A Maui police officer by day, Miles is a two-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award finalist, first with the group Matagi on their debut CD, and later for a collaboration on a single entitled "Sincerely" with Hawai'i's iconic legend Fiji. He also released a CD with the group Hoala. A self-taught 12 string guitarist (he also plays bass and 'ukulele), Miles was inspired by the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau, Ho'okena, the Brothers Cazimero, Roddy Lopez of the Pandanus Club and more. Early in his career he traveled with the Hawai'i Visitors Bureau promoting Hawai'i abroad, and he currently continues to perform live at venues across Maui during the evening hours.
In recording this EP, Miles called upon a wide variety of musician friends from several islands to lend their talents, including: Kevin Brown (kiho'alu guitar); Mike Casil (percussion); Kason Gomes (backup vocals, guitar, ukulele, and bass); Keola Grace (upright bass); Keani Kahuhu (cello); Sonny Lim (steel guitar); Kaulike Pescaia (ukulele); Nalei Pokipala (background vocals); Wailau Ryder (guitars and bass); and Dwight Tokumoto (acoustic steel guitar).
The EP was produced by Miles and recorded and engineered at I-Vibe Studio by Michael Casil. It is available on all digital outlets.
