 AT LEAST WE ARE NOT LONELY

Our fourth (and hopefully final?) lockdown song about things getting a little raw and real when humans are cooped up too long.

 CALL OF THE WILD

The third lockdown single. All about feeling the need to break a few rules and get out for some fun.

 CHILL

The second lockdown single. Everything you ever wanted to know about fear - but were afraid to ask.

 WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

Our first lockdown single. It's about how sometimes when we're under stress, we take things out on the people nearest to us, when we should instead be holding them closer.

WOODEN ROCKET 
Maybe In The Morning A project we did with Martin "Tino" Keith on bass and Christian Smith on drums. When Christian moved to London we folded the project, but APRIL MOON still features all these tunes in the live show.

The Bus That Takes 
The Sad People Away

Released in October 2016, "The Bus That Takes The Sad People Away" was recorded in the village of Fulwood, in Lancashire. The house we moved into had a garage off to the side that we converted into a studio, complete with beer fridge. We spent two months recording ten tracks for the album. Two tunes - "Smile" and "Take You Down" - were then included from our 2015 sessions in Southport, making a total of twelve new songs.

GUEST ARTISTS
     Martin "Tino" Keith has been APRIL MOON's bass player for live shows since 2013. Naturally he was our first choice to come into the studio when it was time to record "Original Face" - a song we had been playing live already.

     Jack Woods, lead guitarist for the band Karm and one of it's main writers, brought his Les Paul and his array of psychedelic guitar effects into the studio for the recording of "Take You Down" - giving the entire song a dreamy fantasy-like aura that draws the listener in and floats them right along.

The Sun, the Moon, and the Truth

Released in July 2014, our first album contains a variety of song styles - rock, country, folk, funk - and eleven songs written mostly separately but occasionally in collaboration with each other. The tunes are all from our chaotic first year of living and performing in the UK, and many of the lyrics reflect this life-changing experience. "My Lost Year", "Mr. Jones's Children" and of course "Southport" were all written about our adopted city and the people who live there.

GUEST ARTISTS
     The fabulous Adrian Gautrey plays pedal steel on "My Lost Year" and "Love Song". In fact, I wrote "Love Song" the day before the session so that there would be something "countrified" for Adrian to play on. It was only because we nailed the song in two takes that we moved on and added pedal steel to "My Lost Year"
     Thom Farrell is a long time friend of ours and leads Blackpool's Ginger Dog Blues Band, where he plays multiple instruments. He was recruited to play banjo for Jaime's tune, "Jungle Drums".
