April Anne is originally from Boston, ma but  has called Arizona home since 1990.  After her parents divorced  during that year she found herself in a very hot state with no friends.  She found a friend in music and poetry.  From this she was able to spread her wings and become the woman she is today.  

Music has always been  her lifeblood and at times would drive her parents crazy, for she would never stop singing, she was a living radio.

In 1991  in addition to writing poetry and singing she picked up the violin.  coming from  a musically gifted father, she found that playing music came naturally to her.  She ended up playing this beautiful instrument for 14 years, in addition to 2 years of viola and 1 year on Cello.  But from her many years of playing she injured herself and ended up developing tendonitis in her left elbow and right shoulder.  This all came to the surface during her first year in college, as a  vocal major, when she was finally learning the piano, she had to drop out after  one semester and not play any instruments for 6 months.

Once she  was healed she began to teach herself piano.  She'd always wanted to learn it and instantly fell in love.  But it didn't always come easy to her.  The concept of singing while playing proved to be a tad tricky at times, but with anything that is challenging to her, she practiced until she persevered.

April has been writing music and poetry since she could put a pen to paper.  Her lyrics always come from a place that she knows, her life.  She has lived major ups and downs and all are reflected in her music. when she is in love she writes songs that could melt any man's heart, but when she's been hurt she writes lyrics that touch many deeply.  She admits she has made many mistakes, but if given the opportunity wouldn't change a thing from her past, for they all made her who she is today.  

"piano strings" is a great example of this.  A song about a horrible relationship, April jokes, "well at least i got a good song out of the whole thing".  She is shocked at how this song has really taken off.  With it's provocative lyrics and energetic piano she leaves nothing out.  It's all right there for us all.

No matter where life leads her, we can always rest on knowing she'll be singing about it in one way. 

when asked, what if you never get your heart broken again, she replies with, "no worries there, i have enough ammo to last a lifetime!"

April is currently hard at work on her album and singing at local venues and open mics whenever she can.  

Stay tuned, for this is just the beginning!

I am currently working on my first full length studio album.  this album has been in the works for years so I am very excited to finish it!  I am hoping to have it done by may, but I am not sure if that's possible yet.  it will contain an array of songs written from 3 years ago to even as recent as last month.  I write from real experience and from my a deep place inside.  this album is very close and personal to me.  it's literally my life in song form, the good the bad, and the in-between.
Finished tracks so far are: Piano Strings, Phoenix, Perfect As Me, and Winding Road, you can find these on my soundcloud page:
Here is the official video for Phoenix:

New hit song by Tha Sire "The Lights" has been flowing through social media and gaining more and more fans by the hour. Take a listen for you will understand why Tha Sire is getting so popular. This is what L had to say." With eyes on the prize, Tha SIRE has proudly watched Tha E souljahs rise. The ground floor group and label has come up and now proudly lifts the veil to his upcoming new projects. This will be his first since his debut album, Tha ARRIVAL Built from the bottom up, the record label established by Ernie Jimenez is a fitting example of what hard work and an a visionary dream can create. A bootstrap operation built by the son of Mexican immigrants, Tha E is too independent, positive, hard-core so-it-yourself hip-hop and rap what Jimenez AKA Tha SIRE is to a new movement that seeks to bridge communities while providing alternative role models for young people caught up in the endless cycle of gang violence and racial animosity." "I grew up in East LA and the Inland Empire," says Jimenez, songwriter, producer and emerging record label mogul. "In the end, my parents moved me to Arizona because they wanted more for me and my siblings, something better for me." Jimenez, who performs as Tha SIRE as a way to express only the most dignified and truly noble aspects of fatherhood, is convinced that our young people need role models who are honorable and just and believe in the sanctity of life. Coming of age on the streets of East LA and the back alleys of San Bernardino, Jimenez was no stranger to gang life and admits that the lure of the streets was strong. As a rebellious adolescent, he knew jail from the inside as a result of his affiliations. He was, however, savvy enough to take heed when concerned educators found their way into the halls to offer knowledge and advice. "Even if I was acting like I was hard and didn't care, I listened," says Jimenez. Meanwhile on the home front, his parents were busy trying to cope with a son who appeared to be on the wrong track and head straight for the end of a dead end street. With a fresh start in the desert, Jimenez managed to beat the odds, finish high and earn a degree. And most importantly, after getting his paper straight and his life on track, he launched himself as an artist with a clear conscience and a vision and a mission to build an empire. Influenced by the oldies as wells as the early hip-hop styles of Easy E, N.W.A., LL Cool J, and Run DMC, Jimenez often found himself among, break dance crews while watching members of his family practice beat boxing. "I always loved music. My dad always loved music, nothing professional, but he would pull out the guitar, and play while me and my brother watched" Jimenez says, explaining where it all began and riffing on his need to create a legacy of hip-hop based on truth instead of the usual bling-bling bluster. "I don't say I have a Cadillac Escalade just to rhyme. I tell the truth about what I know and at the same time, I want it relate to everybody, no matter what city they live in, whether it's a love song or a song about the streets," he adds, defining himself as a realist, a characteristic uncommon in the industry. "Every city has the same concrete, the same asphalt." With 18 songs collected on his first major release, Tha Arrival, Tha SIRE solidifies his emergence as a father of a new dynasty. Among the stand-out tracks are the true life tales embodied in: "ThugRollin," "Gave My Life Away," "Where we're From," "Soldier oftha Street," "Life and Death," "Why Every time,""Street lessons and "It just goes on." Executive produced by ThaSIRE, Tha ARRIVAL features vocal stylings by Kokane, Kurupt, KMG (Above the Law) and Goldie Loc and is available in stores now. The debut will now be followed this fall by new releases from the growing roster of artists signed to Tha E. First to come out will be the ENOUGH SAID mixtape by Tha SIRE followed by his second album Tha OCCUPATION. Dates are not yet set but Tha SIRE is currently in the studio working hard on his new projects. "No cuss words" says Jimenez as he describes and sums up his new music. "I'm excited" is also what he replies when speaking of the song he will be releasing as his return "THEY SAY I SAY" . "The song and video will speak for itself".
