BIO

Hailing from the town of Traralgon in Gippsland, Giles spent his youth recording rough demos of his work on a four-track in his bedroom. Urged by family to send his work out around the country, he was discovered by producer Tim Oxley (Roger Loves Betty) and invited to record at Oxley's home studio on the south coast of NSW. The resulting album 'Too Many Love Songs' managed to fill out Giles’ raw anti-folk sound with full and inventive instrumentation.

The follow-up was the second record '...Tells a Story', a concept album about love and life in Melbourne. Giles' raw almost-punk acoustic guitar style was the trademark of these home recordings, unadorned and full of emotion.

Drawing on a wide array of influences from the wit and lyricism of Paul Kelly and Darren Hanlon to the pop of Roxette, Giles' work references modern Australian life with understated charm. Listeners may also find some similarity with Triple J favourite The Bedroom Philosopher ('Songs from the 86 Tram') who Giles supported late in 2010 at the Northcote Social Club.

Giles continues to stamp himself on the Australian scene with support from local radio play on 3PBS and 3RRR in his adopted home of Melbourne, as well as street press coverage and a growing live reputation as a solo acoustic act. Armed with a guitar in one hand and a stack of CDs to flog in the other, Giles is ready for the mammoth task of winning the hearts of the world - one punter at a time.
