Ottawa singer-songwriter April Rick, began playing piano at the age of four and believes the piano is the sexiest of instruments, a perfect blend of class and passion. After receiving classical training through Royal Conservatory of Music, she began writing instrumental piano tunes in her spare time.
With a melody line often stuck in her head, April decided to start putting lyrics to her songs after meeting long time musical idol Tori Amos in 2007. Drawing on influences like Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, Coldplay, and Lady Gaga, April has slowly developed her own alternative pop style with songs about love, hope and life's many ups and downs.
April is proud to be a part of Ottawa's vibrant and ever growing arts scene. Pre-COVID you could see her performing around town at various open mics, including a spotlight performance at Live on Elgin. Stay tuned for online live performances and be sure to follow her on social media!
April’s debut single will be released in January 2021 with more releases to follow in the new year.
