The April Family - Champagne

The April Family - Champagne
Featuring the soulful twang of the enigmatic Kylie Whitney on lead vocals, the blistering skills of Casey Atkins on lead guitar and backing vocals, and the production and all-rounder abilities of Michael Carpenter on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, The April Family developed a sound that fused Classic Country with the timeless colours of West Coast American Country Rock.

The result was their debut album “What We Know Now”, released in May 2017. Featuring 4 well received singles, the album allowed the band to develop a compelling live show, based around accomplished musicianship, tight 3-part harmonies and the presence of front person Whitney.

The live performing experience has further defined the band’s sound, leading to the writing and recording of their second album, due for release soon. With a focus on a leaner approach, showcasing a more ‘ensemble’ sound, and the writing from Carpenter and Whitney becoming more refined and deliberate, the album promises to show a maturity and intent that will lift the band to the next stage of their journey in the Australian Country Music scene.

About this track...

Champagne is a playfully bitter new single featuring lead vocalist Kylie Whitney soulfully twanging about the relative merits of one of her favourite drinks when compared to her relationship history, lead guitarist Casey Atkins, and Michael Carpenter on banjo, acoustic guitar, drums and upright bass, with 3-part harmonies that have become so fundamental to the evolving sound of the band.
