April Smith and The Great Picture Show

We get a TON of artist submissions on a daily basis,  and we absolutely love it.  We go through every CD, every song and every press release to find the best stuff out there so we can bring it right to your online doorstep.  But sometimes we get something that jumps out so much that we know you’ll dig it after just one listen to the first song.  April Smith and The Great Picture Show is one of those bands.

Their unique sound is refreshing and up-lifting.  Like using Herbal Essence shampoo or taking your shoes off after work.  It contains all of the correct elements to make it “pop” without following a formula, mixing traditional folk with pop, classic rock, old-timey piano and horns.  The vocals are also very traditional, but with a very unique twist.  She is young and relevant, but it would be quite easy to picture April Smith as the headlining act at a cabaret in the ’30s.

However, updated lyrics and a signature swoon make this lass a popular choice  for your latest new music selection.  It’s not often you get such a young look and sound out of a band so deeply rooted in traditional musical stylings.  But April Smith and The Great Picture Show pulls it off with flying colors.

Judging by the number of instruments they used on the album, one would have to assume that the live show is nothing less than completely interesting.  Lucky for you, they have been touring heavily across the nation so you can have your very own opportunity to check them out at one of their upcoming shows.  And they’ll even let you stream their entire album for free.  How great is that?
