David Myles

Date: July 7, 2011

I was at the First Canadian Place “Summer Beat the Heat Event” when I first heard Fredericton born David Myles. My colleague and I had been attending these events all summer, normally at the Waterfall Stage but this time sadly for David Myles it was in a small gallery room where the view was blocked by new construction in the building.

Sitting on a stool with his guitar in hand and a fellow guitarist, David Myles started with a joke, several jokes in fact. His light humour about himself and his experiences set the tone and mood for his performance. I was not expecting to like folk music but his upbeat music about living out East and his love song for his wife made me warm to the idea of folk music. Behind the genre of music were well written lyrics, and a voice that made me feel at home and calm by allowing me to forget about the busy work life that is Toronto. Between songs, I felt like I was at a comedy show where I was left wanting more. After the live show, I turned to my colleague saying, “It was a shame he performed in this room because a great performer such as David Myles deserved to be seen on a larger stage.”
