April Wine is a Canadian rock band formed in 1969. Originally based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the band enjoyed international success in the 1970s and 1980s, releasing more than 20 albums since 1971. In early 1970 the band relocated to Montreal.

Shortly after arriving in their new home, the band was signed by Aquarius Records; they recorded and released their debut album April Wine in September 1971. The album spawned their first single, 'Fast Train', which received fairly steady airplay on radio stations across Canada and established Myles Goodwyn as the band’s main songwriter. The single’s success led the band’s label to ask for a second album.

April Wine's extensive discography includes numerous gold and platinum selling albums featuring mega-hits like 'Roller', 'I Like to Rock', 'You Could Have Been a Lady' and others. Best known for their international top 40 hit 'Just Between You And Me', an iconic power ballad that made them the very first Canadian band on MTV, April Wine have received a combined total of 11 Juno Award nominations in the Group Of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best Selling Single categories. In 2010 April Wine was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, with Myles Goodwyn and Brian Greenway accepting the honor.
