Biography

Miles Gilderdale (born in Kingston, Jamaica[1]) is a member of smooth jazz group Acoustic Alchemy and plays the steel-string acoustic guitar and electric guitar.
In 1996, Gilderdale became a member of the contemporary jazz group Acoustic Alchemy and has collaborated on five releases, including 2001’s Grammy nominated AArt. Gilderdale contributed to the group’s 1998 release Positive Thinking… and was selected by Greg Carmichael for the steel string acoustic chair which was left vacant by the passing of the group’s original founder, Nick Webb.

A seasoned guitarist and performer, Miles Gilderdale first became known in the UK and Europe to audiences in the 1980’s as the lead singer and guitarist in York/Harrogate-based soul band Zoot and the Roots which also included the sax player Snake Davis. He has worked on stage with artists as diverse as Ben E. King, Ronnie Wood, and Jools Holland, as well as having done live BBC Radio 1 broadcasts and TV appearances.
When not touring with Acoustic Alchemy, he can be often spotted gigging around the North of England with The Blueflies, a funk/blues outfit composed of Miles, ex-Zoots bassist and co-songwriter Gavin Ewing and drummer Trevor ‘Fatha’ King. While allowing Gilderdale to take flight on solos, The Blueflies hard-edged funk blues sound is in contrast to his ‘smooth jazz’ solo work and performances with Acoustic Alchemy.
