Cambridge artist Myles Sanko releases this upbeat and soulful new title track from his upcoming album Just Being Me.

Set to a rich backdrop of strings, choirs and backing vocals, Myles’ sound takes inspiration from soul legends such as Marvin GayeBill WithersDonny Hathaway and Gil Scott Heron. The lyrics meanwhile explore topics of love, hope and politics, delivered with a 21st Century perspective.

Born in Acra in Ghana in the wake of a violent uprising, Myles spent his childhood moving from country to country in West Africa before eventually moving to the UK at the age of 16. Growing up on hip hop, his tastes gradually moved to soul and then jazz, influencing his musical path.

Finding a middle ground between the jazzy sophistication of Gregory Porter and the folksy rawness of Michael Kiwanuka, Myles sound is sure to appeal to all breeds all soul fan, made unique by its DIY approach. A musician, composer, producer, artist and cinematographer, Myles’ multiple creative talents have allowed to create music entirely in his own vision.

Already he has risen to prominence in the soul world, making the front cover of Blues and Soul Magazine and touring with the likes of Gregory Porter and Speedometer. He has also performed sell-out shows at esteemed venues such as the Grec Theater in Barcelona. Future endeavours include supporting Gregory Porter again this November, as well as making a guest appearance on the upcoming album from Mousse T.

The single is out September 23rd

The album Just Being Me is out October 28th
