Wellington singer-songwriter Miles Calder will embark on a nationwide tour this April and May in celebration of his debut solo album 'Autopilot Life', out now.
The ten shows will see Miles and his band perform in intimate venues across Aotearoa, captivating audiences with a dynamic set ranging from floating atmospheric ballads to chomping rock n roll.
Four years on since his folk/Americana self-titled release with former backing band 'The Rumours' and time living overseas, Miles has emerged with a renewed sound, fresh songs, and a new band. Featuring long term collaborators Nick George (drums) and Steve Moodie (bass), plus Chris Armour (electric guitar) and Dayle Jellyman (synths, electric piano), these psych-tinged textures of cascading synths, atmospheric noise, and searing guitar solos, amplify Miles songs and compelling vocals to new levels of lush, hypnotic production.
His new album Autopilot Life takes his classic folk-rock style into a striking psychedelic realm, evoking early 70s Lennon and late-era Beatles as much as contemporaries like Kevin Morby and Father John Misty.
