Myles from Home is originally from Linden, Manitoba and is now based in Montreal. He has released a six song EP for Christmas showcasing covers of his favourite Christmas songs which he has put his certainly unique twist on. The EP was released on December 1st and features some of the most known Christmas songs played during the holiday season.

“Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” opens the EP with a bang and certainly doesn’t sound like the usual new old fashioned way. He plays with some of the lyrics, making the song his own. “Walking In A Winter Wonderland” is also changed up a bit, mixing in a bit of John Mayer’s “Your Body Is A Wonderland” with Myles’ rendition of the Christmas hit. “Good King Wenceslas” is the softest song on the EP, played with very calming, beautiful acoustic guitar in the background, complimenting the harmonies in the vocals.  “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)” also takes on his more folk rock approach to songs and is more guitar centric than the other songs, with an added bit of harmonica. The EP is finished off with a slower, more acoustic version of “All I Want For Christmas”, and a whistle filled rendition of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”.

This EP filled with family favourites is sure to please those who are a fan of the indie and folk genres. Myles’ twist on the classics is definitely something you’ve never heard before and needs to be heard to be fully appreciated.
