Somewhere between Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse and
Florence+TheMachine, April is a recording artist-songwriter-performer, who connects to the audience. Lighthearted and spunky to deep, affectionate extremes, 'epic intimacy' is the core and character of the electro-pop-soul, as it emanates the wild and wise.
April Henry, with a big voice, big heart, and definitely big hair, comes from a family of artists and entertainers. She began singing and entertaining from the ripe old age of two and remembers watching her parents, both Country singer-songwriters, from the wings of the Grand Ole Opry. She was hooked ever since.
Most recently, April won an International Songwriting Competition (ISC) Award for her song "Dangerous,” (recognized by the ISC panel of judges of industry icons and professionals like Peter Gabriel, Tom Waits, Adele, Robert Smith, and Amanda Ghost — president of Epic Records among others). April also received the eWorld Music Award for her song "New Day" (whose panel and producers includes Emmy Award winning John Hamilton and Emmy Award Winning Director of the Golden Globes / Independent Spirit Awards Chris Donovan). In addition, she was given a Collective Works Award from “Song of the Year” which recognizes exceptional songwriting skills across various works.
April is a South Florida native and graduate of New World School of the Arts Conservatory, where she honed her talents and love for the stage. As an actress she has performed all over South Florida and Off Broadway in NYC, as well as in TV, Commercials and Film. April loves bringing theatricality to music and to the stage. When you see her on stage, you don't just get a singer, you get a performance. She has performed to sold out houses all over the world from venues like the Bitter End, Feinsteins at the Loews Regency, the Metropolitan Room, Sunfest (opening for Michelle Branch and Gavin DeGraw) to as far as Bar Queen in Japan.
In addition to music, April has a passion for animals and the
environment as well as Human Rights. She supports the NRDC, Ocean Conservancy, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids and is currently working on a media project for Women's Development. Find out more at www.aprilhenrymusic.com.
