A talented and criminally underrated artist from Hollywood, California, Myles Maxwell might be a fresh face on the music scene, but he’s also one of the most impressive. Humble, authentic, and wonderfully charming, Myles has developed an expressive rock sound that draws inspiration from every age of the genre, including old school punk, timeless Americana, and even a dash of homegrown soul. With a desire to “spread good will and love”, Myles has become a unique figure in modern music, and it’s all thanks to his passion, drive, and determination.
The latest release from Myles, and arguably his most successful to date, ‘The Heartbreak Song & Others’ is a gorgeous illustration of his multi-faceted sound, stitching together three original tracks that are sure to make their mark and tug at your heartstrings.
Opening with the title track, ‘The Heartbreak Song’, Myles delivers a rustic melody built from heavy drum hits and textured acoustic guitar that lays a perfect platform for Myles’ vocals and quiet, poignant verse. Musically, it’s a sparse, but deeply moving piece, one that seeks refuge in old-world folk and Americana, capturing glimpses of a time gone by. Caught in a similar vein, ‘When I Let You Down’ strips things back further, offering subtle production and DIY atmospherics that slowly expand, creating a smouldering country-rock song that is personal, reflective, and hard to shake. For the final track, ‘Your Perfect Love Song’, Myles continues to impress, sharing a poetic final moment that is filled with heart, love, and appreciation.
Available now on all major platforms, along with the gorgeous opening track on our Spotify playlists, ‘The Heartbreak Song & Others’ is a rough, but intimate release, one that showcases Myles’ potential and raw talent without any mainstream gloss or needless frills.
