Lunchtime Live! Free Concert featuring The Marty Miles Band
With a serious nod to the 60’s folk/rock revolution and an eclectic conspiracy between acoustic and electric guitars encouraged by coltish pots-and-pans of percussion, the Marty Miles Band is simultaneously divergent and classic. Guided by the smooth vocals and lyric songwriting of front man, Marty Miles, an audience can expect a musical journey through the human condition – the question of disenchantment, the crossroads of doubt, a point of faith, a moment of whimsy, a tenuous hope.
Marty Miles is much more than your basic singer, guitarist, and songwriter type. A consummate entertainer – a modern troubadour in the purest sense – he pulls you in. The influence of artists such as Larry Norman, The Beatles, Dan Fogelberg, Ryan Adams, Mat Kearney, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Lyle Lovett, John Mellencamp and others can often be heard in his own original tunes as he musically explores the landscape of this thing called Life.
A veteran performer, Marty Miles has been an independent musician since before the term “indie” became a consumer catchword. Mondo Audio, The Eclectic Acoustic Ensemble and Aunt Melby’s Peanut Butter Jar were a few of his previous band expressions, even as he continued to sustain an ongoing schedule of solo gigs. He has had the privilege of opening shows for the likes of John Michael Talbot, Barry McGuire, Honeytree and Andrae Crouch.
Expect to hear music from his most recent CD, Folk/Rock Adventures (available on iTunes & CD Baby), as well as his other three albums, alongside his folk/rock interpretations of popular favorites from other artists.
His music has taken him all over the United States and as far away as Uganda, Africa. In March of 2008 he returned from a couple years of living and performing in Portugal. Currently Northern Indiana is home base for his busy gig schedule.
