Maybe April Embark on East Coast Tour Following YOU WERE MY YOUNG Music Video Release
Nashville-based indie country/Americana trio Maybe April (Alaina Stacey, Katy DuBois, Kristen Castro) have embarked on an East Coast fall tour, which includes an appearance at Audiotree Music Fest this Saturday as well as a set at North Carolina's LEAF Festival next month. Please see below for full tour details, with shows in Memphis, Little Rock, Nashville, and Washington D.C, among others.
A dynamic trio of songwriters, vocalists, and multi-instrumentalists who share roles as frontwomen, Maybe April was named one of CMT's 2018 "Rising Acts" for their "soul-stirring three-part harmonies" that are "as alluring as their lyrics." Ahead of the upcoming shows, they recently released a music video for their new track, "You Were My Young," which is the first single from their forthcoming debut album. Wide Open Country premiered the Colling Films-directed video, stating, "Built on the trio's folk instrumentation and airy vocals, 'You Were My Young' is a nostalgic look at the highs and lows of your first real love." Filmed partly on a high school auditorium stage and with lead actors who are both actual high school students, the video chronicles the innocent bliss of being 17 and in love, the seemingly tragic end of your last teenage summer together, and the feeling years later when you reminisce about the relationship that prepared your heart for the romances of your 20s. Paste Magazine also featured the "reflective" video, adding, "The song is warm with familiarity and Stacey's lead vocals wind through smoothly, even as the couple in the video drifts apart...The balmy three-part harmonies give the vocals depth while creating a feeling of solidarity in the song's lyrical journey." Additionally, The Boot included "You Were My Young" in their weekly roundup of favorite country music videos. The track is available digitally everywhere now and the video can be viewed/shared now HERE.
Maybe April first met at a GRAMMY Foundation camp in Nashville in 2012, where they penned a song together that would take them to Los Angeles for a special performance during GRAMMY week, along with Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, Allen Shamblin, J.D. Souther, and Joy Williams (of the Civil Wars). They have since opened for Brandy Clark and Sarah Jarosz, as well as performed at Pilgrimage Music Festival and IBMA's Wide Open Bluegrass Festival. Just a couple of years after forming, the trio filmed an Audiotree session, which was posted in December of 2016 and has now reached nearly 1.2 million views. Watch it HERE.
