Review: "One Trick Pony" - B.Miles
When you think of a one trick pony, you think of someone who is only ever good at one thing. They are stuck being known for only one specific moment in time; even if they try to be something else, no one ever notices. "One Trick Pony" by B.Miles is a vulnerable and relatable song about the fear of not being enough. The music industry is one of the toughest things to get into now-a-days, and for a while, one of B.Miles' biggest fears was being a one-hit wonder. After the incredible success she faced with her song 'Salt' in 2015 (gaining over 25 million streams on Spotify), B.Miles fell into a dark place where she didn't feel like she could top that moment in her career. "One Trick Pony" highlights those thoughts and feelings of being insecure about your success. You don't want to be a disappointment to your supporters or yourself.
Though B.Miles had this phase in her life that brought her down, she turned it into a positive with what she does best, and made this incredible new song. Though she is often described as an Alternative / Indie artist, I find that her sound is completely unique and her own. B.Miles herself feels her style is "genreless". I love the mixture of inspirations within her soundscape. "One Trick Pony" features verses that give off a RnB feel, highlighting B.Miles incredibly angelic falsetto vocals. When the chorus comes in, it's almost like the style changes completely and becomes more of a pop/rock vibe. B.Miles sings in the chorus as if she's speaking to us, and we're completely ready to listen.
B.Miles is a unique artist project created by Brenna Miles. Originally from Pasadena, California, B.Miles has taken her career to New York City for quite some years now. Singing ever since she was a little girl, she had written her first ever song in Kindergarten.
Now she co-writes with her songwriting partner, Eric Nizgretsky, who worked with her in creating her first ever album, "In Order of Appearance", which features her incredible single, "Worst Enemy". Brenna stays humble and works a typical day job, but always finds herself performing or working on new music in the evenings.
