Join Miles Goodall in his ‘Fantasy’ as we premiere his brand-new Jazz-Pop track.
When listening to Miles Goodall’s crooning vocals, you’d be forgiven for being shocked when you find out that he was once kicked out of his primary school choir for singing out of tune. Miles wrote his first song at the age of 10, he tells us it was terrible, but the discovery that he loves to be able to express himself in that way has stuck with him (thankfully for us).
From Liverpool, but now living in Brighton, Miles has always been surrounded by powerful hubs of creativity, when it comes to influences however, Steely Dan, Miles tells us, are probably his biggest influence. “I listen to a lot of music so it’s hard to pin down and it changes depending on my mood, when I wrote/recorded ‘Fantasy’, I was listening to a lot of Andy Shauf, Carole King, Adele and John Mayer.”
The artwork for ‘Fantasy’ is the first to include Goodall’s face. “So far with my other releases, I’ve only used either drawings or pictures that don’t really show my face,” he tells us. “As ‘Fantasy’ is written from personal experience, I wanted to actually have my face on the artwork and when the photographer I was working with (Rory Brown) and I found a really cool old bookshop that we both loved, and the pictures just worked.”
About to head over to Budapest to play some shows with Amelia Caesar supporting Margaret Island, things are really picking up for Goodall. With another single release planned for February, Miles just wants to keep writing and playing music. “As long as I can play music and make some sort of living out of it, I’m happy.”
