April Cushman’s new release may be called “Smoke,” but it’s fire. And April’s burning passion for her art has ignited a continuously growing fan base to discover and consume her music. She works hard for the music, and it shows with each new song. But make no mistake, she’s in it for the fun, and likely the creative release she experiences.
This Swanzey, New Hampshire native is a full time original artist. That is not an easy task, especially on the local level. You have to be your own manager, public relations agent and roadie, in addition to being the talent. April handles all that, and a full family life. She and her husband and daughter all live on their family farm (also a full time job).
It’s the hard work and sheer love of her craft that’s made April who she is, and who she represents in her music. The 2022 New England Music Awards Country Act of the Year is a thoughtful songwriter, passionate and bold vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and a badass boss lady. With all that going on, she can’t help but bring the sass factor to her music. More and more people are taking notice of April Cushman. She is an in-demand live performer (supporting the group Lonestar next week), and currently working with some noted songwriters.
