Bio

What do a former UN-worker and a journalist do when they become disenfranchised with the world around them? Start a band, that’s what!

Conceived whilst living through the military coup in Bangkok in 2014, Miles Recommends is the brain-child of singer/songwriting and production duo Des Atkinson and Lou Cadell.

Taking their moniker from their childhood video store clerk, Des and Lou (like the movies Miles recommended) defy genres through invoking a critical spirit that dissects the social norms of today. With the addition of Filipino rock god Ken Estioko, Miles Recommends blends rock, folk, blues and pop-influences with catchy tunes, soulful harmonies and cheeky turns of phrase that will have you dancing and singing along in no time.

Their new single 'You’re Never Alone' came about from watching the world happily skip into the Anthropocene as vested interests continue to distort democratic institutions. Yet despite having the weight of the world’s problems on your shoulders, and knowing there’s no promise for a brighter future, it’s important to remember that, ‘You’re Never Alone'.
