Biography

Miles Axe Copeland III is an articulate and charismatic businessman, entrepreneur and influencer, with a track record of being at the forefront of innovation in the music and entertainment industries. His constant focus on evolution and revolution is dominant throughout his varied and successful career, which spans five decades and is littered with household names.

From being at the centre of the British ‘progressive rock’ and ‘punk rock’ scenes in the late sixties and seventies, to launching record labels and managing hugely successful bands and musicians such as The Police, Sting, Squeeze, REM and The Bangles, Miles spent over thirty years working with artists who dominated the charts in the US, the UK and across the world.

His inspiring ability to manage and grow talent, identify and influence changes in the market, and develop highly creative and innovative promotional strategies has resulted in countless hit singles and albums, Grammy Awards, and Gold and Platinum records, as well as some surprising but hugely successful collaborations. Meanwhile, his latest series of live touring projects has focused on creating a brand that can operate successfully with whatever artists might be available at any given time, creating both ownership and longevity for each concept.

Miles’ entrepreneurial approach has enabled him to find solutions when routes to market were closed, or evolve his business model when the internet fundamentally changed the industry. His experience and vision have led to numerous speaking engagements for companies including Motorola, HSBC Bank, Vanderbilt University, The University of California, The Grammy Organization and a host of music associated media.

Miles spent his childhood and adolescence moving between the US, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon. His mother worked for British intelligence and his father was in US Army counter intelligence as well as being a founder member of the CIA. Miles’ cultural awareness and global outlook have been a common theme throughout his career, which has included boosting the popularity of Arab music and dance in the US, as well as advising the Pentagon on how to ‘win hearts and minds’ following the invasion of Iraq.

Trump, Iran, Russia and China

China would like to back a candidate that is bad for the US but good for China but sees neither in Biden or Trump. Instead they see Trump as bad for China AND bad for the US and Biden as good for the US and at least not bad for China so prefer Biden to Trump for that reason. Russia likes Trump because he is bad for the US and bad for China which is also why North Korea is for Trump. Iran is under no illusion that either will be good for Iran but hate Trump no matter what. The Europeans think Trump is an idiot. The Asians are of mixed feelings as they worry about China.

There is something I dont understand Mr President. On one hand you say we were doing so well economically - best in history etc yet on the other you say all our international deals are terrible and everyone is ripping us off. How can both be true?

Israel

The unfortunate truth about the supposed peace between the Gulf states and Israel is that both will change their minds when they get what they want - the Gulf more US arms and Israel when the settlers pressure the government for more territory on the west bank. Peace? bullshit!
