A native of Brooklyn, New York, Miles Griffith's musical roots emanate from the Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, A.M.E. and Yoruba ministries. However, he attributes his percussive vocal style to his Trinidadian roots. At age 11 he became a member of the esteemed Boys Choir of Harlem and after continuing musical studies Miles was chosen in 1994 by Winton Marsalis to play the lead role in his Pulitzer Prize-winning jazz oratorio, Blood On The Fields. In just a few short years, Miles Griffith's fearless approach to music has helped him to emerge as a serious contender on the modern jazz scene. Adept in any context, his organic style is adventurous, whimsical, fiery, heart-felt and always on the cutting edge.
