Myles Goodwyn and Friends of the Blues is nominated for Blues Album of the Year. This is Myles Goodwyn’s fourth JUNO Award nomination.
Myles Goodwyn’s voice is as distinctive and immediately recognizable as his songwriting skills are prolific. The singer, guitarist, writer, producer — not to mention leader of the multi-Platinum selling rock band and inductee into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, April Wine — he is considered a living music legend. Myles’ passion for the blues began in 60s, but the songs he wrote weren’t ever going to appear on an April Wine album. Instead, Myles saved them for the blues album he knew he was going to make, this album being its result. Some of the Friends joining Goodwyn on the release are; Jack de Keyzer, Garret Mason, David Wilcox, Amos Garret, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Joe Murphy, Frank Marino, Shaun Verreault, Bill Stevenson, Rick Derringer and more.Myles Goodwyn and Friends of the Blues shows, yet again, that Myles Goodwyn is not only a gifted rock musician, and a real blues man at heart.
Orcasound had the great pleasure of talking to Myles about the album and his career.
