April, aka April Lawlor, is currently one of Ireland’s new musical discoveries. After touring Europe with Alec Benjamin last year and experiencing the feeling of being on the big stage, the Irish newcomer is now coming to Berlin’s Privatclub on May 11, 2021 for an exclusive concert.

The Dublin-born musician has been making music since she was a child. It was her father who introduced her to playing the piano and the guitar. Later the first songwriting attempts were made. April’s lyrics have always contained strong messages, primarily related to topics such as violence prevention and charity.
On her first EP “New Conditions”, which the musician released in May, April primarily processed her personal feelings and experiences with love.
“Most of the time I write my texts based on my own experiences. But I am also often inspired by the relationships in my circle of friends, ”she says. April combines sophisticated lyrics with her signature soft voice, creating melancholic pop songs reminiscent of that of her role model Lana Del Rey.
Due to the lockdown and the associated isolation before the release of her debut “New Conditions”, April took to her own initiative (and DIY tricks) to shoot a music video for the song of the same name together with her sister.
