SummaryMiles Bonny has been dubbed "the missing link between D'Angelo and Willie Nelson". "Lumberjack Soul" features some of Miles biggest successes (the Raphael Saadiq tribute EP "Instant Saadiq" with DJ Day, "J.Birly" by Miles & The Ins, his kollabos with Suff Daddy and TE1 ...) plus five brand-new songs.
Includes cover versions of songs by The Meters ("Handclapping Song"), Raphael Saadiq ("Still Ray" + "What's Life Like"), Jerry Butler ("J.Birly" as used by Dilla on "Donuts") and Kermit the frog ("A Song From Kermit" from Sesame Street).
Bio: Miles Bonny is the son of Francis Bonny, a professional trumpet player. He has been exposed to Jazz, Latin, and Classical music all of his life. Growing up with trumpets around him, he played his first note at age 2. Frequent trips accompanying his father at latin, jazz, and symphony rehearsals allowed him to meet greats such as Tito Puente and Max Roach. Miles is part of the Innatesounds Crew (Reggie B, Ces Cru) and has recorded and released records with DJ Day, Suff Daddy, Shawn Lee, TE1, The Ins, Hulk Hodn, Retrogott, Twit One, 74 Miles Away, AHU, Fleur Earth, Dela, Ta-ku, Portformat and many more. Together with Vinnese producer Brenk (Hi-Hat Club, MC Eiht), Miles has formed the group S3 (Supa Soul S**t). They will release their first album later this year on MPM.
