The Ides of March Tour: Myles Kennedy with Tyler Bryant.
As the world slipped into lockdown at the onset of the Global Pandemic, Myles simply “marched down to Guitar Center, picked up a brand-new Universal Audio interface, went back home, and just started working.” He grabbed his guitar, wrote his heart out, and recorded demos at his home studio in Spokane, WA. After four months of demoing, he hopped in the car with his rhythm section, drummer Zia Uddin and bassist Tim Tournier and they drove over 3,000 miles to Studio Barbarosa in Orlando in order to record with longtime producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette.
Now, Myles introduces The Ides of March with the high-flying hook and groove-driven guitar of “In Stride.” A Texas blues lick rolls underneath upbeat verses before his vocals lift off on the unshakable refrain. A commanding riff thumps along with a bold beat on the opener “Get Along.” In between an immortal hook, Myles asserts on the bridge, “The answer in the end was never black or white,” before a melodic solo seals this impactful message in stone. Serving as a powerful centerpiece, the title track “The Ides of March” stretches over seven minutes and writhes through a delicate acoustic intro where his voice barely registers above a whisper as he cautions, “Beware the Ides of March.” Underpinned by unpredictable six-string sorcery, it segues from a lyrical lead into a fiery final crescendo punctuated by scorching shredding as he assures, “Cool heads prevail in times of change.”
