David Myles returns to Australia



Canadian singer songwriter joins forces with Aussie duo Camille & Stuie David Myles is set to return to Australian shores in May for an extensive run of live shows to further showcase his stunning album Into The Sun, hitting the road with Independent Country Duo of The Year, Camille and Stuie, who are celebrating the release of their fourth album, Big Days & Little Years. Myles, who was one of the standout performers at last December’s Woodford Folk Festival, receiving rave reviews for his mesmerising live set and amusing anecdotes at the Festival and across his January dates, has just been awarded ‘Songwriter Of The Year’ and ‘Song Of The Year’ at the East Coast Music Awards in Moncton, Canada.

It was during his last Australian tour that Myles met Camille & Stuie, as they joined him on stage at his Brass Monkey show in Sydney. The three immediately hit it off, with Myles so taken with the acoustic powerhouse duo that he promised them a support slot on his return to Australia! On this forthcoming May – June tour, David Myles and Camille & Stuie will play to an array of local audiences, taking in three states in just under a month, starting in Tamworth and winding up in Melbourne at the Caravan Club. Over the course of his six albums, David has earned a formidable reputation for his ability to fuse musical styles, uniquely combining gentle rhythms and delicate songwriting with Brazilian and African influences. A warm, easy performer, David brings his audiences to their feet wherever he plays. His current album “Into The Sun” has been nominated for five awards at Canada’s forthcoming East Coast Music Awards, and Myles is on tour through Canada at present, honing his live show before returning to Australia!

Camille & Stuie have just released their fourth, and finest, album together, Big Days & Little Years. Recorded in Sydney and financed by fan donations, the album is a gentle look at the cycle of life and the sweet sorrow of change. The album’s tone is the calm acceptance of the passage of time. You not only hear this in the song lyrics but in Camille’s beautiful singing and in the relaxed and tight groove that their band of stellar musicians creates. Except for two songs, (Waves by Sam Baker and The First Time by Fred Koller and Danny O’Keefe) Camille and Stuie have honed their songwriting skills to tell the stories of their life – of the spirits of their ancestors and the joy of descendants. With loving respect Camille and Stuie acknowledge the importance of the unbreakable thread that is family (or “whanau” as Camille would say). The album’s lead track, ‘Beautiful Joy’ has just landed at Australian radio. David Myles with Camille and Stuie, on tour from May 18 to June 9.
