The two friendliest Canadians ever, Jaime April and Jason Moon, met working as actors and shared a love for life, music and adventure. Two bands, 3 albums and several Canadian and UK tours later, APRIL MOON emerged. The pair decided to head to a corner of the world they had fallen in love with on previous visits- the Northwest of England.
Upon moving to Southport, they enlisted bass player Martin “Tino” Keith and Sheffield native Sheena Savage as drummer to join them onstage. They currently support themselves by playing as a classic rock covers band or as a duo around the vibrant pub scene three or four times a week.
APRIL MOON recorded a six song EP entitled “The Sun” in May 2013 and are currently wrapping up the recording of it’s follow-up EP, “The Moon”.
The sound of the group has been described as “Grateful Dead meets Fleetwood Mac”, which probably fits given the folk-rock nature of many of the songs combined with the pop sensibility, tight harmonies, and blues undertones. Covers include songs from David Bowie, the Police, the Who, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac and Queen.
