The mastermind of Edmonton based singer/keyboardist Graham Guest and Toronto actor-musician Raoul Bhaneja, the pair are touring The Legendary Miles Johnson across the nation in support of their new release of the same name. The amorphous country-blues-roots group changes size and lineup for each performance, representing Guest and Bhaneja’s diversity of musical vision.
