Artist Interview: April Smith and The Great Picture Show
When I was first given the latest release from April Smith and The Great Picture show, it was like the skies opened up and light shown down directly on my face. I felt a warmth the likes of which I hadn’t felt in quite some time. Of course the light was merely hypothetical and the warmth was from the space heater I was sitting too close to, but I still think it was a sign. FreshScouts got a chance to catch up with this sexy, sultry artist from Toms River, New Jersey and honestly, we were completely blown away by the show.
She has a certain stage presence that makes you immediate think of some of the great performers of the 20′s and 30′s, and you realize very quickly that this little package packs a very large punch. She had my attention the entire show and left me wanting more. I guarantee we’ll be at the next show in Chicago and you would be cheating yourself if you weren’t there too.
Luckily, we were able to catch up with her after the show to talk about her upcoming plans for 2011 and find out just exactly how she got started in the music industry. Check out our exclusive interview with April Smith:
