The Myles of Smiles Music Mentorship Project began as a series of open mic sessions stimulating growth and activity in the local music scene. In 2018, the society launched the Open Mic initiative offering emerging musicians and BC’s next generation of talent opportunities to grow and develop their skills. Popping up in relaxed comfortable settings in historic Fort Langley, including Maria’s Gelato in spring 2019 and moving to outdoor locations throughout the village during the summer season, the sessions grew with a local following of talented musicians joining in on a regular basis.
With projects ranging from in-person Open Mic sessions, Village Jams and Music Showcases to the regular programming of the Online Edition, the Myles of Smiles program continues to foster growth in the local music industry and to develop BC talent focusing on collaborations with industry partners and community stakeholders.
Creative Compass Society would like to thank all the local musicians and songsmiths who continue to share their talent with the community.
The Myles of Smiles Music Mentorship Programs are organized by Creative Compass Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect emerging talent with community partners fostering shared learning opportunities across all arts disciplines. The Myles of Smiles Music Programs are inspired by Myles Jordan Seib, who passed away from complications of a brain tumour at the age of 29. Myles, a multi-talented musician who shared his music, smile and love through connections made throughout his life, is the spirit behind the music.
