Montreal-Based Midnight Miles Unleashes Soul-Stirring Rock And Blues New Single 'Like You Wanna Do'

By Eric Alper.

Midnight Miles, the authentic back-to-roots, blues-based rock 'n' roll band from Montreal, Quebec, is thrilled to announce the release of their highly anticipated new single, "Like You Wanna Do".

The 5-piece vintage rock band’s latest release is a soul-stirring, rock 'n' roll anthem with electrifying sound, raw emotion, and relentless passion. “In writing Like You Wanna Do, we wanted to encapsulate the longing to feel unburdened,” said lead vocalist and songwriter – Ryan Setton. “Many of us are just trying to be the truest versions of ourselves, and nobody should ever feel like they're being judged or prosecuted for that.”

Setton further explains the meaning behind the band’s latest track: “Like You Wanna Do is all about living in the moment and having the integrity and courage to do your own thing, your own way, in spite of any resistance you may’s meant to inspire us to embrace our individuality.”

Released in May 2023, the album "Steal Away", where the title was taken from the first line of their song "Last Time", highlights Midnight Miles' diverse range of influences and styles. Each track on the record embodies an original sound, resulting in a melting pot of R&B, soul, blues, and jazz elements. Produced and mixed by the band's very own drummer, Justin Wiley, the EP captures the essence of Midnight Miles' musical prowess and their collective commitment to creating a sound that is clearly their own.

The uniquely soulful rock ‘n’ roll band consists of Ryan Setton, Justin Wiley, Shaun Ryan (bass), Jesse Ray James (guitar/backing vocals) and Peter Grant (guitar/backing vocals). Armed with soaring vocal harmonies, loud guitars and upbeat infectious grooves, they're on a mission to take listeners for a wild ride.
