April Martell

April Martell

April Martell is a singer/songwriter who originally hails from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, living in Antigonish County since 2007. She has been writing songs since 2018, with a style that is often mellow and easy-listening. Her inspiration often comes not from her own experiences, but simply from the music; she writes the stories that come to her as she composes the melodies.

Despite only discovering her passion for songwriting later in life, April has written over 200 songs to completion. She first began sharing covers for the first time in 2017, having never shared her love of music with anyone. She now shares her original songs for her growing followers on social media and plays live gigs, hoping to one day write for other artists. She has completed an album of originals in 2022, available on all streaming platforms. April and her musician Liam Brophy will be taking the stage at the Jubilee to perform her first outdoor festival, sharing songs from her first album as well as songs she is hoping to record for a forthcoming acoustic album.
