Myles Goodwyn takes a stand and lends a hand with his poignant new single For Ukraine — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The award-winning April Wine frontman and Canadian Music Hall of Famer penned the track after seeing the country’s suffering amidst attacks from Russia.
“Like the rest of the world, I’m witness to the devastation and suffering caused by the needless war in Ukraine,” Goodwyn shares. “This painfully sad and tragic situation inspired me to write this song with the hope that it might encourage people to help the citizens of Ukraine who are so desperately in need of our help.”
On the track, Goodwyn’s immediately recognizable vocals and guitar are joined by Bruce Dixon on bass guitar and Scott Ferguson on drum programming. For Ukraine arrives ahead of Goodwyn’s forthcoming collection of all-new original songs, Long Pants, set for release this summer.
In addition to being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame with his April Wine bandmates in 2010, Goodwyn received the prestigious East Coast Music Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008 and the SOCAN National Achievement Award in 2002. His 2018 album Myles Goodwyn and Friends Of The Blues earned a Juno nomination for Blues Recording of the Year, and won the ECMA for Blues Recording of the Year. The following year he released Friends of The Blues 2, winning another ECMA for Blues Album Of The Year. In 2016, he released his memoir Just Between You and Me. His second book Elvis and Tiger — a work of fiction — was published in 2018.
