Miles was listening to Jazz from year one as his father was an engineer/producer for Gil Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, Tubby Hayes, Stan Tracy and many more. He was given a set of congas and a lesson by Dizzy Gillespie and encouraged to practice, practice, practice!
He began his career as a session percussionist and drummer at the age of 16 and has since recorded and toured with artists such as Sting, Dominic Miller, Michael Jackson, Elvis (yep – you read that right!!), Jermaine Jackson, Robert Palmer, Tina Turner, Beyonce, Joe Cocker, Billy Ocean, Level 42, Darrel Hall, Joan Armatrading, Simply Red, Kylie Minogue, Steps Ahead, Nigel Kennedy, John Martyn, Dave Gilmore, Brand New Heavies amongst countless others.
His passion for music and songwriting has taken him around the world and opened his heart and mind to many musical styles, which led to the formation of the bands “Peoplespeak” and “USONiC” – the latter of which received a MOBO nomination for best Jazz Album in 2011.
As an accomplished musician, writer, and producer he now works from his studio in North London as well as continuing to tour and record with various artists.
