    SANKO, MYLES

    Just Being Me

    [engl] 
    Essentially, the history of British soul music is a long story about the search for identity. With his third album „Just Being Me“, Ghana born singer, songwriter, producer, designer, musician and cinematographer Myles Sanko adds an essential chapter to this eventful journey. Featuring eleven new compositions, „Just Being Me“ explores the inner self and transcends stylistic borders. With its rich instrumentation and colourful arrangement it speaks out as loud as a proper soul album should. „For me, music is the key to communication between people. When I write, play and sing music, I do not plan it to be labelled ‘soul’ or ‘jazz’ – it just comes naturally as it is,“ Myles Sanko explains. With his true, emotional and straightforward style, he is able to connect past, present and future. “Of course I am inspired by the classic sounds of the Sixties and Seventies coming out of Detroit, Memphis or Philadelphia. But I grew up in the middle of the English countryside. We had no ghetto or deal with social unrest in the streets. Nevertheless, when you grow up coming from a mixed racial background into a conservative society, you need to develop a strategy of survival.” One key element of this strategy was to take business in his very own hands.
