Miles Barnes


 Miles Barnes is a Montreal born and raised rapper who grew up in Ahuntsic, north of the island. More than just a rapper, he mixes-in his love of dance and theater to give originality to his performances, which makes each one of them a unique experience. Barnes developed his style starting in 2014 by attending open-mics and freestyle sessions, as well as competitions for aspiring artists. With Maestro Omayela’s help, Miles released his first mixtape in 2014: Miles Away, which caught the eye of established and emerging French-Canadian rappers. Around the same era, Miles metJah Maaz, current member of LaF, a group with which he collaborated to create a purely Montrealer EP:Jah-Miles–Ville Marie released in August, 2015. In 2017, Miles then released a surprise EP, Air Miles, assembling 5tracks. Within a few months, the artist continued to release singles, including collaborations with Kevin Na$h & FouKias well as Quiet Mike. 

In 2019, Miles participated in the Francouverte’s 23rd edition, which allowed him to further his network and meet David Campana. He also started dabbling in show production, organizing CED, an evening dedicated to his best friend. This non-profit event allowed him to raise funds for the GRIP (Groupe de Recherche et d'Intervention Psychosociale). After several performances, a writing trip to Europe and a year of professional training with theCarrefour des Arts de la Scène et de l’Entreprenariat), Miles is now back at it, more inspired than ever, with a new EP: YFW (Y FAUT WORK), produced by Clément Langlois-Légaré and Adel Kazi (Pops and Poolboy) from Clay and Friends, released on Hydrophonik Records.
