What: “Miles and Simone are sublime, Miles’s chocolaty deep voice sounds so perfect with Simone’s clear and sparkling sound.” Sometimes Melbourne
Enjoy a great night out with this heartbreaker duo playing country and folk songs. Miles and Simone are a music act with a difference. Their lilting melodies and harmonies will sweep you away. Miles and Simone boast immaculate harmonies and magic chemistry mixed with lyrical warmth and originality that make them a compelling duo, and the perfect night out.
When Miles and Simone sing, they cast a spell of lonesome roads and oceans filled with heartbreak. However, in between songs, their long friendship shines through and they find it hard to stop cracking jokes and telling stories.
Simone Page Jones and Miles O’Neil began recording songs in Miles’ spare room studio. They eventually put a rough mix of the album into the hands of Darren Hanlon when he took a loan of Miles’ wonky old piano. Hanlon liked the songs so much he took them to Portland, Oregon to be mixed by renowned engineer Adam Selzer (She and Him, M. Ward, Jolie Holland) at the famed Type Foundry Studios. As well as that, Darren Hanlon recruited a handful of talented Portland musicians to play on the record.
And so, Miles and Simone began hitting the road and haven’t stopped. They have since toured the country, most recently taking their songs all the way up to the Darwin Festival. Other shows have included, national tours opening for Clairy Browne and the Banging Rackets, the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Falls Festival, Brisbane Powerhouse World Theatre Festival and many headliner shows. They recently toured to country in support of their second album.
Miles O’Neil is a musician, actor and founding member of internationally renowned Junkyard band and performance group The Suitcase Royale. Simone Page Jones is an opera singer, cabaret star and creator of the critically acclaimed cabarets The Lovebirds.
