RANDY MILES

RANDY MILES

BandAmericanaSinger/Songwriter

Randy Miles performs with a mix of subtlety and abandon. His distinctive guitar style is often equated to Pete Townshend--driving, percussive, and full of rhythm. Dripping with emotion, all agree, Randy Miles is the real deal--an original.

Biography

My songs are songs of the human condition. I am a songwriter, vocal stylist, and poet who can bring a smile to your face or a tear to your eye... sometimes both at the same time.

Fusing the twang of juke joint country, the sensibility of roots rock de-jour, and the jazzy zeal of spontaneous combustion, I try to create a music that knows no boundaries. Whatever the style, I like melody. My songs combine timeless themes of romance (the good, the bad, and the ugly) with an eclectic mix of genre to create a sound that is my own. My talent has allowed me to quickly gain critical acclaim and international acceptance with three top forty country ECMA hits, a top 10 on the European CMA charts, and a top 10 independent country release in the USA. Other artists have liked my songs and my work has been recorded by Gary Cooper; Snake Eyes; The Shack Shakers; Robin Deeter, The Queen Of Western Swing; and Phil Hanna. My songs have also been on various compilation CDs from Folk to Country to Rockabilly.

See me live... you’ll be glad you did. There' a surprise around every corner.
