Manhattan based singer/songwriter Aprilann’s latest release is “Crown and the Girls.” It’s striking how well-produced it is (credit Artie Skye of Skyelabs in NY.) The chorus is catchy and repetitive in that “department store pop music” kind of way that gets the song stuck in your head for days. I could easily see this becoming a hit pop song. Aprilann is a terrific young singer and has more genuine vocal talent than many pop stars (who are often hired merely for looks and dancing ability.) She will have a good future in this genre if she continues to surround herself with the right people in a competitive field.
