Myles Davidson

Cape Breton

Myles Davidson is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from St. Peter’s, Richmond County. His music can be characterized as a blend of folk, country, and rock, infusing into his style elements of both traditional and contemporary music. Myles started to play music at the age of four, with a goal of carrying on the musical legacy built by his family. He is the son of Harold Davidson, a founding member of the Halifax-based band Brakin’ Tradition, and the grandson of Estwood Davidson, longtime accompanist for legendary Cape Breton fiddler Winston “Scotty” Fitzgerald. A self-taught musician, Myles plays several instruments in various capacities and, as a songwriter, is known for his ability to paint vivid pictures with his words. He has released two studio albums—Leaving it Behind (2016) and Out with the Old (2022)—and had three singles hit number one on the radio charts. Myles is a seasoned performer on the Maritime music scene, having worked with the likes of J.P. Cormier, Dave Gunning, and Cyril MacPhee and played during the East Coast Music Awards and KitchenFest! as well as Celtic Colours over the years.
