Taken By Sound Interview with Mylets
I’ve got an interview to share with you all that was actually done earlier in the year with Henry Kohen otherwise known as Mylets. Henry’s music was first recommended to me whilst conversing with a good friend about how I was trying to find an artist who was a creative cut above what I was listening to at the time.. What followed from that conversation was an intense binge of continuously watching Henry’s live performances on YouTube as well as a lot of headphone listening to his brilliant 2013 LP Retcon.
Henry’s over the top lyrical and instrumental style is complimented appropriately by his wild voice and genuinely intimidating guitar skills, this kid is absolutely set to be a trailblazer over the next few years, mark my words and enjoy the interview!
Firstly, I’d like to start off by saying thanks so much for being a part of taken by sound.. For those readers out there that haven’t heard of Mylets before.. Who are you, and what do you do?
I’m Henry Kohen and I have been writing and performing music under the name Mylets for a couple years now. My aim as Mylets has been to compose and perform everything by myself both live and in studio.
When did you get your start in music? And do you remember what your aspirations where before you ended up falling into being a full-time musician?
"Hungover Tehran" live from Montreal

SPREAD SESSION: Mylets Audio Interview and Live Videos from Vancouver
I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to see Mylets, aka Henry Kohen, in a live setting. He delivered a delightfully intense and impressive set at his last appearance in Montreal while on tour with TTNG and And So I Watch You From Afar. His ability to navigate back and forth from his guitar, his pedals, his vocals, and other various other tools is captivating. He definitely demonstrates great presence, especially considering that his last album, Retcon, is a solo project. I sat down with the young Sargent House prodigy to discuss his biggest experiences to date, the improvisation involved in his live looping techniques and their limitations, his guilt-driven writing approach, and what we can expect from him in the future. I must say that he is quite a cerebral, smart, and intense young man. One that many young solo artists look up to as a source of inspiration.

He picked up a slick sounding T5-12 and performed this acoustic version of his new song, “Retcon.” not to be confused with his album of the same name RETCON.
