Like many people April Reign has used music to enhance her life and those around her. She was born in Victoria to a musical family and grew up on the two coasts of Canada. April spent time as a child on the East Coast and absorbed the musical nature of the Maritimes. Encouraged by her grandfather, who helped found The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts in Summerside on Prince Edward Island, April continued to grow as a performer when she returned to the West Coast and started singing all different genres of music. While living in Victoria April was part of many different acts and even won an award at the Vancouver Island Music Awards for best live act with The Turnpike Bandits. April has also opened shows for some great North American talents including Tom Cochrane, Colin James, Johnny Reid, George Canyon, Little Big Town, Toby Keith, and Dierks Bentley just to name a few. Since moving to the lower mainland from Victoria April started expanding her activities significantly. Her current projects include Derek Pitts and the Bullets providing backup vocals and harmonies and they just finished recording their first album, she also occasionally performs with The Rollin' Trainwreck and recorded on their album, and April Reign's personal project is everything from a duo to a full band and includes originals and covers across all genres.
April has a bunch of musical accomplishment under her belt (the one with the country size buckle). She was a Top 10 finisher at the Red Robinson’s BC Talent Search, sang at the Halifax Beatles Festival on two separate occasions, performed at the Calgary Stampede three times including the Coca Cola Stage this past summer, won Best Live Act at the Vancouver Island Music Awards in 2011 and was a judge the following year, and was a finalist in Victoria Idol contest for seven years.
April has also sung national anthems for multiple sports teams and events since 2004 including the BC Lions. Besides the Canadian and American anthems and she had to learn the Mexican anthem for the Victoria Seals and the Russian anthem for a WHL vs. Russia game.
April has a busy 2018 ahead of her with the recent release of the Derek Pitts and the Bullets debut album and she will be heading into studio to start recording her original music.
April is a consummate singer/artist and by all definitions a true performer. After collaborating with new musicians and getting more comfortable in her new surroundings April has started to produce some great original songs. As it says on her Love Notes website she is truly a ‘singer for all occasions.’
