Description
Uprising encapsulates the dynamic range of genres and expression that traces the rest of the album. It serves as his most personal and defining climb throughout his long-time career in the music industry. For Miles, it combines a deep love of songwriting with an innovative, truly one-of-a-kind ability on the Upright Bass. A balance he has worked decades to execute with precision, quality and taste.

The album will be released on the Alpha Pup Records sub-imprint World Galaxy, and features the collective Miles co-founded, the West Coast Get Down, a family of musicians he helped bring together during their formative years. The group has imprinted their stamp on the world unlike any other musical collective in recent times.

Miles and company blend into a unified system of brilliant luminance through Uprising. Kamasi Washington, Ryan Porter, Zane Musa, Dontae Winslow and the other L.A. horn players shout from the mountain tops; Brandon Coleman brings unrelenting funk on vintage keys; Cameron Graves displays his ethereal piano virtuosity, and Tony Austin holds it down with equal measure on drums and the production/engineering chair.

Uprising is Miles' personalized take on the musical journey of his life, and that of his West Coast Get Down family. It stands as an impressive record of deep conviction and technical prowess, following the influences he has gained from legends such as Otis Redding and Jimi Hendrix. Every lyric, rhythm, melody and harmony from Uprising comes from the deepest reserves of Miles' soul and the experiences he has endured over the last two decades in the music industry: "I wanted to create a work that was natural and intimate, but still maintained a sense of grandeur." Miles explains. "As if you were best friends with a giant. The West Coast Get Down, the Strings, the Choir; I sought to utilize all of these elements together to create something with memorable melodies and a message to the people that we are here for them. We are and want to be the loudspeaker for their hearts."

The album demonstrates Miles' vision and scope, traversing through stunning vocal cadences and complex music arrangements with scorching horn lines, innovative bass solos, thought-provoking lyricism and an overall dynamic that bleeds with the lineage of the West Coast Get Down. It showcases tracks reminiscent of the best that pop, jazz, blues, funk and soul have to offer.
