York-based Miles makes his debut with this six-track offering. It encompasses songs which bare their souls to the audience in a way which is reminiscent of Joan Armatrading. The set is full of passion and wisdom. The sound is somewhere between Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera) and Paul Heaton (Housemartins/Beautiful South). "Right By Your Side" is an intensely personal, intimate number whilst "I Might Bleed" shows the hurt. "Haunted Man", the title track, doesn't quite come off - a little too dramatic for Miles really, he's far better with the personal stuff. "Something Good" is the best of the set and is the one where you feel he really starts letting his hair down after keeping things fairly well bottled up to that point. Decent debut and with more to come. Now where's your band Miles?
