The passion and love for country music started at just the small age of five, for April. Growing up in church singing with the children's choir, "Key of G", she quickly picked up a sense of music being where her heart felt the most comfortable. Through grade school, April played in concert band and honors jazz band, excelling at flute, alto saxophone and guitar. April continues to excel with any stringed instrument, including mandolin, banjo and even non-stringed, such as piano. Her love for energetic, spirited country music has always been heavily influenced by some of her favorite artists including Brandi Carlisle, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Caitlyn Smith, Liz Longley, and many more.
