Brecken Miles Duo
Saturday, January 25 at 9 p.m.
Growing up in the sticks of Colgate, Wisconsin, music was bred into Brecken Miles' genes. His father, a lifelong musician, wanted at least one of his three children to pick up the guitar and play. After listening to his dad play songs of the Eagles, James Taylor and more, it wasn’t long before Brecken was inspired to pick up the ol' six-string at just 10 years of age.
Eager to play he'd come home from school every day and play the same song for hours. Brecken recalls plenty of nights falling asleep with a guitar in hand, bloody fingers, broken strings and all. He was turned onto country music after attending his first Kenny Chesney concert and has been hooked ever since. For the past five years he has been the front man of the Milwaukee-based band, Bella Cain, playing over 200 shows a year in front of some of the biggest crowds and opening for some of the most notable names in country music. Brecken is excited that it's his turn to bring his music to country radio and is thrilled to release "The Anchor," co-written with one of Nashville's finest songwriters, Rick Tiger.
