This wandering storyteller is at the forefront of a new breed of Australian folk artists, re-imagining and redeveloping the way music is shared, written and enjoyed across the globe.
Myles Mayo’s main history was with Special Patrol. He wrote the songs, played guitar and sang for this band. They recorded three full length albums and a number of EPs and singles.
Special Patrol toured Australia over a period of six years and played many of the great Australian festivals and venues. Touring highlights include Falls Festival main stage 2006 and 2008, Big Day Out, Clipsal 500 After Race Concert with Powderfinger, Woodford Festival as well as tours and/or shows with Ben Kweller (USA), Paul Weller (UK), The Mountain Goats (USA), Maximo Park (UK), The Bees (UK), Idlewild (UK), Turin Brakes (UK), Donovan Frankenreiter (USA), Evermore (NZ), Paul Kelly, The Whitlam’s, Pete Murray, The Church, Little Birdy.
In recent years Myles has expanded his solo work and songwriting, capitalising on his Mushroom Publishing links with a publishing deal in the US. His two solo albums, one self titled and the second Myles Mayo and The Modern Heart, have continued his storytelling with loads of quirky, emotive songs that capture fleeting moments from Myles past and present and somehow they become your stories and part of your life. His songs hit on a very real level, his observations are familiar scenes, those of personal triumph and tragedy, playing out like a video jukebox of shame or glory or both.
Not content to sit still he has a new project with some friends, including Caitlin Harnett, called Big Friendly Giant whose song Stepstone has been listed on Double J’s best new music alongside Belle and Sebastian, The Basics and Kate Tempest.
