The two friendliest Canadians ever, Jaime April and Jason Moon, met during a dinner theatre production which Jaime directed and Jason had a role in. Quickly becoming friends, they started their music career by playing guitars and singing during the cast parties of shows they acted in. They fell in love with the idea of sharing a connection with people through music and using it as a way to explore everything in life so they and their spouses (who were also musicians) formed the group Magic Trees, recorded an album and toured the Canadian prairies before setting off for the North West of England to record a second one.
It was during that five month visit to the UK and a subsequent one that Jaime and Jason realized that England and especially the North West held a special attraction for them. After the dissolution of Magic Trees and both of their marriages, they decided to return to the area and work under the name APRIL MOON.
Upon moving to Southport (an excellent point for access to both the Liverpool and Manchester music scenes), they enlisted bass player Martin "Tino" Keith and local drummer Danny Lightfoot to join them onstage and currently support themselves by playing as a classic rock covers band or as a duo around the vibrant pub scene three or four times a week.
APRIL MOON released their first, full length album, "The Sun, the Moon and the Truth" in 2014
The sound of the group has been described as "Grateful Dead meets Fleetwood Mac", which probably fits given the folk-rock nature of many of the songs combined with the pop sensibility, tight harmonies, and blues undertones.
