On May 5th, closing the Hamilton Acoustic Blend Cafe season is the exceedingly talented “Miles From Nowhere“! Based in Hamilton, ON, Canada, Miles Evans-Branagh has been playing piano since the age of five. Being heavily influenced by his father, Miles has grown up playing drums, guitar, bass, and vocals, with keyboard being his base. Currently playing under the name “Miles From Nowhere”, he has been writing and performing a blend of soul, folk, and pop music for nearly a decade with the intention of offering a modern take on soul/r&b music.
At just 22 years old, “Miles From Nowhere” has been able to gather a great deal of playing experience. From playing at Hamilton Place at the age of 13, to performing as ‘Jerry Lee Lewis’ for the ‘Million Dollar Tribute’ across the province, as well as playing extensively in bars and clubs across southern Ontario, Miles has proven his versatility by gaining experience in various aspects of musical performance. Most recently with his contribution to the live house band for the ‘Anytime with Eric Johnston’ talk show as the keyboardist of ‘Rhythm Express.’ Miles has also been touring Ontario & Quebec with the Spencer MacKenzie Band, and competed with that band in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN in both 2016 & 2017.
With his debut EP set to be released in 2018, and with his first single ‘Nobody Is Everybody’, set to be released soon, fans and fellow musicians have praised his “old soul” style. Miles is excited to finally be able to share his music with the world.
You don’t want to miss the young man with an old soul. Truly a site to be seen and heard!
