From the suburbs of Philadelphia, with sounds infecting the East Coast and beyond, Long Miles brings you melodies from a light heart. The band likes to shine in their own way, bringing good vibes to people wherever they take the stage.
“Long Miles is a wonderful young band from Philadelphia and if you didn’t know that you would swear they are from some beach community on the west coast. Fans of G Love, Jack Johnson and almost any jam band should love Long Miles.” - Marc Swersky of Etalent Showcase
Long Miles has come a long way since their self-produced LP, 405 Productions, recorded in their freshman college dorm room in Charleston in 2009. They recorded A Philadelphonic EP with Chris DiBeneditto (G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid) at Philadelphonic Studios in Philadelphia, with a November 2010 release. In March of 2012 they released their latest album, Shades, recorded with Rick Beato (Trey Anastasio, NeedToBreathe, The Movement). Both of these recordings showcase Long Miles’ exploration of reggae-tinged textures and jam band-influenced song arrangements, while continuing to define their signature blend of inventive lyrics and tight, dance-inducing rhythms.
With tunes on the radio and consistent crowds at live shows, their potential to be a major influence on the scene can be found at every listen. Keep an ear out for their next album, also recorded with Chris DiBeneditto, which is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2014.
