Michael J. Miles is a rare and engaging artist. He grew up in Chicago in an Irish family where music was served like dinnerâ€”everybody had some. His blue collar father played the player piano and filled the house with singing. Everybody sang. Everyone read. Everyone debated politics.
Michael took it all in with great relish and has now turned the theatrical stage into his own living roomâ€”similarly filled with songs and stories. His theatrical works, his orchestral works, and his unplugged concerts all resonate with honest intimacy. This is music to be shared.
With an MA Music degree and four CDs to his credit, he also works as educator, sharing his zeal for music with both children and professional educators.
