Stoke-on-Trent singer/ songwriter Humphrey Milles performs his beautiful new piano track 'Breathe' live at the Regal Rooms in West London. He will release the song as a B-side on his upcoming single 'Not Enough' scheduled for released on October 22nd 2012. It is now available for free digital download on Soundcloud but will not feature on his forthcoming album 'Tall Stories', due out in February 2013.
The track is slow and melodic with a simplicity and tenderness that could put it in a 'depressing' song category, though it is anything but. It's definitely one to put smiles on faces rather than erase them.
Milles returns following an unfortunate downward spiral that he found himself in even after a promising start to his music career. He performed alongside the late Grammy winner Amy Winehouse as well as KT Tunstall, Snow Patrol and Mercury Prize nominee Ed Harcourt before a record deal went down the drain and he had to have treatment on his throat after an attack. He spent his time surfing in Costa Rica and writing music and now has a wonderfully poetic masterpiece to show for it, produced by Ed Harcourt himself who was 'flattered' when his help was requested. 'Humphrey writes songs that are crammed full of the catchiest melodies, the most infectious hooks and lyrical twists and deserves to be No 1 across the globe', he said.
