Miles Osland

Miles Osland has distinguished himself as an educator, recording and performing artist, author, arranger and composer. Currently the Director of Jazz Studies and Professor of Saxophone at the University of Kentucky, he has appeared throughout North, South America and Europe as a guest conductor, performer and clinician for Selmer Saxophones and Bay Woodwind mouthpieces. His compositions and arrangements, available through Walrus Music, have been recognized and supported by fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kentucky Arts Council, and by numerous other arts foundations.

Two of his recordings, Saxercise and My Old Kentucky Home, have been submitted for Grammy nominations by Sea Breeze Jazz Records, one of the most respected labels in jazz. His recording for Open Loop Jazz Records, An Old Speckled Hen at Snapes Malting, was inspired by his experiences while performing in England. The debut recording by the Osland Saxophone Quartet has been hailed by the Saxophone Journal as “a great example of the century of music to come”, and was featured on NPR's nationally syndicated classical radio show Performance Today. OSQ's sophomore effort has been released on the Sea Breeze label and is titled In the Land of Ephesus.
