Myles is originally from Williamsport, PA and is a recent graduate of Belmont Curb College of Music Business. She went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA for her freshman year, then the urging of Clay Bradley, the former VP of Sony’s A & R Division, transferred to Belmont where she earned her degree.
Now a resident of Nashville, Tennessee, Morgan Myles is an amazing talent who performs a blend of country and soul music. She writes songs about anything that seems to her affect her life in a very raw manner that listeners can truly relate to. It was her first guitar teacher recognizing her retro soulful sound who exposed her to the late 60’s and early 70’s that has made Myles show so unique for her time.
Myles completed her first solo record in 2009, writing every song and promoting it throughout Europe. Also gaining community attention she began writing with many successful songwriters. Soon after she decided to strengthen her performance abilities by touring with Crystal Shawanda, CCMA’s 2009 best female artist, along with opening for Reba McEntire, and playing at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. However, her most eye-opening moment was performing for US troops departing for Iraq at Camp Shelby Mississippi where she rediscovered the power of music.
Having wrapped her tour, Bmi’s Mark Mason took a great interest in Myles career saying, “Myles is rare in the sense of being the true trifecta combining songwriting, singing and musical performance.” She was featured in the Key West Songwriter’s festivals, BMI Buzz showcases, as well as BMI Presents. Soon after she was offered a unique opportunity to record an alternative-rock project at Blackbird Studios with the legendary Vance Powell. Myles learned quickly that this type of production complimented her voice and she went on to record and produce her own self-titled EP in 2013.
In March of 2014, Myles was the featured performer singing ten of her original songs at the historical Community Arts Center with the Pennsylvania Symphony Orchestra in PA. Her song, “Chains” was featured in the documentary, “Music City USA”. She was also given the opportunity to perform her song, “Wicked” in the upcoming feature film, “The Dust Storm.” Myles has been represented by Brad Paisley and Band Perry’s booking agent, Rob Beckham at WME. Beckham being truly a fan has said, “What do you get when you combine Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, and Faith Hill…you get Morgan Myles.” Beckham has been steadily booking Myles for a year now and has opened for acts like Hank Williams Jr., Rick Springfield, and the biggest country music festivals around the US featuring acts like Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and Blake Shelton.
Over a year ago Sony A&R, Duane Hobson, took a big interest in Myles and introduced her to Rio who produced and co-wrote her upcoming EP due out in January 2016. Hobson discovering her talent has said, “The blend of country roots with the soulful vocals of Morgan Myles makes this a unique album. I’m excited to share this music with fans – it’s a refreshing combination of elements that is on the forefront of the next big sound.” Recently this past September, Myles had a first listen EP Party and received great reviews from the industry including Music Row Magazine, Taste of Country, as well as CMT who has decided to do an exclusive premiere of her new music video, “Whiskey Dreaming.” The future is bright for this belting powerhouse so follow her on her socials and join us on this journey together!
