Myles Kennedy is a singer, songwriter and guitarist best known for his work in Alter Bridge.

Over time, he caught the attention of Slash from Guns N' Roses, who asked him to be a part of his solo record in 2010. From those songs, Slash and the Conspirators were born. Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppellin even wanted him to front a project they wanted to do, but sadly that project fell through. This guy is in demand for good reason.

Myles recently released his solo acoustic album, "Year of the Tiger". The music was personal and tackled issues with the loss of his Dad at an early age. Myles has wanted to do this album for a while, so he stepped back on his own and felt the time was right.

Myles Kennedy is currently supporting the music of "Year of the Tiger “on tour doing a handful of his solo acoustic dates. This raret Pacific Northwest show was held at the Crocodile in Seattle. This was a special one for him as it brought Myles back to the Crocodile for the first time in 17 years since his early days in the Mayfield Four. This show would feature his new solo songs but would also include songs from first band the Mayfield Four, Alter Bridge, Slash and even a few covers. Stories behind the songs were shared giving the fans a deeper insight into his songwriting and Myles even took requests from fans.

The songs of the "Year of the Tiger" may have come from a place of pain, but this Storytellers like show took Myles to a better place. The connection he made with his fans in this intimate setting made for quite a night.
