Alannah Myles, born December 25, 1958 in Toronto, Ontario, is a Canadian singer-songwriter. She is the daughter of Canadian broadcast pioneer William Douglas Byles (1914-1988), who was inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' Hall of Fame in 1997. After deciding to pursue a career in entertainment at the age of 19 she changed her last name to Myles. After more than a decade of modelling and acting in TV commercials to pay for music demos, she weathered countless rejections in her home country of Canada before recording masters for three songs which included "Who Loves You" accompanied by a video of "Just One Kiss" directed by photographer, Deborah Samuel and matched financing from songwriting collaborator and Much Music (City TV), DJ and program director, Christopher Ward (songwriter) and FACTOR. They were no longer an item prior to their search for major label support, signing her first record contract with Atlantic Records in 1987.
