April N. Smith’s stunning voice along with a new look and modern, yet classic, sound has earned her a who’s who in Texas music. A native of North East Texas, singing at local gatherings and churches during her teenage years came naturally to April, allowing her to sharpen her Patsy Cline-inspired vocal abilities while gaining her a dedicated fan base.
In 2007, a family attorney scheduled a meeting with a music professional, and the dream for Where I Am was born. To April’s surprise, her father financed the gospel album that showcased her love for gospel and country music. The album included bluegrass style remixes of familiar gospel songs and featured two originals. Recorded at IBC Studios in Dallas, the Jeff Taylor-produced recording was very well received and exposed her to the industry. April was soon performing at special events and churches throughout North Texas. By 2009, she was leading a cast of performers at a popular Galveston resort’s nightly Christmas musical.
After an important pause in her blossoming musical career to raise her three daughters, in 2018, April joined a local band singing backup and guest vocals on the local music circuit. Her love of the stage was instantly rekindled and she now performs solo acoustic sets as well as full band shows. When she isn’t performing or teaching her third grade elementary class, April has been pouring her efforts into a new album, Enough. The brand new 13-song, facts of life epic is set for early 2021 release.
