REVIEW BY AL KNIOLA

Not every musical performer is an entertainer. Many just stand there and sing and strum. And maybe they talk to the audience and maybe they don't.

And then there's Marty Miles, a talented performer and a consummate entertainer. You won't be in Marty's audience for long before you're either singing along or engaged in banter or listening to a fascinating story - either spoken or in song. Marty makes his performances interesting and fun. His open and warm personality is infectious and soon everyone in the room feels like family. And he backs that up with fine vocals, smooth musicianship and a repertoire that ranges from quiet folk songs to rollicking rock - including Marty's excellent original songs as well as covers of all of your favorites.

Marty is a veteran of the local music scene that can always be counted on to deliver a great show. Whether he's playing solo, with a small combo or along with some top guest artists, you'll never be disappointed with his show. Check your local listings and be there at the next Marty Miles show!

"Song For Sarah & Jesse" in action

"Song For Sarah & Jesse" in action An Email Message From Pastor Brian Beeks at Monticello United Methodist Church in Monticello, IN: Marty, Thanks for coming and sharing in music on Sunday. I have received many positive comments. I also want to share a story with you. Bootsie was touched by the song about the death of your babies. She commented to me that she didn’t know why that song* had touched her so because she had never lost a baby. Today she was meeting with a group of women for lunch and a woman was a little “ouchy” and said she wouldn’t be in church on Sunday. There were others around and Bootsie didn’t feel comfortable probing. When they were leaving, Bootsie happened to see Peggy in the parking lot and they talked some more. Peggy said, “I’m planning to be a grouch on Sunday.” On Labor Day weekend 31(?) years ago, her doctor didn’t want to bother coming in to deliver her son and he ended up dying. Bootsie said she immediately knew why she wanted [the CD with] that song on Sunday. She went to her car and got the CD and gave it to Peggy. Thanks again. Brian
