Both singers will play Glasgow on Monday, with Miles selling out the Barrowland and Rod opening the Hydro.
And there's an unusual connection for the two, with sharply dressed man Miles liking the look of the former Faces frontman's clobber.
"I'm a massive fan of Rod," he says.
"I met him when filming Alan Carr's TV show, and I'd seen pictures of him in a red leather suit on.
"I got a massive buzz off it, and he said 'ah, you can have that, I've got all these old clothes in storage'.
"I thought nothing of it and then his PA rang me to ask for my address to send the suit to.
"I got excited for about two months, but then they phoned me back to say that he couldn't find it after all. He's a really nice fella, though."
Everything else in the former Rascals singer's career is fitting nicely, though.
Second album Don't Forget Who You Are was released earlier this year, a rattling record of rapid indie rock that featured guest appearances by the likes of Paul Weller and former XTC man Andy Partridge.
While Miles was initially nervous about working with such legends, the collaborations worked out well.
"I was definitely nervous working with both Paul and Andy on the first day," he says.
"But I'd spent so much time with them, especially over the past year [before recording], that I'd become friends with them, especially Paul.
"Now that we have built a relationship I can see us doing more stuff together.
"You can do some stuff with friends and it doesn't work or it feels weird, but this was just like hanging out with your mates and you ended up with a tune at the end of the day."
Clocking in at barely over a half hour, Don't Forget Who You Are suggested a man in a hurry, with a lot to get off his chest.
It's an album that Miles feels was inspired by his non-stop touring before heading into the studio.
"I just wanted to make a rock 'n' roll record that people can rock out to," he explains.
"I had all this energy and I wanted every tune to be banging.
"It's a record to play live and all the tracks we have been playing so far translate so well to gigs.
"The type of songs I was writing were very straight to the point, angry and on all these tunes you have got to be up for it.
"To hit those notes that are at the top of your range and get the power of them, you can't be half-hearted in the studio, you've got to be in the zone and I loved that."
NOW he is set for a sold-out Barrowland show, with tickets being snapped up so quickly the 27-year-old was asked if he wanted to switch to a bigger venue.
"I have always had a lot of love in Scotland and T In The Park was one of my favourite reactions all summer," he says.
"We played the Barrowland last year and it was rocking - they asked this time if we wanted to upgrade the venue but I said 'no, I want the place going off'. It's banging there and so is the live set, it's going to be like a rave."
Despite his current music being all about pressing the accelerator down, Miles seems interested in exploring new ideas in the future.
While he's previously teamed up with Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys for their Last Shadow Puppets side-project of lush pop, it's now soul that intrigues the Merseyside man.
"I am just trying to figure the next album out," he says.
"I'm definitely on a soul vibe at the moment, I like the idea of a record with lots of sexy, soulful grooves and sounds. I don't mean a big band record, but something a bit different, more in a Bobby Womack way."
Whatever direction he takes, it's unlikely the singer will get too big for his boots.
He might now be dating MTV presenter Laura Whitmore and regularly be acclaimed for his style but, as the album title suggests, he's not looking to forget his roots.
"The album title's a reminder, to me and anyone else," he says.
"When you are with a lot of people and seeing a lot of things, you see people going off on tangents with how they act, and I never want that to happen to me.
"It's easy to happen but that's something I never want to get into. I just need to keep busy and hopefully that day will never come."
