With warm guitar sounds, catchy hooks and soulful vocals, he puts a clearly emotional stamp on confusing times. Washed-out jeans, lightness, delusions of grandeur and a get-up-and-go attitude. All that comes back when MYLE sings. The German-American has what it takes to become the discovery of the year on the pop market.
Washed-out jeans, lightness, delusions of grandeur and a get-up-and-go attitude. All that comes back when MYLE sings. The German-American has what it takes to become the discovery of the year on the pop market. With warm guitar sounds, catchy hooks and soulful vocals, he puts a clearly emotional stamp on confusing times.
MYLE is 21 years old. His father is from southern Germany, his mother from New York. „I spent all my summers in New York,“ he said, „the culture, the artistic flair - that‘s America for me. English is my first language and also my mother tongue.“ American music fascinates him: Conan Gray, LAUV or Julia Michaels.
At the age of seven, he starts playing the piano but has a vehement aversion to reading music. „I hate the theoretical approach. My philosophy is ‚Just do it‘.“ Therefore, he starts writing his first songs without delay. He takes up playing the guitar („Because I thought girls are crazy about that“), forms his first band, and gains experience in performing live. In 2016, when MYLE is 16 years old, he plays at the Southside Festival with bands like Green Day or Milky Chance. „I couldn‘t suppress the urge to keep saying something.“ He continues to write and discovers music production as another way of expressing himself. „Maybe even something like an additional voice“. In his small home studio, he has been writing and producing new songs every day for a good year and a half now, honing his style, getting to the bottom of his personality, writing, recording, testing, discarding and getting ever closer to his own style.
He sends his references out into the world. And the world responds! „I am addicted to pop! I need catchy melodies, powerful guitars and pulsating drums. I need danceable US sounds; I need it modern and nostalgic at the same time.“ Sometimes with a twang, sometimes falsetto: The half-American‘s energetic performance creates an international vibe and a bit of wanderlust. „I‘m looking forward to the years to come,“ he says. And one might assume that the years are looking forward to him, too.
