Acoustic Asheville: April Bennett

Somewhere on the music landscape between R&B, jazz, hip-hop and soul is where you’ll find April Bennett. She seamlessly blends those genres together and combines them with lyrics that feel poetic.

The front woman of April B. & the Cool, she’s recently transplanted to Asheville and is primarily doing solo gigs while her band still resides in Greenville. You can catch her at One World Brewing Co. on Friday, Aug. 17, at 8 p.m.

Ahead of that show, she gave an exclusive performance at The Grey Eagle for Xpress and Acoustic Asheville.

“Glass Ceilings”

“Walk On By”

“Revolution’s Coming”
