"Solid, confident performance with strong guitar and vocals and good attention to tone" - Bruce Iglauer - Alligator Records
AC Myles new album 'Transitory' reaches new heights for the front man. Myles is stylistically along the lines of a modern day Joe Walsh, Johnny Winter, Elvin Bishop & Rory Gallagher. His albums 'With These Blues' (2017) ,'Rush to Red' (2015) & 'Reconsider Me' (2014) outline his musical development into one of the most valid guitarists and vocalists in the southern rock and blues arena. 'Transitory' (2021) is a collection of originals in rock & southern rock styling. Myles very confidently delivers 10 original songs, with a great vocal phrase and tone as well as staggering unyielding guitar work, leaving no doubt that he is the genuine article.
"...spotlights Myles's tough guitar playing and devastating singing.
- Tom Hyslop - Blues Revue Magazine
Myles' song selections on 'Reconsider Me' (2014), 'Rush to Red' (2015) & 'With These Blues' (2017), produced in San Jose, Ca. with Chris 'Kid' Andersen at his Greaseland Studio, vary from originals and choice covers, ranging traditional electric blues of the 60's and 70's into southern rock and blues-rock. On his current release 'Transitory' (2021), Myles sits in the engineering and production chair himself, displaying his talents as writer, engineer, producer, guitarist and singer. Recorded within the confines of his home studio and tracked along with his live band, Myles presented in completion, all the instrumental parts to his longtime rhythm section of bassist Phil Santellan and drummer Brian Bischel. The results were intuitively interpreted by the band into performances resulting in an organic recording. The all self-penned album tracks 'Upstairs, That Was Her' and the tour de force 'Say What You Want' showcase fierce rock n roll guitar and vocal chops, following right in line with the clever dream rocker 'To Dark To Cross' and the bluesy rocker 'Alibi' , which showcase Myles' musical depth and lyrical songwriting.
"Perhaps the only soulful thing to come out of Fresno, AC Myles can play the hell out of a guitar, and he's growing as a songwriter" - San Jose Metro Editor Steve Palopoli
The only son of production workers, Myles grew up in the migrant worker neighborhoods of Central California, spending his later teens and twenties touring with his own band. Finding his way to the San Francisco Bay Area & Los Angeles, he played sideman to an array of acts and begun touring nationally and internationally. The albums instrumentals 'Sonder City', 'Tunnel', & 'Dirty Dark' cross the spectrum of slick, melodic, big city guitar lines, heavy riffs and electronic bass and drums. With 'Transitory', Myles also brilliantly displays his songwriting abilities, which crossover as effortlessly as some larger drawing acts wish to. The catchy pop rock 'Moment Match Flash', '3 Ways to Fall' and southern rock slide guitar and radio ready chorus of 'Other Side', reinforce that AC Myles is one of those performers, that once seen and heard, you never forget.
