From the suburbs of Philadelphia, with sounds infecting the East Coast and
beyond, Long Miles brings you melodies from a light heart. The band likes
to shine in their own way, bringing good vibes to people wherever they take
the stage. With heroes like Phish, Umphrey's McGee, Steel Pulse, and G.
Love & Special Sauce, Long Miles strives to feed the need for the groovy,
bouncy, feel-good tunes that make these groups so well known.
Long Miles has come a long way since their self-produced LP, 405
Productions, recorded in their freshman college dorm room in Charleston in
2009. They recorded A Philadelphonic EP with Chris DiBeneditto (G. Love &
Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid, the Movement) at Philadelphonic Studios in
Philadelphia, with a November 2010 release. In March of 2012 they released
their latest album, Shades, recorded with Rick Beato (Trey Anastasio,
NeedToBreathe, The Movement) at Black Dog Sound Recording Studios in
Long Miles takes a major sonic leap forward with Shades. The album
showcases their exploration of new reggae-tinged textures and jam
band-influenced song arrangements, while continuing to define their
signature blend of inventive lyrics and tight, dance-inducing rhythms. With
tunes on the radio and consistent crowds at live shows, their potential to
be a major influence on the scene can be found at every listen, and Long
Miles is ready for the world.
