Myles Jéh is a charismatic singer/rapper/songwriter and Springfield, Massachusetts native. His passion for music began at an early age. Myles Jéh used to perform at open mic nights to feed his ambition for music. He started releasing music in 2013 and since then has been growing his reputation as a smooth Hip-Hop/R&B artist like no other. A few performance highlights include performing on BET Network's 106 & Park, sharing the stage with Jennifer Hudson, and opening up for Kirstin Maldonado of Pentatonix.

Equipped with a dynamic sound and bass-filled beats, Myles Jéh’s newest single “Ride” is sure to have you vibing along. Myles’ vocals are deep and hypnotizing. His smooth flow and flawless bars can be accredited to his years of experience and raw talent. His vulnerability is evident in the track as he describes a bad relationship with a cheating woman, my favorite lyric is when karma hits this girl n the face when Myles Jéh spits, “I heard your man cheats… How it feel?”. This line has be jumping out of my chair! The storytelling aspects of this track have me addicted from start to finish. “Middle of the night with your lies out, only a matter of time til I find out” is another notable line in this dope track, taking the theme of lies and deceit to another level. I think that Myles Jéh is incredibly talented and skilled at connecting with his fans. He writes lyrics that speaks to the listeners and music for anyone to vibe to. No stranger to success, the single “Ride” is yet another big step in the right direction for Myles Jéh.

Hi Myles Jéh! Can you start by telling us more about yourself and your upbringing into music?
My earliest memory with music is standing in front of the television and trying to copy the artist, from dance moves to singing. However, I've been told that my love for entertaining came prior when I would climb into a record player console to dance; the music wasn't even turned on. Beyond that, I started writing lyrics and keeping everything to myself until 2013 when I released remixes. By 2015 I released my own project called 'Mylestones' and have been performing ever since. Outside of my own music, I am also a choreographer/dancer, professional model, artist manager, and creative director.
Who are you musical influences? Why?
I enjoy listening to so many artists, but I credit Brandy, Usher, Missy Elliott, and Lyfe Jennings for being the people who inspired me to write and be creative. These artists all had their own style, sound, and always seemed like they weren't competing with anyone else; just staying true to who they were. I wanted to sing like Brandy, dance like Usher, attract an audience like Missy and write like Lyfe.
What is the meaning behind the lyrics in “Ride”?
What is done in the dark will always come to the light. 'Ride' is about having the suspicion that your partner is cheating, but finally catching him or her in the act and there is no way out of the situation than to own up to it. Anyone who has been cheated on may have heard the excuses used to make you feel like you're paranoid or overthinking things, only to find out later that you were right all along; 'Ride' is the song that you can relate to.
What’s your favorite lyric? Why?
"Got in too deep and now it's getting real, I heard your man cheats...how it feel?"
This lyric presents the concept of karma and how the cheater became the cheated. The pause between "I heard your man cheats" and "how it feel?" was intentional and my way of letting it all sink in before asking a simple question that packed a powerful blow. In a way, it's like getting revenge without having to do anything.
Can we expect a full EP in the near future?
I am working on a new project behind the scenes as I continue to release music digitally from the album "TWENTY-8" which 'Ride' is one of the singles. No date has been set, but music will continue to be released as the months continue, so subscribe and stay tuned!
