April Maey is a singer, songwriter and performer who lives in Ghent, Belgium. Her soul is rooted in Alternative Rhythm and Blues music. R&B is a fitting conduit for her to tell authentic stories and express her emotions. April navigates the space of music with a backpack full of melodies, and an expert approach to lyrical storytelling.
“I’m very focused on artistic expression, but my sound ranges from soulful to rhythmic and introspective to expansive in its scope, making it more than lyrical storytelling.”
In March 2020, April launched her first EP entitled ‘Ticket to Anywhere‘. This first set of tunes gave listeners a taste of April Maey by virtue of her range of melodies from razor sharp to smooth and whimsical. The EP successfully captured the sound and style of an eclectic artist who was beginning to pique listeners’ interests as a result of her remarkable vocals and originality.
Following the success of her feel good summer single, “Sweatshirt,” and her latest release, “Far Away” (September 16, 2022) R&B songstress April Maey caps off the year with a 5-track EP that is a kaleidoscope of shifting emotions “Airplane Mode.“
Representing an evolution in the artist’s style and themes, Airplane Mode is an alternative R&B and Hip Hop project that expresses a loss in social connection mixed with the boost you get from a liftoff.
The EP combines smooth beats with soft vocals to create a soundscape that reflects the feeling of being disconnected, but also the excitement of leaving everything behind. Using R&B and Hip-Hop, it expresses a loss in social connection mixed with the boost you get from a fresh start.
“Airplane Mode is a lyrical poem about feeling lost in your own world, and the journey to discovering oneself” – April May
Each track maps out the journey of finding yourself: it’s about feeling lost in your own world and discovering something new. Through moody soundscapes layered with heartfelt swooning vocals and authentic rhymes, Airplane Mode paints a picture of feeling disconnected from the world, yet still striving to build meaningful connections within it.
Airplane Mode EP releases on all DSP’s on Friday, December 9, 2022, with track in focus “Too much.”
