Miles Francis


  1. 1.
    You're a Star
Miles Francis grew up in New York City.
He has learned from the best, and it shows. Since he started playing – first the drums at 6, then guitar, bass, keyboards, other percussion, anything he could get his hands on – he’s been an eager and diligent student. He spent countless hours in his childhood basement dissecting Prince's guitar parts, learning David Byrne's vocal phrasing, recreating J Dilla beats, meditating on Fela Kuti basslines, and studying David Bowie's chord progressions. As a working musician, Miles has collaborated and performed with tUnE-yArDs, Sharon Jones, Mark Ronson, Amber Mark, Angelique Kidjo, Allen Toussaint, Tunde Adebimpe (@TV On The Radio) and many others; toured the world with Will Butler (Arcade Fire), Antibalas and EMEFE; and appeared on shows like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with David Letterman. All before the age of 26, too.
He released his debut single, “You're a Star,” in March 2017. Expect more soon.
