Myles Francis Goodwyn (June 23, 1948 – December 3, 2023) was a Canadian musician. He was the lead vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter of the rock band April Wine. He released 16 studio albums with April Wine, and four albums as a solo artist. Goodwyn led the group from its inception and garage band roots to its multiplatinum sales peak. He received the National Achievement Award at the 2002 SOCAN Awards, an ECMA Lifetime Achievement Award, and was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. He was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame and the Canadian Music Hall of Fame as a member of April Wine.

Early life

Goodwyn was born on June 23, 1948, in Woodstock, New Brunswick.[1][2] He grew up in Waverley, Nova Scotia, and recalled hitchhiking to church on Sundays.[3]

Career

Goodwyn helped form April Wine in 1969, with David Henman (guitar), Ritchie Henman (drums), and Jim Henman (bass). He led the group from its inception and garage band roots to its multiplatinum sales peak.[4][5] Following the band's peak and commercial success during the 1970s and early 1980s, Goodwyn also pursued a solo career.[1]

In 2002, Goodwyn won the National Achievement Award at the annual SOCAN Awards held in Toronto.[6] In January 2003, he received an ECMA Lifetime Achievement Award for his impact on the music industry of Atlantic Canada.[7][8][9]

In March 2008, Goodwyn stated in an interview that he had been in the studio recording his second album Myles Goodwyn & Friends of the Blues. It was to be an all-blues album featuring guest performers such as Amos Garrett, David Wilcox, Frank Marino, Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne and Rick Derringer.[10] Goodwyn stated that the record was an opportunity to rediscover a passion for blues music, and that he was inspired by the music of Taj Mahal.[11]

In 2010, Goodwyn and April were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.[12][13] In 2016, his autobiography, Just Between You and Me, was released.[3][13] In 2018, his second book was published–"Elvis And Tiger".[13] His second album Myles Goodwyn and Friends of the Blues was released in 2018, and earned an ECMA award for "Blues Recording of the Year" in 2019. He subsequently released Myles Goodwyn and Friends Of The Blues 2 in 2019, which also earned the same ECMA award for "Blues Recording of the Year" in 2020.[13] In 2022, Goodwyn received the Singapore International Festival of Arts award for his song "For Ukraine", judged in the "best social impact music/art" category.[13]

On December 20, 2022, Goodwyn retired from touring with April Wine due to his diabetes and poor health. As of 2022, Goodwyn was the only original member of April Wine to be active with the band.[12][13] He continued to write material for the band, and gave his final live performance with April Wine on March 2, 2023, in Truro, Nova Scotia.[3]

Goodwyn was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2023, and April Wine was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in 2023. During his career, April Wine sold more than 10 million albums, and were nominated 11 times for Juno Awards. Goodwyn felt that his induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame was his greatest achievement.[3]

Personal life and health issues

Goodwyn was raised in Nova Scotia, then lived in Quebec for decades. Later in life, he lived in the Halifax area.[3] He was married to a Jewish wife, and their son also had diabetes. Aside from music, Goodwyn enjoyed golf.[11]

He had abused alcohol, then collapsed and nearly died from internal bleeding in 2008. After months of rehab, he committed to publishing his autobiography. He retired due to health concerns in March 2023, no longer wanting to travel frequently.[3] He died at age 75 on December 3, 2023, in Halifax.[1][3]
