Arthur Miles (born November 14, 1949, Indianapolis, Indiana) is an American musician. He started his career as a singer at a very young age in Richmond, San Francisco. The influence of the music of his uncle, the great guitarist Wes Montgomery, and his father’s night club “Arthur’s” which allowed him to observe, absorb and jam with the most famous blues, jazz and soul artists of the time played an important part in his musical orientation.
Since the age of 14 he has played as a professional musician with his own bands. He perfected his singing technique at the School of Natural Voice at Los Angeles tutored by Patricia Warner, and contemporarily completed his formal studies in musical theory. He also majored in journalism at the Pasadena City College.
While in Los Angeles his bands included The Curb Feelers, Good Clean Fun, Days Band and Hardworking.
