New Miles Tackett (Breakestra)
New album from Miles Tackett, the main man behind LA's Breakestra.
"The new solo album from Miles “Music Man” Tackett, The Fool Who Wonders, is a guitar-centric, soulful collection of new vintage sounds. As founder/leader of the Breakestra, Tackett has been busy writing, producing, and performing the funk and soul-jazz sounds that have shaped the Los Angeles underground funk scene for over a decade.
On his new solo release, recorded on analog tape at New Tilt Studio in Los Angeles, Tackett’s master skills as a songwriter, guitarist, vocalist, producer, and engineer are at the forefront as he warmly weaves together soul, & jazz-bluesy psychedelia with the funky soul sounds he is known for.
“Just What I Need” is the first single featuring Tackett on vocals, guitar and keys. Fans of Tackett’s previous projects or even his weekly all-vinyl DJ sets at FUNKY SOLE will all find something unique in The Fool Who Wonders
Release date: 08 July (CD/digital), LP out early August
