Brian Greenway

April Wine “stole” Brian away from his part time forklift job and added him to the group in 1977 during the recording of First Glance. A versatile performer, Brian’s raspy voice adds a distinct edge to the background vocals and provides perfect harmony with Myles’ equally distinctive lead vocals. Brian’s main duties are guitar and backing vocals, but also contributes to the song writing. Look for his Attic Dust Solo Show and Brian Greenway's Blues Bus at a venue near you!
