(Andy Desmond)

Miten is a British musician born in Woking, Surrey, August 1947.

He founded the folk/rock duo Gothic Horizon with musical partner Richard Garrett in the 60s. The band released two albums on Decca: The Jason Lodge Poetry Book and Tomorrow's Another Day. In 1970 Miten began performing solo and became part of a stable of folk musicians which was signed by Ray Davies to his record label Konk Records. Miten subsequently released Living On A Shoestring on Konk, featuring members of The Kinks and produced by Dave Davies and fellow Kink member, keyboardist John Gosling. During this time Miten became established in the UK as a singer/songwriter of note and was subsequently signed to Ariola Records in London. Ariola released Andy Desmond - an album containing 10 self composed songs, produced by legendary Los Angeles producer, Bones Howe. At the time of its release Miten had become a stalwart on the British rock scene, opening for Fleetwood Mac, Randy Newman, Hall and Oates, The Cate Brothers, The Kinks and many others. He was invited by Fleetwood Mac to be their special guest on their UK Rumours Tour, and opened for Ry Cooder on his 1978 European tour.

Disillusioned with the rock world and the life style, Miten went on to explore meditation and Eastern philosophy. He took Sannyas in 1980.

Miten now tours the world with his musical and life partner, Ma Deva Premal, whom he met in Poona in 1988.

Deva & Miten's record company, Prabhu Music, reports CD sales of over 900,000 and the couple travel the world continually, playing in up to 25 countries in the space of a year.
