TODAY: David Myles at Grand Parade 

Soul man David Myles comes back to Halifax for a show after a long tour, including shows with Jools Holland in the UK

As he takes the stage at the Grand Parade, someone needs to crown David Myles king of the road. The long, lean man tours non-stop, or so it seems after a read of his blog and all the tour-dates mentioned therein.

He played the nation's capital for Canada Day and celebrated New Brunswick Day in Fredericton at the Lieutenant-Governor's residence. The LG, Herménégilde Chiasson, a writer himself, translated Myles's "When It Comes My Turn," from his second album,

Things Have Changed, into French.

Myles and band made transatlantic trips to the UK twice this summer, playing several shows with Jools Holland, former piano player with The Squeeze and TV host of Later...with Jools Holland. During that time, they played Shrewsbury, which, Myles wrote, is the home of that wayfaring, seafaring (aboard the Beagle) and pioneering evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin.

Most recently, Myles made it to a show in Kejimkujik National Park in southwestern Nova Scotia, and, last we heard, was hanging out in Fredericton with family and listening to Roger Miller, he of "King of the Road" fame, "non-stop."
