A ‘storyteller’ performance that goes more in depth about the inspiration behind each song. ‘STRIPPED DOWN’ is a wonderful blend of acoustics, percussion and harmonies.
Rockford, IL-based Miles Nielsen has spent nearly a decade enthralling audiences with music that draws force from the prime years of Western-influenced rock music and classic ‘60s soul. Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts’ hot streak will continue this year with their third LP, Heavy Metal. The Rusted Hearts combine their sonic forebears into a style that’s entirely theirs, resulting in songs that boast layers upon layers of complexity under their irresistible surfaces.
“There are rock n’ roll gigs like the Hollywood Bowl and “Live at Budokan.” Then there’s the homespun itinerary of Miles Nielsen, son of Cheap Trick guitarist-vocalist Rick Nielsen. He plays an ethereal mix of pop and folk-rock that travels well.” — Chicago Sun Times
