Wyn Anderson (died September 1999)[1] was a Canadian music manager, record producer and record label owner, most notable for his association with the Canadian band Thundermug.

History[edit]

Wyn Anderson was the original manager for the Canadian band Thundermug. Anderson noticed the band when it was playing in the Toronto bar circuit in the early 1970s.[2] It was through Anderson's initiative that the band obtained a recording contract with Axe Records in 1972,[1] through which the band enjoyed its greatest recording success. Anderson was dismissed as the band's manager around 1975, but became instrumental in the band reforming as of the end of the 1980s.[1] Anderson personally financed the band's later releases, in 1995 and 1997, on Raven Records, a label established by Anderson.[1] Anderson was the executive producer of the band's last album, Bang The Love Drum[2]

Anderson operated Raven Records from a farmhouse outside of London, Ontario.[3] Prior to Anderson's death, the principal artists on the label were Thundermug and reggae artist Gregory Isaacs.

Anderson died in September 1999, after a long illness.[2]
