The Pritchard Park Songwriter Series brings local live music to the park each Thursday, 5-7 pm, from June 7th through August 9th. Join us for intimate performances spanning various genres and musical styles.
This week’s artist: April B.
Originally from Greenville, SC, April B. and The Cool formed in 2015, eventually making their way to Asheville where they have contributed their soulful concoction of jazz, hip-hop and R&B to the local scene. Frontwoman and multi-instrumentalist April Bennet sees herself as a writer, composing thought-stirring lyrics followed by smooth harmonies and jazzy instrumentals that April says draws from all sub-genres of soul music.
“Secrets. Love. Lies. Lust. Mistakes. Hope. Passion. Growth. Put these themes in your proverbial pot along with a generous amount of sultry & smooth vocals, nuanced instrumental performances, and a touch of wordsmithing ands serve it all over hip-hop influenced drumming, thick bass, active keys, and jazzy chord progressions, and you’ll have April B. & The Cool’s debut EP, The Sidechick Chronicles: Thanks A Lot, Mr. Scott.”
