MYLES HESKETT is a musician, painter, graphic artist and filmmaker based in Sydney.
Best known as drummer/co-founder of Grammy/ARIA-award-winning rock trio Wolfmother, he has been steadily plying his myriad trades since quitting the band in 2008. As a painter Myles approaches his art much the same way as his drumming - from the gut, and with an intriguing balance of restraint and primal catharsis-seeking instinct.
Recent adventures in sound have included Good Heavens (with Red Sun Band's Sarah Kelly), Machete Moon, Palace of Fire (with Charge Group’s Blackman) and The Slew (with Canadian turntablist Kid Koala) - each of these projects also featuring his Wolfmother bandmate Chris Ross. An electronic duo project with Blackman is in development, as is his first short film.
Myles has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the National Art School in Sydney and is responsible for the beautiful M&L logo and a number of Charge Group-related works: a ‘Run’ remix, the ‘Isobar’ T-shirt design, and the video for ‘The Jaguar Complex’. Myles has a passion for analog recording gear, old microphones and staying up way past his bedtime. There is a permanent wood-veneer space set aside for him on the Annual M&L Honour Board.
