Myles Sanko

Forever Dreaming

Legere

Released: 22nd September 2014 | 11 track soul album

The soul singer and songwriter based in England known as Myles Sanko released his debut Born in Black & White to broad critical and fan acclaim in 2013. Featuring seven original funk and soul tracks written and performed by Myles himself, this EP was perceived and played in the style of soul greats such as Bill Withers, Otis Redding, Al Green and James Brown, all of whom Myles openly names and proudly as his main musical influences. A stop-to-finish work of deep grooves and jazzy musical knowledge, Now Born in Black & White is followed up by Myles Sanko's first full-length album Forever Dreaming.

Dubbed as the lovechild of soul music, Myles Sanko began his music career by singing and rapping alongside disc jockeys in nightclubs. He has fronted popular bands such as Bijoumiyo, plus working with funk kings Speedometer who were touring with James Brown's 35 years soul sister Ms Martha High. My intention, writes Myles, is to produce music with a feel good vibe and lyrical content that makes my listeners think. In order to select an appropriate collection of compositions for professional recording in the studio, Myles uploaded live videos of himself giving acoustic performances to the internet. He then invited his bevy of fans throughout Europe to give their opinions regarding which tracks would best fit his debut EP release. This interactive spirit, which has guided Myles's solo career to date, reveals much about his humanist spirit, genial character, and artistic integrity.

I want my music to be a place to feel alive, says Myles Sanko. True motivation is the reaction I get from my audience when I perform, and I intend on making music that I love listening to. It's the only way to stay authentic and to not lose yourself in all the other musical influences out there. With his eight piece band Rick Hudson (drums), Neil Cowlan (guitar), Tiago Coimbra (bass), Tom O'Grady (piano/Rhodes), Neil Penny (trumpet), Matt Mckay (saxophone/flute), Tom White (trombone) amd Ric Elsworth (percussion) Myles Sanko 10 versatile compositions Myles wrote with his longtime songwriting partner Thierry Los from France. Styles are ranging from the melodic soul-jazz oft he title track Forever Dreaming through the spiritual acid jazz of Take A Look At Me Now to the energetic soul dancer Shooting Star.
