Miles Arnell is an old soul living in the new world. Aged 23 years, hailing from a river-valley town in western CT called New Milford, Miles shares a lifelong creative journey with his songs, and with them, a lifetime of experiences anybody can identify with.
In excess of being a songwriter who writes for others as well as himself, Miles has sang and performed since a young age. With minimal formal training, he was twice featured in the northeast regional choir by age 14. He is also a self-taught musician, playing the guitar, keyboards, bass and mandolin.
His music is Pop married to rock and soul, producing a sound under the influence of both classic and contemporary artists such as The Beatles, Hall & Oates, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, John Mayer and Jason Mraz.
As a songwriter he's personally influenced by the great storytellers and poets like Bob Dylan and Jim Morrison, as a singer he cites Elvis Presley, Daryl Hall, and both John Lennon and Paul McCartney as being an enormous inspiration.
After a failed high school rock band, Miles has played out live for a few years now, garnering a strong local following in his hometown and playing all over CT and some parts of NY. "The Aquarian Weekly", a NYC/NJ based music magazine gave his home-produced demo a five-out-of-five star rating from one he dropped off on their stand at the 2013 "New Music Seminar" in NYC. They called his single 'Love Nest' a "fun, pleasant tune" with "a great hook."
Miles has also been featured and reviewed twice in "Hardworking Individual Male", a CT-based independent magazine as well as interviewed by Danbury Connecticut’s 98Q, the areas most notarized pop music radio station. Miles' songs have been described as catchy, impacting, fun, pleasant as well as romantic, sincere and moving. As of early 2014, he was awarded a semi-finalist position in the 2013 ‘International songwriting Competition’ or ‘ISC’ in the Pop/Top-40 category. He is ambitious and works hard at his craft to please both himself and the listener.
