    Miles Peter Kane (born 17 March 1986) is an English musician, best known as the co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets and former frontman of The Rascals. He was formerly the vocalist and lead guitarist for The Rascals, but announced the band's break-up in August 2009.

    He is currently pursuing a solo career, and continues to be a part of his side-project The Last Shadow Puppets.

    Aged 18, Kane joined The Little Flames as guitarist alongside Eva Petersen (Vocals), Greg Mighall (Drums), Joe Edwards (Bass) and Mat Gregory (Guitar) in December 2004. The band went on to be vaguely successful, achieving comparisons to The Coral and high profile fans such as the Arctic Monkeys. They also went on to tour with bands like The Coral, The Zutons, The Dead 60s and Arctic Monkeys. However, the band decided to go their separate ways following a dispute with their label over their musical direction.

    Kane, on vocals and lead guitar, was joined by Greg Mighall on drums and Joe Edwards on bass guitar and occasional backing vocals. Kane has taken the main songwriting duties for the band. The band who had known each other from childhood, continued where The Little Flames had left off, still signed with Deltasonic Records, only with less members this time. They were adamant to keep their own distinct sound of 'awesome rockin beats' with a 'psychedelic quirk' and a 'compelling and unique dark underlying spirit'1. They released their debut EP in December 2007, just 7 months after they got together. Entitled Out of Dreams it featured 4 tracks, but did not achieve chart success. Yet they soon became tipped to be one of the bands of 2008, championed in particular by NME, following a well received support slot on Arctic Monkeys' 2007 tour. Their first album 'Rascalize' was released on 23 June 2008. The Rascals have a small role in the film Awaydays playing an Echo & the Bunnymen cover, Miles also has several lines such as "Sorry, I have to help the guys with the gear." He left The Rascals in August 2009.

    Whilst touring with the Arctic Monkeys, Kane developed a strong friendship with front man Alex Turner. They shared a love of the same musical influences, such as Nick Cave. The pair began to play together backstage, and soon began writing new tracks. They realized that there was a future in their songwriting partnership, and the Last Shadow Puppets were born.

    The duo decided to travel to the West Coast of France with producer James Ford where they recorded their debut album The Age of the Understatement in just two weeks. Their album went straight to number 1 in the UK Album Charts with the single of the same name reaching number 1 in the Indie Single Charts, and subsequent singles also reaching high spots. They first played together live in the UK, doing a secret set at Glastonbury with a special guest appearance from Jack White, whom Kane lent his iPod to so White could learn the solo. The band's album narrowly missed out on the Nationwide Mercury Music Prize, but thus far they have won the Mojo Breakthrough Award, and have also been nominated for various other accolades.

    After his last tour with The Rascals, in early 2009, Miles Kane has left the band to focus on a solo career. He then signed with Columbia Records and began recording his solo album working with Gruff Rhys and Dan The Automator, who had previously worked with Gorillaz and Kasabian.

    On 4 October 2010 Miles Kane announced his debut single "Inhaler", released on 22 November 2010, and solo shows, some of them supporting The Courteeners. On 24 November 2010 he revealed that Noel Gallagher sings on his forthcoming solo album (on a track called My Fantasy) - while Kane plays guitar on the ex-Oasis man's forthcoming solo effort.

    His first solo album Colour of the Trap is due to 9th May 2011 and his second single Come Closer (single) was released on 21 February 2011.

    In January 2011 he was confirmed as the support act on the first eight dates of Liam Gallagher's new group, Beady Eye. As well as this it was later announced that he would be supporting Arctic Monkeys on their two date residency at the Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield. Kane is acting as the main support.
