Wauwatosa Rotary Foundation Inc. presents

Headliner: Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts

Miles Nielsen And The Rusted Hearts
For Miles Nielsen, every experience, every conversation, every dream is a potential song in the making. Miles’s songs breathe with a sense of yearning and ownership. You want to have another record, another song- you want to hit rewind…you want to know more about this world created in song by Mr. Nielsen A captivating wordsmith, instrumentalist, and creator of hooks- rare indeed, but present in the person of Miles Nielsen. There are very few people writing music that makes you immediately wish there was “more”- another song to make you turn up the volume, another nugget of melody or lyric that you can find some part of to make your own. Gifts like Miles’s come along very infrequently, and one can only hope that his ability to be so “in the now” -listening for the songs spoken in the everyday world, will continue to grow. Then maybe that “more” we are looking for, will be given to us all… in the songs of Miles Nielsen.

Opener: Kelly Steward

Kelly Steward
Kelly Steward is a Midwestern American singer, songwriter and recording artist hailing from Rockford, IL. Her haunting indie flavored neo-traditional country meditations are a favorite in this area of the country, a grass-roots musical movement from the state that brought you Wilco. After a few storied years in Los Angeles, Kelly moved back to the Midwest to record her EP “Long Long Road” with producer and fellow musician Miles Nielsen. Traveling and playing with Miles’ band for a couple years, Kelly broke off to form her own band The Restless Kind with Greg Whitson (guitar), Scott Ford (bass) and Jesse Carmona (drums). 2012 brought another EP “Out From Within” produced by Kelly and fellow band member Greg Whitson.
