Concentrating on his solo career after some very respectable positions as sideman including work with Fillmore Slim and a stint with John Németh, the talented Northern California-based singer and guitarist A.C. Myles is set to release his second solo album, Produced by Kid Andersen at his Greaseland studio, Reconsider Me! spotlights Myles’s tough guitar playing and devastating singing. ‘Livin’ A Lie’ owes much to Johnny Winter’s flamboyant 1970s recordings, an anthemic, radio-ready chorus. Myles turns in a fierce and funky version of Rory Gallagher’s ‘Do You Read Me’. Myles’s powerful voice is well suited to these rocking numbers. The country soul classic ‘Reconsider Me’ by Johnny Adams is a show stopper… while the Tan Canary is often cited as one of the best pure singers to work in blues and R&B, Myles’s performance yields nothing. Subtle shifts in timbre give his voice a country feeling; his phrasing is devastatingly expressive; and his glides into falsetto during the choruses are breathtaking. – Tom Hyslop, / Blues Revue Magazine
