April Meservy

April MeservyApril Meservy is an indie singer/songwriter who has been featured on over 100 albums and compilations released all over the world, in addition to film and commercial spots. After releasing her first album in 2010, “Somewhere Between Sunsets,” Meservy toured nearly 50 cities throughout the Western and the Midwestern United States, performing with her Russian MTV­Duet Winner, Nikki Forova.

April was born in Reno, Nevada, but her music career has given her opportunities to perform as far as China for global audiences. She was invited to sing in Salt Lake City’s Olympic Square for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Sharing the stage with artists like Matt Nathanson, David Archuleta, and CAKE, April uses her indie voice and style to uplift and inspire.

“Music has a much more powerful influence to heal and reach people’s hearts than I think we sometimes give it credit for,” April said. “It is my hope that the music I write will encourage an environment for people to feel, to think or just to smile.”

Her award­winning EFY song “The Light” (also known as “Shine the Light”) received Pearl awards in the categories “Devotional Recorded Song” and “Contemporary Recording of the Year.” More recently, April was a Posi Award Finalist for the “Social Action and Justice” category for the February 2016 Posi Awards in Tampa, Florida. She was also a finalist for her recent music video “Truth Speak” in the “Music Video” category. Her debut album, Somewhere Between Sunsets, which features 12 original songs, received an award from the Interfaith Power and Light Earth Song Competition for her original song “Marks of My Path (Mountain).”

In July 2007, she created her own independent label, Forêt d’Musique, (Jèrriais: “Forest of Music”) to release Somewhere Between Sunsets. She continues to work on new recordings, projects, and music videos through her independent label. However, for April, finding success as an artist is about more than the music. “[Success is] a three­minute conversation after a show with a stranger who lets me know that one of my songs was exactly what she needed right then. Getting an email from a friend in Russia who says my music made him laugh, reminisce, think and unwind,” April continued. “Most importantly, however, it’s knowing that I am trying to listen to what my heart, God, and life are trying to teach me. To be where it is I’m needed and doing what it is I’m here to do—that applies on a musical level and in everything else.”

April’s music is available on Spotify and YouTube.
