About Myles Goodwyn

A multi-talented Canadian singer, producer, guitarist, and author, New Brunswick native Myles Goodwyn was a founding member and lead vocalist, guitarist, and main songwriter for the multi-platinum-selling rock band April Wine. Goodwyn spent his formative years honing his skills in cover bands, but he began writing songs very early in his career -- one of April Wine's most notable hits, "You Won't Dance with Me," was written when he was still in his teens. He led the group through its peak years -- 1970 to the early '80s -- before embarking on a solo career. He released an eponymous solo LP in 1988, and returned to lead April Wine in 1992, which he continued to do well into the 21st century. In 2018 he issued a sophomore solo effort, Myles Goodwyn and Friends of the Blues, which featured guest spots from a host of genre heavyweights, including Jack de Keyzer, Garrett Mason, David Wilcox, Amos Garrett, Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne, Shaun Verreault, Bill Stevenson, and Rick Derringer, among others. In addition to his musical output, Goodwyn has published a pair of books: a memoir (Just Between You and Me) in 2016 and a work of fiction (Elvis and Tiger) in 2018. ~ James Christopher Monger
