April K Music
Singer songwriter from Raleigh NC

Join April K on her ‘second chance at music’ journey!

Hello and thank you for visiting my website! My name is April Koontz, and I’m thrilled to have you join me on my ‘second chance at music journey.’ More than anything else - I hope my quest to catch my dream inspires you to catch yours! Please don’t wait for a moment of family tragedy, like I did, to serve as the shock to wake up your spirit… do it now!

Step 1 of my journey was to launch my Kickstarter campaign to help fund my first solo album and career as a professional songwriter. I launched the campaign on my 50th birthday and was completely blown away that it was 100% funded in 3 days.

Even though the campaign has ended, you can watch my launch video below to better understand how my younger brother’s sudden death reawakened my passion for songwriting and propelled my decision to quit my day job to pursue my dream.

Step 2 of my journey is to complete and release my first album on August 14th, 2017 for the Kickstarter contributors (for everyone else, the album will launch in the fall), and continue writing songs for a 2nd album that I look to release in late 2018.
