Myles Goodwyn, singer, guitarist, writer, producer and leader of the multi-Platinum selling rock band April Wine, who shaped and directed the group from its earliest beginnings, has died at the age of 75.
April Wine has sold over 10 million recordings worldwide.
Myles Goodwyn’s voice is as distinctive and immediately recognizable as his song writing skills are prolific. Myles and the other members of April Wine were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame in 2010.
Goodwyn received the prestigious East Coast Music Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008 and the SOCAN National Achievement Award in 2002. In 2016 he released his memoir named, Just Between You and Me, which became an instant best seller on the Globe and Mail`s Non-Fiction List. His second book, Elvis and Tiger (fiction) was published in 2018 and was also very well received.
The Myles Goodwyn and Friends Of The Blues recording released in 2018, it earned international acclaim and a JUNO nomination for Blues Recording of the Year in 2019. The recording won the ECMA award for Blues Recording of the Year in 2019. His follow up blues recording that year, Myles Goodwyn and Friends of the Blues 2, won the same blues category in 2020.
Brian Tremblay interviewed Myles in June of 2022.
For Brian, this episode rocks: It’s always a thrill when I get to talk to some of my rock star heroes when I was growing up – and Myles Goodwyn is one of them! I spoke to Myles as he was headed out to his cottage on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, about to boil up some lobsters. We talk about his new YouTube channel, how he had been spending his time during the great lockdown, the ‘ah-ha’ moment when he knew he was going to be a musician for the rest of his life, and his inspired new album, ‘Friends Of The Blues 2.’

I Can See For Myles (part 2) – More from Brian with Myles: Myles and I discuss some of the great, fun tunes on the ‘Friends of the Blues 2’ album, his take on The Cadillac’s theme song, ‘Speedo (Revisited),’ the best advice he got about being in the music business, and that he was once thinking of going into the air force to design planes. And, I finally got to ask the man himself about the genesis of the fire alarm bell at the beginning of April Wine mega-hit, ‘Oowatanite.’
