June April

BIOGRAPHY
Songtress Extraordinaire!! June April is a gracious performer, with an intense, fun-loving stage presence that electrifies her audiences. "June April's (voice) is sheerly beautiful; she has a wonderful freedom of voice and style." - Neil Novelli, The Post Standard
Harlem, USA native JuneApril is the latest emerging star in a long line of legendary diva vocalists which includes Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Gladys Knight, to name but a distinguished few. Along with her contemporaries, Erykah Badu, Lauren Hill, and Jill Scott, JuneApril seeks to bring the deep jazz soulful song styling that we grew to expect in the 1970's back to the fore of popular soul and R&B. Combining her awe inspiring vocal range and depth of expression with thoughtful, poignant and sometimes message oriented songwriting, JuneApril is on a mission to revitalize the soul art form.
Beginning as a young child singing hymns in church, JuneApril began honing her tremendous vocal chops as a teenager in talent shows and contests in and around New York City. While still in her teens, she even performed at the infamous Apollo Theater's Amateur Night. While growing up she sought to emulate many of the influential vocalists of the day, including Evelyn "Champagne" King, Phyllis Hyman and Anita Baker. However, while her musical soul reached out for the deeply moving, almost religious offerings of Patti Labelle, Stevie Wonder, and Donny Hathaway, her prodigious talent was leading her in other directions. After completing high school, June was accepted into Syracuse University's Classical Voice Program and began studying Opera. Two years into her studies, June began to feel somewhat disillusioned. "I felt I was moving too far from my musical roots," she has said. JuneApril then returned to New York City and began a relentless pursuit of a career as a jazz vocalist. Her hard work was rewarded when legendary R&B diva Natalie Cole presented her with an opportunity to sing with her as a background vocalist. As JuneApril's reputation grew, she went on to share the stage as a background vocalist with her childhood idol, Patti Labelle. In addition, she has worked and/or studied with many of the luminaries from the jazz era including: Lionel Hampton, Barry Harris, Ron Carter, Kenny Washington, Stefon Harris, and Vanessa Rubin. She has international acclaim and has headlined in London, Amsterdam, Paris, the Middle East, just to name a few. She has honed her songwriting and performance skills as a headliner at such New York City hotspots as: the Bitter End, Shyne, S.O.B.'s the Cotton Club, CBGB's, Birdland, The Village Gate, Two Steps Down, Jimmy's Uptown, and many others.

Her song "Longing" offers a mellow introspective feeling, it offers a mood that will capture the listener to focus and be present. With the "summer time barbecue" feel of JuneApril's soon to be classic, "Afro Love" June feels she's tapped into a part of herself that almost any individual can see in themselves as well. "We all want to feel what "Afro Love" is about," she intimates, "to feel that warm, safe and protected feeling a person gets when they're in the right relationship. And being able to let go of your own inhibitions in order to be able to receive that love. I think everyone can relate to that hope, no matter what their color." With the help of producers teddycrockett., JuneApril is crafting the timeless soul sound of her dreams. "This music is what I was born to do!" She repeats this line over and over to herself and to anyone within earshot in the studio where she's meticulously laying tightly wound vocal layers to a new track entitled, "Confusion". However, anyone blessed to hear JuneApril's music doesn't need her to explain this to them: JuneApril is a star and she was made to sing.
