Hi Frederyck! Wonderful to see this live video of Alannah Myles. Was just reading the comments below and did not realize that she had the vertebrae problems and arthritis. She is a wonderful singer. Have a great day our friend! xx
DEAR FRIENDS, IF YOU WANT YOU CAN ALSO LISTEN AN OTHER RECENT TRACK BY ALANNAH MYLES - ON MY AUDIOS LIST or copy this link in your browser :
Thanks a lot for your support..;)
How many people have figured out that this song was written with Elvis Presley in mind? Myles was not the first singer to have a go at this tune but was the one that made it as popular as it became. It had four million radio plays in 2005 and at least that many on my old YouTube channel:))
Hallo Frederyck! just visited your new audio upload of Ms. Myles "Comment ça va". I never saw Alannah as much of a blues singer but her song "Black Velvet" made everyone sweat:)) Thanks for sharing both songs by this very versatile artist!
Magnifique spectacle de musique ....! ♪ ♪ ♫ ♪♫ ♪ ♫ ♪♫ ♪ ♫ ♪♫
@EuroGirl Thanks a lot for the comments dear Amanda. As you know I like a lot this beautiful artist and I feel sad to know she can't move her head normally (vertebras problems) and come on stage because of arthritis created by medical errors. The life's story of Alannah is very incredible and I simply wish now her last album -85bpm-, become with the time a huge success. Have a great and happy end of your day. Bizzzzz...)
@CrashZone2 Thanks for the comments dear Angie. To explain why Alannah has disappeared from the screen or almost, I know two points, 1 - as she explain in an interview "It has taken a minimum of 7 years to free myself from contractual obligations to other record companies in order to record my own premier independent release 85bpm.com." and 2nd point - It seems that she became so overtaken with the arthritis that was inflicted on her from a intensive use of chiropractor services, which has let her having huge problems with her cervical vertebras... (but that's not a certainty) ! That's all I know...
I wish you a very beautiful and happy end of your day. Bizzz..;)

Alannah Byles, a.k.a. Alannah MYLES, was born on 25 December 1958 in Toronto (Ontario - Canada). She is the daughter of william Douglas Byles (1914–1988) a great name in the Canadian broadcasting industry (inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' Hall of Fame in 1997). She was raised and grew up in Toronto where she studied to become a graphic artist, splitting time on her family’s ranch in Buckhorn (Ontario), listening to FM radio stations. Alannah began writing songs around age 9, and playing the guitar at 11. Actively performing she became a member of the songwriting group of Kiwanis Music Festival in Toronto at age 12. She also spent her early years competing as an equestrian on the Ontario A Circuit competing in Canada’s prestigious Royal Winter Fair. Alannah is a nice singer, songwriter in the Rock, Pop and blues music genres, and also actress.
At age 18, she began performing solo gigs in southern Ontario, where she met Christopher Ward, a WMG recording artist & songwriter. At age 19 she changed her name to become MYLES. With Christopher's help, she formed her band. As actress, she appeared in a 1984 episode of the television series -The Kids of Degrassi Street-. Her appearances in TV commercials paid for music demos which weathered countless rejections, until she recorded masters for 3 songs -Who Loves You-, a video demo for -Just One Kiss- directed by photographer Deborah Samuel. In fall of 1987, Warner Music Canada's director of artists and repertoire (A&R) Bob Roper sent the three-song video package to all of Warner Music Group's U.S. affiliates which garnered a seven-eight year contract from Atlantic Records (WMG).
In May 1989, Warner Music Canada released -Alannah MYLES- which produced 4 Top 40 hits, including -Love Is-, -Lover Of Mine-, -Still Got This Thing- and her N°1 classic rock hit, -Black Velvet-. In early 1990, U.S. single release of -Black Velvet- became a N°1 hit claiming ASCAP's most played song on radio for 1989 and 1990. By 2000, it had received ASCAP Millionaire Award for over 5 millions radio airplays. This track won Alannah the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Performance in 1991 and 4 Juno Awards : for Album of the Year - Single of the Year - Recording Engineer of the Year and Most Promising Female Vocalist of the Year.
