DAVID MYLES

DAVID MYLES RETURNS TO KING’S FOR TWO SOLO CONCERTS

Come Tee-up for the Tournament of King’s!

 

Award-winning and critically acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter David Myles might be an undercover musicologist. Within his eclectic artistic continuum, he’s reverentially explored jazz, blues, pop, holiday music, French pop, rockabilly, country, folk, gospel, and even hip-hop. The through line in his 12-album oeuvre has been strong songcraft—no matter what genre, David has never sacrificed substance for style.

After the painful blow of his father’s sudden passing, David struggled with the push and pull of being a successful musician while being a present and loving husband and father. His focus shifted from free-spirited musical travels to looking inward to the core of his own artistry. The resulting long player is the cozy acoustic, Leave Tonight, his most personal offering to date.

“I felt like I had to recommit to music and make this count. I wanted to find out who I was in my most natural musical habitat,” the Halifax, Nova Scotia-based artist shares. “I’ve made a lot of records that have been like David Myles doing this…. I wanted to make something that sounded like me.”

THANK YOU TO OUR OFFICIAL CONCERT SPONSOR!

An immersive portrait of dance pioneer Alvin Ailey, told through his own words and a new dance inspired by his life.

 

Alvin Ailey was a trailblazing pioneer who found salvation through dance. AILEY traces the full contours of this brilliant and enigmatic man whose search for the truth in movement resulted in enduring choreography that centers on the Black American experience with grace, strength, and unparalleled beauty.

KEONTÉ BEALS & BAND

KEONTÉ BEALS & BAND

R&B powerhouse KEONTÉ BEALS controls the pulse of an entire crowd from the moment he takes the stage.

 

With a live energy that can be compared to no other, Beals’s was named  the African Nova Scotian Music Association’s Artist of the Year 2020 and Music Nova Scotia’s African Nova Scotian Artist of the Year 2019—not to mention multiple East Coast Music Award nominations. To put it plainly, the North Preston, Nova Scotia-based singer, songwriter and performer is a force to be felt—and the entire east coast of Canada knows it.

North Preston has a historic lineage of growing the biggest voices in Nova Scotia through its strong gospel scene and church community. Beals keeps this tradition going with his own powerhouse pipes, which first wowed crowds when, at 16, he gave his solo debut at his home church. Pivoting into an early 2000s-influenced R&B sound as he began to create his own music, Beals’s colorful body of work highlights the range of his talent and musicality. He has a voice that breaks generational boundaries, backed by a sonic palette that draws easy comparison to the work of Usher, Anthony Hamilton and Elijah Blake.

Beals “is a beautiful singer with key skills to match, and he’s only just out of his teens” (The Coast) and “everything he does revolves around music” (Halifax Magazine). His upcoming debut album (due summer 2020) and its lead single—the mental health anthem “KING”, which shreds toxic masculinity over a red-hot beat—prove it.

Seats are limited to accommodate physical distancing of 6 feet. Face masks are required. Please note that once Nova Scotia reaches Phase 5, seating will expand to full capacity.

King’s Theatre is committed to making live performances accessible to all audiences. If the ticket price is a barrier, bursaries are available. Please get in touch by contacting the Box Office: boxoffice@kingstheatre.ca or 902-532-7704.
