Nattily dressed in a suit and tie, wearing his trademark specs, he looks like Buddy Holly transposed to an after-hours supper club. But Myles’s music conveys a populist appeal that leaves no one lacking. – No Depression

About David Myles:
Rock ’n’ roll’s diverse, electrifying roots dig deep into David Myles’ tenth album, Real Love. You can hear them in the old-school Johnny Cash shuffle and lightning-in-a-bottle twang of “Night And Day.” They pull you by the hand and dance slowly to the swingy drums and ‘50s-era, Roy Orbison croon of “Easy.” With the rousing orchestral thrill of “Night After Night,” they sprawl out into simmering soul as Myles seethes at a lover who’s been running around with another. Over Real Love’s 13 tracks, written as razor-sharp as Myles’ signature suits, those roots grow into a spectacular family tree of American musical tradition—with all its blood, sweat, and tears—that’s as endlessly entertaining as it is riveting.
When you hear the shuffling hip-swivel of “Cry, Cry, Cry,” it’s clear Real Love is the album Myles was built to write. Since before competing in a lip-sync contest at seven-years-old by faux-belting “Heartbreak Hotel,” he’s been honing his skills, learning his way around the clash of country and R&B Elvis shook the world with in 1956. Real Love’s tendency to mix lush arrangements and danceable rhythms with timeless rock ’n’ roll structures has led some early listeners to dub the album’s vibrant sound “Elvis in Motown.” It’s easy to see why on the tambourine dance floor dream of the title track or the soulful, lonesome balladry of “Crazy To Leave,” a tune that re-confirms the magnetic Myles’ status as an unrivalled romantic.
All this new music injected with rhythm and groove will certainly be shakin’ up Myles’ already enthralling live performances. Even more toe-tapping, more head-nodding, and yes—more hip-swivelling—is coming to the David Myles Road Show with Real Love added to the band’s repertoire. It was written to achieve maximum entertainment, and the gorgeous three-part harmonies of “Dreaming” or the deliriously giddy bounce of “Everybody Knows” will be flooring crowds across the country this year and beyond. Real Love is an absorbing rejuvenation of rock ’n’ roll’s dramatic power—it will make you dance, weep, and never forget where you were the first time you felt it. That’s how you know love is real, after all.

FLION BEAR FOX ANNOUNCE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM TO BE RELEASED ON FEBRUARY 17
LISTEN TO THE FIRST SINGLE BATTLE OF ME
ON TOUR IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH
Toronto, ON – December xx, 2016 – Vancouver’s Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative and unbridled passion. Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption. With over three decades combined experiences in song writing, touring and recording, the trio is now ready to share their self-titled debut full-length album – set for release on February 17th. The album will be available for pre-order on December 23rd, with an instant download of the first single, Battle of Me.
Originally known for their respective solo careers, Christopher Arruda (the lion), Cory Woodward (the bear) and Ryan McMahon (the fox), joined forces as Lion Bear Fox in 2012 and was immediately selected as one of the top 20 unsigned bands in British Columbia (Peak Performance Project). The fall of 2013 saw the band release their self-produced breakthrough EP, We’d Be Good Men, and take Western Canada by storm, touring 15 times over the next two years, including stops at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Contact East (PEI), OSAC (Regina) Mission Folk Festival and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists like Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood and Kim Mitchell.
2016 saw the group further cement themselves as the new Canadian band to watch. With the help of friend and producer, Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), the trio spent ten days in the Vancouver Island wilderness, crafting “the record of their lives” – a collection of songs steeped in character and full of warmth. One part folk, one part rock, a pinch of gospel and a dash of growl, the self-titled LP is a testament to the trio’s strength as songwriters. Lush acoustic guitars are bookended by buzzing electrics and screaming organs; all tied together by rich percussion and three voices in mighty harmony. It’s a sound that harkens back to an era when the song was paramount.
“The new album was a big undertaking for us all - our producer Nygel included - and it certainly marks a shift in sound and seriousness for Chris, Cory and myself,” says McMahon. “When we use the phrase ‘record of our lives,’ we’re not kidding.”
“This is an album of three men telling their truths together through art they believe in,” Arruda continues. “When people ask us how this album sounds, we’ve taken to saying “it sounds like truth.” In the studio, we were both fearless and relentless in our approach to crafting this album. We tore these songs apart and put them back together over and over again, in an attempt to make something that sounded timeless. The songs have elements of rock, folk, blues and gospel but ultimately, I think we were successful in building a sonic-landscape where our three voices sat on top of the instrumentation. We didn’t let the music get in the way of the song, or the story.”
