Myles and Lenny were a Canadian folk-pop music group most active during the 1970s. The Toronto-based group was formed in 1969 by its principal members, Myles Cohen and Lenny Solomon and by 1972 was signed to GRT Records. However, it was after transferring to Columbia Records in 1974 that the group found success, particularly with its national top-20 single "Can You Give it All to Me".

At the 1976 Juno Awards, the group won in the category of Most Promising Group. However, disappointing sales of their second album led to the group's demise in the mid-1970s. Cohen and Solomon since released various separate music projects.
