Miles To Go
Miles To Go is a band from Columbia, South Carolina. With influences ranging from Billy Joel to Metallica, from Pink Floyd to Radiohead, they explore many different styles in their original music. The songs are largely written as key-driven rock, using strong vocals and guitar leads. The band moves seamlessly between cleverly crafted lyrically driven music into straight up heavy driving rock.
