Heather Myles completes CD

Friday, September 19, 2008 – Honky tonk singer Heather Myles has not been heard from in six years, but now she is ready to release new music, she said Thursday.

"This is all new songs that I've written," said Myles in an interview during the Americana Music Festival & Conference in Nashville.

Myles' last release in the U.S. was "Sweet Talk & Good Lies" in 2002. Rounder Records in Europe released a live DVD of Myles playing the Netherlands in June.

California-based throughout her career, Myles said she moved several months ago to Texas. She said that the style of music she is interested in is harder to find now in California, and she thought Texas was a better setting for her music.

Myles has played out a few shows and said she was in Nashville to line up a booking agent, who would be able to secure dates. She talked about starting off by playing in the Texas and Oklahoma areas and also indicated interest in playing the Northeast. Myles always has enjoyed support in Europe.

Myles said she hoped to have the CD out in 2009 on Rounder.

Don't let the vulnerable prettiness on the cd cover fool you: Heather Myles is as much a badass as she's ever been. Just listen to the take-no-bull attitude of crowd-pleaser "Sweet Little Dangerous," where Myles declares, "Some people don't like my attitude/Well I don't give a damn - they ain't wearin' my shoes." With the earthy, straightforward quality of Loretta Lynn, she takes Nashville's current commercial glam to task in "Nashville's Gone Hollywood." (Her tone takes a similar Loretta turn on ...
After a three-year absence from the studio, Heather Myles, one of the premier purveyors of hard country is back, and she's still a double-barreled threat. First, there's her voice, and while its huskiness and ever-present implication of reserved power perhaps inevitably lead to comparisons with the late, great Tammy Wynette, Myles' voice and what she does with it are all her own. Then there's her songwriting. Myles has written the majority of songs on all her releases; here she weighs in with 10 ...
