An award-winning artist, garnering accolades in both singer and songwriter categories in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition (ISC) among others, April’s talents have been recognized by industry luminaries such as Peter Gabriel, Tom Waits, Adele, Robert Smith, and Epic Records president Amanda Ghost.

Chatting with Nat - Soul and Rock Singer Songwriter Juliet Hawkins
A modern troubadour with footprints in both the soul and rock worlds, singer/songwriter Juliet Hawkins brings her message of hope and self-acceptance in her new EP Lead with Love. From the start of her musical journey in Rockport, Mass., on a path that led to working at an orphanage in Peru, stints in Wyoming and California, and finding her true voice in Nashville, Tenn., Hawkins’ commanding vocals evoke a place of self-healing. The fusion of her fiery personality and artistry stirs and inspires the listener. From her rendition of Cage The Elephant’s “Trouble” to the smoky, bedroom pop track “Let You Leave”, Hawkins’ compass points home “I chose the Cage the Elephant cover because besides being a personal fan of the Nashville band, the message felt relevant given ‘the times’,” Hawkins, who first released the single on July 3, said. “It was the first to be released as well to set a personal and global storyline. The solution to the trouble is love.” Her recovery after the devastation of a drug addiction doesn’t define Hawkins. Her energy now focuses into music, she’s into plant-based medicinals, and her independent soul has taken her to places near, far and off the beaten path. She’s enlightened her world with surges of adrenaline and centered meditation. Like the lotus blossom tattooed on her body and ingrained in her art, Hawkins’ trek aims not for perfection but for enlightenment. Lead with Love is released on a full harvest moon day. “I’ve always been influenced by the moon and feel it’s the purest time for setting intentions, manifesting, transcending and rebirth,” Hawkins said.

Chatting with Nat - R&B Artist Stacy Olieux
I am an R&B musician from Toronto, Canada. I've been singing my whole life but only seriously took up music about 6 years ago when my then boyfriend (now husband) bought me my first recording mic. I make music to vibe with fans. A lot of my music touches on mental health, which is something I struggle with, so I hope to reach out to people and make them feel less alone. Even if I could help one or two people, that would make me feel so good. In my spare time when I'm not writing music or studying, I'm listening to music (because it puts me in a mood) or hanging out with my husband and giant dog. Music really is at the core of me though, and I want to share that with the world.
