Biography

Robert Miles was born to Italian immigrants Antonietta and Albino Concina in Fleurier, Switzerland.

Miles became proficient at playing the piano during his youth in Friuli (Italy), in the small town of Fagagna, where his family moved when he was still a young boy, and has been in the music scene since 1988. He worked as DJ in some underground Italian clubs and private radio networks and in 1990, he used his savings to establish his own studio and bought some second-hand equipment.

In 1994, Miles wrote his most famous dream trance work, Children. The single picked up steam slowly, and within two weeks of its official release in 1995, had sold more than 50,000 copies all over Europe and topped the charts in many countries. By 1997 Children had sold more than 5,000,000 copies Worldwide. It earned Miles platinum records in many countries. Also, Robert Miles is the only Italian artist to have won a Brit Award (Best International Male Newcomer 1997).

Miles’s next single was Fable, with vocals by Fiorella Quinn. Part of this song was used in the theatrical trailer for the US movie, Ever After starring Drew Barrymore and Dougray Scott. His debut album Dreamland was released on June 7, 1996 in Europe, and released a few days later in the United States, with a new track, “One and One”, sung by Maria Nayler and written by songwriters Billy Steinberg, Rick Nowels and Marie-Claire D’Ubaldo. This new track became very popular and was later released as a single in the U.S. and Germany.
