I am a local singer-songwriter. My personal style is a Jewel meets Adele. I also have about 5 hours of top 40 covers at my fingertips.

What to Expect
April takes you on a journey and escape at every performance she does. Whether it's a winter wonderland with holiday songs floating through the air, a speakeasy in the 1920's with swanky standards or fun and contemporary pop and country covers.
April has performed at venues big and small, from the Marquee Theatre to a quaint coffee shop to a wedding in a vintage opera house.
She will custom tailor the setlist to your needs for whatever the gig is.
April can also work with a backing band for a fuller sound, if need be.
April Anne is originally from Boston, MA but has called Arizona home since 1990.
April has been writing music and poetry since she could put a pen to paper. Her lyrics always come from a place that she knows, her life. She has lived major ups and downs and all are reflected in her music.
When she is in love she writes songs that could melt any man's heart, but when she's been hurt she writes lyrics that touch many deeply. She admits she has made many mistakes, but if given the opportunity wouldn't change a thing from her past, for they all made her who she is today.
No matter where life leads her, we can always rest on knowing she'll be singing about it in one way.
April released her first full length studio album in February 2017.
Additional Booking Notes
April comes armed for most gigs with a full PA system, keyboard, microphones, etc.
If staging and lighting items are required, this will be an additional cost as she will have to rent those items if you aren't providing them.

Influences & Inspiration
Being raised around the best singer-songwriters from the 50's-70's April's style stems from the greats. Her voice has glimmers of Joan Baez, Adele, Jewel, Tori Amos, and Amy Lee of Evanescence and at the same time comes from a place that is all her own.
