Dig Sessions are just an excuse to get out into the world, make friends, and document music. We are trying to capture all music, of all genres and musicianship levels. In our modern world of iPods and mp3s it is easy to forget that not so many years ago if you wanted to hear music you had to either play it yourself, or watch someone else play. That is the soul of The Dig Sessions, watching people play music. Single takes, no gimmicks. Just a microphone and a camera capturing REAL music with all its beautiful imperfections. View all
Myles Coyne, of Myles Coyne and the Rusty Nickel Band, Animals in Human Attire, and Temple among other projects, has entrenched himself in the Milwaukee music scene over the past few years. His stage presence and charisma is undeniable and has helped him play festivals like SXSW and win hearts and eardrums of people all over the nation.
We were lucky enough to track Myles down on a blustery, overcast Saturday in Milwaukee and film a Dig Session with him at the Exclusive Company on Brady Street. This track is entitled Minotaur is yet to be released. We hope you enjoy it.
Myles is playing a free show with another Dig Session alumni, the Calamity Janes and the Fratney Street Band, and Pay The Devil at Yield Bar in Milwaukee on April 4th. He is also playing a show as part of the release of the Top 5 Records compilation The Sound of Young Milwaukee. Look for that out in mid April.
