Myles Sanko is back with his wonderful new album Memories of Love: and its one of his best and private. The media feedback is enthusiastic and his first 3 singles “Freedom Is You”, “Rainbow In Your Cloud” and “Streams Of Time” gained fantastic radio air play and went onto several play lists such as Soul `n` the City and on Jazz FM.
“This album is my most personal album yet, each song is a memory of love, a story of love, good or bad, happy or sad. Love is not always as we picture it in fairy tales but a work in progress for as long as we choose to love, says Myles Sanko. Over the years I have written love songs and most of them have some reality in them but also a lot of fiction. Maybe this was because I wasn’t truly ready to share that part of me in a way that I am defiantly more comfortable doing now. I’d say becoming a father has changed my outlook and made me a little “more brave” and accepting of myself“.
Myles, born in Ghana released several records such as his debut mini album Born In Black & White in 2013 to be followed by his second album Forever Dreaming and Just Being Me, released in 2016. The past years went perfectly right for Myles, his fan base grew up and playing more than 250 club shows and some of the main festivals in 2019 he was able to show his fantastic live quality with his great band.
In January 2020 he produced with the great conductor Gast Waltzing & Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg and his band an 1 ½ hour live show at the Philharmonic in Luxemburg. The sold-out show was also recorded and will be released and partly broadcasted on several videos in the next months.
Myles and Gast are available to join in with local orchestras from summer /autumn 2022 onwards. Their first performance with the Babelsberg Filmorchester Potsdam in 2019 has been awesome and the audience showed their love. Some of the main German orchestras showed interest already and we are on our way getting first dates confirmed.
Line up on top of the orchestra of this special one is: Gast Waltzing direction, Myles Sanko vocals, Gareth Lumbers saxophone, flute, Sam Ewens trumpet, flugelhorn, Phil Stevenson guitar, Tom O’Grady piano, Jon Mapp bass & Rick Hudson on drums.
But first! Myles Sanko will present his new album live with his band in autumn/winter 2021 and is available for some kick off shows (if the pandemic will allow us) in November 2021 and of course for all shows possible in spring and summer 2022.
