David Myles (CA)
David Myles was born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick. When Santa didn't bring him a banjo, he picked up the trumpet instead and could often be found making music with his three older brothers. With a political science degree to his credit, David was on his way to law school when he was snatched from the jaws of a conventional career by the lure of music. Eleven records, numerous awards and dozens of tours later, David is excited to have his first book published.
