Getting To Know... Myles From Home

After establishing themselves with a string of immersive delights these last few years, Canadian outfit Myles From Home are now back for 2024 to deliver their breezy new single 'Dusty Lavender'.

Capturing more of that rich and inviting folk-rock aesthetic they have quickly earned a reputation for, 'Dusty Lavender' makes for a beautifully warm and embracing listen. Filled with bold and blossoming textures, a soaring atmosphere, and woozy hooks layered throughout, they continue to shine as one of the more exciting names doing the rounds right now.

So with the new single available to stream now, we sat down with them to find out more about their origins and what has been inspiring them most lately.


What was the first instrument you fell in love with?

Guitar. I honestly can’t imagine how different my life would have been had I not started playing the guitar.

What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

I grew up listening to Elton John and Al Stewart tapes on long road trips in the family motorhome. I still love their music.

What was the first album you remember owning?

The Joshua Tree by U2. I had the tape. I remember listening to it on repeat in the tractor while working on the farm.

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

Fix You by Coldplay. What a song.

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

Nothing specific. Creativity strikes without warning. One rule I do have though is if I feel inspired by a song I’m working on I cancel everything else I’m doing.

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

Half Moon Run, Hozier, Leif Vollebekk

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?


What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

Seeing people at our shows who are digging the music and singing along with the words.

And what is the most frustrating part?

I have a love-hate relationship with social media. It’s great to be able to connect with fans all over the world but the pressure to constantly be sharing content and understanding “the algorithm” is frustrating.

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

Be your authentic self, always.
