Dr Lockhart wants only one thing - to make you feel great, so what are you waiting for? Come and take a ride on the soul train and see where it takes you..."

“April has an astonishing voice. It is clear and direct. She hits notes dead on and effortlessly glides across octaves. Accompanying herself with only an acoustic guitar seems fitting. It puts the focus on her singular voice, providing just enough of an anchor to get a sense of chord progression beneath the melody.” - SOUNDCLOUD


"April is a story teller. Branching out from the acoustic songwriter mould, April is a contemporary vocalist with a tale to tell. Her songs are a journey with incredible hooks and melodic twists and turns. Bottling this emotion and prose into catchy Nu Folk Hits Hollie is a star in the making." - STEVE CHRISANTHOU


"It's impossible to not enjoy the touches of melodies, guitar licks and misty background noises playing behind the direct singing of April." - EXPLODING HEAD SYNDROME


"A smouldering and climactically sultry embrace for ears and imagination... a delicious evocative caress of drama and emotive seduction which whilst reinforcing the already impressive presence of April, her vocals spellbind ears and thoughts immediately, flirting with the imagination." - RINGMASTER


"I can’t put my finger on it but there is something about her voice which makes you just want to listen, that intangible all music fans understand." - THE MUSICAL OUTCAST
