“Genres in themselves don’t interest me. Good music made with passion and skill is what I love and there are no boundaries to that, it can be found anywhere…”
Myles Mumford pushes the envelope of expression in the audio realm. A prolific record producer, engineer and sound artist, Myles refuses to submit to genres, engaging in musical expression wherever he can.

"Myles Mumford is the producer of "My Script". It wouldn’t have happened, or at least happened the way it did, if it were not for him.
I met him a while back when he was the producing The Key of Sea volume II to benefit the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Human Rights Arts and Film Festival. I collaborated with political commentator and media star Waleed Aly on one of the tracks. Myles looked me up about a year later proposing we work together on an album. We met and I played him a bunch of sketches.
He immediately had ideas about them and importantly they were ideas I liked! Since then we’ve had about 20 sessions stretched out over nearly a year. We’ve become good friends over the course of things. I’ve subsequently learned that practically everyone in the Melbourne music community knows Myles and says he’s a great guy. He is" -Kim Salmon
