Get on the Boat-- Don't Miss April Smith in NYC
Melodramatic Pop Quiz:
April Smith is:
a.) the unstoppable female artist whose vocal style has been compared to that of Jeff Buckley
b.) fresh out of the studio with producers Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) and Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owen Youngs) where she’s been working on the follow-up to her acclaimed 2006 debut, loveletterbombs
c.) winner of five Asbury Park Music Awards (2005-2007 Top Female Vocalist, 2006 Best Release, 2006 Best Song- “Bright White Jackets”)
d.) a self-proclaimed “girl who goes through life with her skirt tucked into her underwear”
Correct answer: ALL OF THE ABOVE!
Classic retro pop sounds and sing-along love songs have projected April Smith and her band, The Great Picture Show, into the spotlight well beyond their local New Jersey stomping grounds. While her tunes were being featured on MTV shows
(The Hills & Newport Harbor), local radio and personal MySpace pages across all borders, Smith was bringing them to life on stage during a Jeff Buckley tribute show in Chicago and nonstop gigs in between. Praise followed her wherever she went.
Upstage Magazine hails Smith’s voice as one that “made it seem like you lived a lifetime in a 4 ½ minute song.”
Her next stop?
On Thursday, April 10, April Smith and the Great Picture show will be performing a special 18+ show at Sullivan Hall in New York City.
The Aquarian Weekly says “If you haven’t seen this band live, you’re missing the boat kids.”
Don’t miss the boat. You’ll find her simply delicious.
