Groove-based Rock, Reggae, Jam

From the suburbs of Philadelphia, with sounds infecting the East Coast and beyond, Long Miles brings you melodies from a light heart. The band likes to shine in their own way, bringing good vibes to people wherever they take the stage. With heroes like Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, Steel Pulse, and G. Love & Special Sauce, Long Miles strives to feed the need for the groovy, bouncy, feel-good tunes that make these groups so well known.

Long Miles has come a long way since their self-produced LP, 405 Productions, recorded in their freshman college dorm room in Charleston in 2009. They recorded A Philadelphonic EP with Chris DiBeneditto (G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid, the Movement) at Philadelphonic Studios in Philadelphia, with a November 2010 release. This March they released their latest album, Shades, recorded with Rick Beato (Trey Anastasio, NeedToBreathe, The Movement) at Black Dog Sound Recording Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

Long Miles takes a major sonic leap forward with Shades. The album showcases their exploration of new reggae-tinged textures and jam band-influenced song arrangements, while continuing to define their signature blend of inventive lyrics and tight, dance-inducing rhythms. With tunes on the radio and consistent crowds at live shows, their potential to be a major influence on the scene can be found at every listen, and Long Miles is ready for the world.
