Usually when I write songs, I write with the intention for my songs to be stripped down to simple instruments, to translate no matter what--whether full production or acoustic. But when I co-wrote "Turn It Up", I was given an already fully produced track. So my guitarist friend, Seth, and I were intrigued to rearrange this song, formerly upbeat and dance-tastic, into a more "turned down" mix. Creating this slowed down version of "Turn It Up" allows me to sit in the pocket and ruminate in the dark, smoky corners of the lyrics. That's what reinvention is all about.
Soul-stirring singer-songwriter and recording artist April Peters has a driving passion to help women and children find freedom and discover their value in God. April became aware of the emotional scars and wounds of domestic violence on her own family and released her debut EP, Early Bloomer, in 2010 to tell her story in song of love, loss and the power of forgiveness while raising awareness around issues of domestic violence and abuse. April traveled to West Africa, where she performed and made radio appearances, encouraging Liberia's people and children scarred after civil war. April has been featured on FOX's Good Day Philadelphia and Monarch Magazine hailed April for being an “exceptional [person] empowering others to become exceptional” and "artist who uses her past experiences, talent and passion for change – to create a new voice in adult contemporary music.” April's recently released single “Turn It Up” and her EP Fly carry the message of hope, truth, love and renewal that she so passionately conveys to audiences worldwide.
