"The beginnings of a very exciting new age of theatre... St. Anne is a marvel" - A Younger Theatre on St. Anne Comes Home
"Music is most emphatically, the strongest weapon in Mr. Miles’ armoury; there are some terrific songs in this piece" - The Spy in the Stalls on The Problem with Fletcher Mott
Jack Miles has been composing music for over ten years. In 2018, he was awarded a Master’s degree with Distinction in Musical Theatre Writing from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Current projects include: St. Anne Comes Home, Adeline and The Problem with Fletcher Mott.
St. Anne Comes Home received its debut as part of Iris Theatre’s Summer Season in 2020. This folk musical about community, friendship and compassion played sold-out performances outdoors in the garden of The Actor’s Church. Produced by Willow Walk Productions, it will return in 2021.
The Problem with Fletcher Mott, a funk-pop musical about a struggling playwright, was composed as part of his Master’s degree. The show received a sold-out independent production in 2019, and is currently in further development.
Adeline explores the struggle to find true happiness in the age of millennial burnout, and uses a light jazz score. It will premiere at Venue 45 at the Edinburgh Fringe 2021, in a two-week run produced by Taxi Man Productions.
Alongside composing, Jack is a keen educator, and has worked with students at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) and Central School of Speech and Drama (CSSD) as a Musical Director and Guest Composer respectively.
Jack co-writes for the space western comedy fiction podcast The Kingfisher Chronicles. He also plays bass for singer-songwriter Matt MacGregor, as well as being a BBC Introducing-featured singer-songwriter himself.
He adores the creative work of Stephen Sondheim, Rik Mayall, and the Coen Brothers.
