Spirited songs, flawless musicianship, and a warm and engaging stage show have made Canadian folk and jazz singer/songwriter David Myles an instant hit with audiences worldwide.

His unabashed joy at being on stage is infectious, and he has been featured on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café.

“I’ve been obsessed with music since I was a little kid,” says Myles, who cites Miles Davis and Ray Charles as major influences.

Surrey Arts Centre presents Myles in an acoustic trio performance on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m.

Accompanied by Kyle Cunjak on upright bass and Alan Jeffries on guitar, Myles will play some folk-flavoured tunes from his past albums, as well as songs from his new release, Into the Sun, which showcases his love of experimentation, combining pop hooks with great songwriting.

“It’s contemporary folk music in maybe the same vein as Paul Simon or James Taylor,” explains Myles. “There’s also a heavy soul and R&B influence.”

Tickets ($30-33) are available at tickets.surrey.ca or by calling 604-501-5566. The Surrey Arts Centre is located at 13750 88 Ave.
