The Swift Cur­rent Al­lied Arts Coun­cil is pleased that Cana­dian singer-song­writer David Myles will be the sec­ond per­for­mance for the 2012–2013 sea­son of Stars for Saskatchew­an on Nov. 2.

From Sydney, Aus­tralia to Sydney, Nova Sco­tia, mul­ti­ple-award win­ner David Myles is bring­ing au­di­ences to their feet with his spir­ited songs, flaw­less mu­si­cian­ship, and his warm and en­gag­ing stage show.

Al­ready known for his ver­sa­til­ity and abil­ity to fuse styles, Myles’ fifth stu­dio record­ing, takes us on a ex­hil­a­rat­ing mu­si­cal ad­ven­ture that ex­plores his long-time love of Brazil­ian and African mu­sic with in­flu­ences as ob­vi­ous to pop au­di­ences as Paul Si­mon and as ob­scure as Brazil­ian icon Jorge Ben. A born col­lab­o­ra­tor, Into the Sun fea­tures Myles’ sec­ond a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Cana­dian hip-hop star, Clas­si­fied. Their first col­lab­o­ra­tion went on to be­come a sin­gle from Clas­si­fied’s lat­est record

On the other end of the mu­si­cal spec­trum, Myles has just writ­ten and per­formed with in­ter­na­tional opera star Measha Brueg­ger­gos­man for her up­com­ing re­lease.

Myles’ sur­pris­ing and in­tri­cate song­writ­ing has gar­nered him wins in the In­ter­na­tional Song­writ­ing Con­test and the East Coast Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion Awards, song place­ments in film and tele­vi­sion, and a place on CBC’s Great Cana­dian Songquest.

A Fredericto­n, N.B. na­tive liv­ing in Hal­i­fax, N.S., Myles has toured in Canada, U.S., Ire­land/U.K., Europe and Aus­tralia. In­creas­ingly in de­mand in theatres and at fes­ti­vals, his un­abashed joy at be­ing on stage is in­fec­tious. His en­thu­si­asm, along with his ten­dency to en­ter­tain au­di­ences with his hu­mourous anec­dotes, wins him fans in­stantly.

Myles kicked off his 10 date Saskatchew­an tour in Shau­navon on Oct. 22.

Myles ends his 17-date Saskatchew­an tour in Swift Cur­rent, but the tal­ented per­former was also in the South­west for con­certs in Leader on Oct. 15 and Shau­navon on Oct. 22.

Be sure to catch David Myles on Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. at the Sky Cen­tre. A lim­ited num­ber of tick­ets for re­served seat­ing are still avail­able.
