Based in Southern Utah, Many Miles unique sound is best described as a blend of The Police, Amy Winehouse, Dave Matthews Band and Paul Simon. From funky indie-pop/rock to soulful acoustic grooves, Many Miles connects with a wide range of audiences though their passionate performances.
Many Miles was born from a one of a kind love story. Lead singer Dave Tate was writing and performing in Salt Lake City when he began a long-distance musical correspondence with Swedish singer Victoria Lagerström, who soon traveled from her native Sweden to write and record their first duo album. The two fell in love and were married three weeks after meeting on a sagebrush hill in Tate’s native home of Zion National Park. Lagerström never used her return ticket to Sweden.
Since then the couple's music has taken them across the western United States, often traveling with everything they owned in the back of their truck. After several albums, several sold out European tours as a duo, and honing their craft in the music scenes of Austin, Portland, and Salt Lake City, the couple returned to Tate’s native homeland of Southern Utah. There, with some of the best session players in Utah, Chris Flaig on drums, Ryan Tilby on Bass and Marco Blackmore on Sax, Many Miles was formed - a hybrid of pop/rock, soul, funk and folk, channeled through Tate’s pop sensibility and Lagerström’s soulful vocals.
