ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A tasty blend of folk, blues, rock and country, with songs that tell poignant stories and instrumentation that perfectly compliments and punctuates. Caleb Miles sings and plays every instrument, handling drums, bass, piano, organ, pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, and acoustic and electric guitars in an impressive range of styles.

Caleb Miles began his musical career at the age of 15 when he was asked to join legendary Albuquerque politico-rockers The Illegal Aliens. Throughout the 1980s he contributed incendiary lead guitar to many of New Mexico's finest rock'n'roll bands, including F.O.R. and A Murder Of Crows. After relocating to Portland, Oregon in 1996 and performing with several bands (including Kentucky Snakehandlers and Lewi Longmire Band), Caleb rekindled his interest in home studio recording and, upon moving to Nova Scotia in 2005, produced BRICKYARD ROAD, a rootsy collection of original tunes featuring Caleb on all instruments and vocals.

Here's what folks have to say about Caleb Miles' BRICKYARD ROAD:

“Wanted to thank you enthusiastically for Caleb's CD---Wow, there is so much talent there! The range of songs and sounds has kept me listening to it over and over again with more pleasure than any recent thing I've heard---his poetry and humor, his anger and warmth and unpretentious real wisdom, his dark places and sweetness and the sheer enjoyment he shows and shares. Favorites? Just Rewards, Sad Old Rock'n'Roller, Perseverance, Rambling Road---a truly wonderful production…”

-- Jack Dempsey, writer/historian/bad apple

“omg, brickyard is the greatest. you are my hero. when is the tour?”

-- Mark Donovan, poet, information specialist, rabid concert-goer
----------

“Chicken-fried soul blues stories mightily focused, man.....YOUR CD IS
AWESOME!!! I got it in the mail today and drove around listening to it in my truck as I ran some errands. I listened to it again in the house. Solid
statement you've created....a masterpiece (understatement). I stand in awe of the instrumentation and understand that your singing style has mellowed like fine bourbon.”

-- John Murphy, painter/musician/visionary

“O.K. so like I love your freaking cd. Good lyrics, good playing (of course), sounds great. Love the country twang on track 5…Good fucking job.”

-- Nancy G, poet/asylum manager

“Brickyard Rd. arrived this morning and I've listened twice. First, the CD
looks great, very tasteful. "Trouble" and "Murder Ballad" sound very fine, your voice expressive and all the music input just right. "Just Rewards" has a great line/image: getting your wings to cross the endless desert. "Perseverance" also: mountains beyond mountains, "God's great plan." "Sad Old RockNRoller" is a great lyric, instant classic among rock&rollers, I would think. "The Splinter & the Rail" is just beautiful, incredibly beautiful. "Rambling Road" finishes the whole CD perfectly. Your voice sounds good in all of them and every instrumental touch or passage is strong, beautiful, deep, tasteful.

At the end I can see Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn walking away down the road, receding, disappearing...beautiful, moving, and genuine. I hear George Harrison in the lusher parts of the CD, but Brit become American. It's the classic mood of all those folk ballads, and these songs, each one, is kind of a classic of this genre... Your voice, the lyric and definitely the orchestration are sad, beautiful, impeccably restrained........ and almost mystical, if you could conceive Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn seeing themselves as illusions and walking off into the Void leaving something infinitely sad, sweet and lovely in the air behind. SAD!!!! but perfect, America relinquishes its ghost.”

-- Barbara Mor, poet/visionary/mother

“Here are some things I wanted to tell you about your songs.

Trouble I really like this one a LOT. I play it over and over. I like the
words, too.

Flood - I like the harmonica and the driving beat on this one.

Honest Trade - Great guitar and you got a great band behind you. This is a great song.

Sad Old Rock n Roller - I really like the lyrics on this one, especially
"a six string slinging soldier on the back roads of fame".

Tell Tale Blues... you KNOW how much I love this song. Still do.

Perseverence - I especially like your voice on this one.

I am so happy to have your CD.”

-- Donaleen Kohn, music enthusiast/budding harmonica virtuoso

Caleb! I'm really digging this CD. I love "Trouble" and dang! I love your vocal in "Flood" - very John Lennon somehow. Kudos!

-- Deb-O, singer/songwriter/accordionist
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

“A good job of mixing up the styles without breaking the momentum of the disc. A couple tunes struck me as very Lennon like, with some nice aural texturing…when Caleb just lets it rip, his voice takes on the quality of a sandpaper angel. I hope we get to hear some of his new material live.”

-- Greg Peters, music enthusiast and collector

So I been listening to "Brickyard Road" (in fact I am listening to it now) and think its really good. I dig the different production styles you gave to different songs. "Sad Old RockandRoller" sounds like a Jesse Ed Davis tune. The whole thing has a great live vibe to it. Sounds like a bunch of friends having fun together. You and your band are really tight!

-- Lewi Longmire, singer/songwriter/guitarist/soul brother
