Today we’d like to introduce you to M.I.L.E.S Kirkland.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I grew up, in a single parent home. Spent a majority of my youth in church. As I was a “PK” aka preacher’s kid. I played drums, as well. I played around with music, [freestyling, etc.]. But never actually recorded. I started taking it serious, at 20/21. It’s been my full focus and go to since then. Transforming and perfecting my craft as a: artist, songwriter, drummer & podcaster. In efforts to learn more. And broaden my pallet, in the arts.
Please tell us about your art.
I personally make music for critical thinkers/souls & mind wanderers. Because I am them. It’s where my heart is. The inspiration behind it is, to show, not everything is as it may seem. I like touching on topics such as mental health, religion, and different degrees and facets of life. With witty wordplay and clever quotable. But with my own feel. I also, like to have fun in the music. So it’s not ALWAYS so heavy and tiring. I want people to take away a piece of me [obviously]. But I also want them to see, you can have multiple & different layers, to yourself. To get outside the box. You have to realize, there is NO box.
As an artist, how do you define success and what quality or characteristic do you feel is essential to success as an artist?
Success, comes in many forms. For me, simply having a song that fully resonates with someone, I may or may not know. Is a success. I personally look for the connection. If I can connect with you in some influential/helpful way. I’ve done what I’m supposed/set out, to do.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I’m on all social media outlets: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. And also, on many music platforms.
EVERYTHING is @_Milesgone. Except Facebook. Which is Garry Miles Kirkland. As far as support, outlets like this is GREAT. The most important way is word of mouth. And vocal expression. As well as a tag and repost, every here and there, lol.
