In the British rock scene of the 70s, Miten established himself as a noted singer/songwriter, releasing several albums including one for Ariola Records under the guidance of legendary American producer Bones Howe. He toured extensively, opening for Fleetwood Mac, Randy Newman, Hall and Oates, Lou Reed, Ry Cooder, Fairport Convention and The Kinks, among others. Life’s path changed its course and sent him to an ashram in India, where he experienced a life-changing awakening. It was there he met his life partner, Deva Premal, and they are now renowned worldwide for their fusion of western music with Sanskrit mantras.
His first solo English album in over a decade, Temple At Midnight is a soulful, no-frills, all-acoustic tale of love and redemption. As Miten puts it, “It’s an album that gives a voice to our intimate inner spaces, with songs that welcome us however they find us, sharing our fears, celebrating our joys and, through it all, reminding us of “the silence gently growing.”
From the steady flowing gospel groove of “River Man”; the Zen blues of “No Goal But This”; the mellow, reflective “One Step At A Time” and “Exactly As It Is (featuring Deva Premal), to the rays of moonlight illuminating the Rumi-inspired lyrics of “All Is Welcome”, Miten pays homage to a life lived fully and without compromise. He even adds, for good measure, a personal, hauntingly poignant rendition of the Beatles classic, “Norwegian Wood.”
