45 years, 11 Juno nominations, 16 studio albums, 15 compilation albums, 9 live albums and 34 singles; APRIL WINE is iconic and eternal. Immortal hits “Oowatanite”, “Like A Lover, Like A Song”, “Sign of The Gypsy Queen”, “Roller”, “Tonight Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love” and “Just Between You and Me” led the band’s induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame (2009), receiving The Lifetime Achievement Award (2009) and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (2010). The phenomenon that is APRIL WINE cannot easily be summed up in a few words.

It all began in Nova Scotia 1969 with a name chosen simply because they were two words that sounded good together. Thousands of concerts later APRIL WINE has become enormously popular in Canada, the United States and throughout the world. “You Could Have Been a Lady” (1971), was #1 in Canada and spent 11 weeks on Billboard’s Top 30. Fan favorites “Weeping Widow”, “Just Like That” and “Lady Run Lady Hide” followed by the hit “I Wouldn’t Want To Lose Your Love” pushed the band into platinum status. “The Whole World’s Goin’ Crazy” and “She’s No Angel” continued the hit parade. First Glance (1979) made APRIL WINE an international success, spending 11 weeks on Billboard’s 200 Album chart. The single “Roller” hit Top 30 U.S.A. and Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles chart for 11 weeks. Power songs “I Like To Rock”, “Say Hello”, “Crash And Burn”, “Anything You Want You Got It”, “Enough is Enough”, “If You See Kay” proved there was still plenty of “Wine” to go around! They continue to satisfy their fans with a live mix of straight ahead rock n’ roll and power ballads, an APRIL WINE mainstay.

Through the ups and downs and the changing faces of the band, the one thing that has remained constant is Myles Goodwyn. His passion and drive have shaped and directed the group from its earliest beginnings. Myles is the classic “small town kid makes good” success story. He honed his skills with the likes of East Gate Sanctuary and Woody’s Termites. The result is the unique, classic rock voice that gives April Wine its distinct and instantly recognizable sound. From hard rock classics to soulful ballads, Goodwyn’s vocal range and style grab a hold of you from the opening note. Having penned virtually every song in their repertoire, Myles’ way with words and uncanny ability to write a catchy tune at will are in abundant evidence. Even today, with their latest release, his voice is as strong and apparent as ever. The choice of songs he’ll play on any given night will be dictated by how he feels, the type of venue and the audience. And yes . . . he’ll take requests. Says Myles, “The evening is first and foremost an APRIL WINE show, that won’t change. That’s still my main priority.”
