David Myles


Supreme sonic stylist David Myles and his all-star band of players would like to take you on a journey. With That Tall Distance, Myles shakes off the chains of lyricism in favour of expansive, world-building instrumental arrangements, exploring a universe of shimmering soul, magic jazz, streetwise funk, and earthy blues. Tossed into the fray together, all of the individual timbres, vibes, and moods melt into a cohesive and stunning sonic vision. Over his career, Myles has proven himself a deft hand and keen student across genres, crafting immaculate pop melodies and timeless rock ‘n’ roll hip-swivelers. That Tall Distance throws the books out the window to pursue experimentation, creative instinct, and intense collaboration, bringing listeners the New Brunswick tunesmith’s most inventive record yet.

Like any creative endeavour, making music is a practice of dreaming things into being, and the assembling of That Tall Distance was a process of collective dreaming across space and time. While Myles himself got things started with each song, laying down the main melody and form with guitar and trumpet, the music was then passed on to each co-conspirator in the same sequence. Drummer Joshua Van Tassel would take Myles’ initial offering, seek to understand the essence of it, and then create the grooves that would give it a heartbeat. Like most drummers, he shines all over the record, but halfway through the funk odyssey of “Hawkshaw,” a deluge of percussion sets in to help the tune really blossom. Van Tassel would send things over to bassist Dean Drouillard, whose innovative bottom-end moves set the mood for the raucous, driving “Plank” and drive the whole album along.
