Peter Miles outs new music

EDGAR R. BATTE
When asked to define his style, Peter Miles says, "I do what comes from my inner heart. That is why I don't copy what's on the local market." And his music is unique and says it all. Born in a musical family, Peter Miles got inspired by his big brother, John Miles a.k.a Coco Banton whom he recognises for having shaped and made him. He introduced him to dancehall music, starting him off by teaching him how to play the bass and rhythm guitar plus the keyboard in addition to helping him perfect his vocal skills. Currently, a list of Uganda's top dancehall artistes is incomplete without his name. Peter Miles' music has also won him fame in the neighbouring Kenya where his One Time scooped the Best video award in Kenya's Kisima Awards in 2004. He was also nominated in the category of the best artiste from Uganda in the same year. Locally he has been nominated twice for best ragga artiste in the Pearl of Africa Music Awards, though he is yet to win.
Now, the Entebbe based star has something new coming out. You could have heard his latest single Love on the airwaves. He features his musical partner Menshan in this as well. "I am trying to put together an East African album and so far I have put out six tracks which include the gospel track Praise in which I feature Mr. Googz and Kristo Fabulous, Mukwano Gwa Bangi, Tanfako (Featuring Menshan), Muwala, Leya and another gospel track Yesu (featuring Kristo Fabulous)," Miles told It’s Friday. Peter Miles, who made his first recording Nakutaka way back in 2002, is also part of the talented artistes spotted by MTV base Africa. The local star has featured African star 2Face in the remix of his Rackus hit that he did with Navio. Courtesy of MTV base, Peter Miles anticipates collaborations with dancehall icons Beenieman and Wyclef Jean.
