multi-layered harmonies, their pure take on folk-tinged rock translates equally well from the stereo or stage.

"Like the Decemberists but rockier and less quirky, like Americana but quirkier and rockier, a talented Toronto outfit." ~ rock nyc
