Java Blend: Miles Nielsen

Duration: 27:30 (Full Program)
Program: Java Blend #103
Broadcast Date: Sep. 27, 2010

Somewhere between a bar and the recording studio, singer and songwriter Miles Nielsen stirs up his own pop rock brand of Beatles-eque Cosmic Americana.

Miles has played and performed as vocalist / lead guitarist in many midwestern bands from past to present, "Harmony Riley", "HMS", and most recently, as a member in the Appleton, WI via Rockford ensemble, "Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons”.

With a father like power-pop mastermind Rick Nielsen of “Cheap Trick” at the helm of his music education, Miles Nielsen is poised to carry his family’s rich songwriting tradition well into the 21st century.

Iowa Public Radio’s “Java Blend” with Ben Kieffer serves up fresh-brewed performances and conversation with musicians from around the state and country. Recorded before a live audience at The Java house in downtown Iowa City, the shows offer an eclectic mix of live tunes from the vibrant independent music scene. Ben Kieffer infuses the performances with lively chats to find out about the artists’ music and lives.
