David Myles is a busy singer-songwriter-trumpeter based on the East Coast. He has released a dozen albums (the most recent in French,) and won a Juno and two MuchMusic awards for his work on the song, ‘Inner Ninja.’ He has also published a children’s book, Santa Never Brings Me a Banjo. He broadcasts Myles from Home literally from home in Halifax, or close-to — he records each show in ‘The Pod’ — a custom-built shed/rehearsal space in his backyard.
“I’ve been obsessed with music my whole life,” he says. “I’ve always liked talking about music and sharing songs.”
His CKUA show is not his first radio-rodeo. Myles hosted the East Coast Music Hour on CBC, from 2014 to 2016.
A folk-roots musician, David has won a Juno and two Much Music Awards for … a rap video. ‘Inner Ninja,’ his collaboration with Canadian rapper Luke Boyd (a.k.a. Classified,) hit #5 on the Canadian charts and won a pile of awards.
David is married to Nina Corfu and they have two young daughters.

For David, this show is about sharing his lifetime love of music. “My whole life I’ve been astounded that music is a seemingly infinite well,” he says. “There’s always something new to discover. It’s the greatest thing about being a music fan.” Just when you think you’ve run out of cool stuff to hear the world surprises you — and that’s exactly what Myles From Home has in store. Sometimes it’s a pop jam, sometimes it’s classic jazz, country, soul or gospel. It’s more about what makes the recording special and why we should listen to it.
