Myles says “Growing up in Ghana was very magical and humbling at the same time, with every movement in life having it’s own rhythm. I was surrounded by all types of music, traditional Ghanaian music, reggae, funk and a lot of soul. My mothers side of the family were very musically talented and I believe that’s where my love for music came from”
As a child, his first taste for music came from countless hours of playing the djembe with his uncle, whom at the time was a chief drummer and taught him the rhythms of their African ancestors. Myles then found a love for hip-hop in his teens and begun to study the art of rapping. He soon started writing and sampling old school funk cassettes and recording mix-tapes which he sold to friends every time his visited family back in Ghana.
