About Lauren April

UK country/pop singer-songwriter with a large selection of covers from all genres and original material where required. Cater for any event.
Guitarist
Nottingham
Public liability insurance of £2 million

I am a singer/songwriter based in the Nottingham area. I sing a large collection of covers and original songs, (many of which can be requested before the day of the performance). I will happily travel and perform to the highest standard solo or with a full band. No gig is too big or small, and I am very flexible and adaptable to different situations. After the release of my first 4 track EP 'This is my Life' in 2014, I began getting spins from local radio stations such as BBC Introducing and community stations whilst gigging around the UK. In 2016 'Picture on the Wall' was released as a stand alone single and received a very positive response from Radio stations around the UK, including: Mark Forrest's BBC Radio show and many country stations including UK country radio and Chris Country Radio. I released my new self titled EP in July 2018. It made its debut in the UK top 20 iTunes Country Music Charts and peaked at number 13. Feel free to contact me with any enquiries, I will do what I can to make your event whether big or small, a very positive, memorable experience!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Unfortunately this isn't something I provide

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 30 minutes before the performance time for solo sets and 60 minutes for band sets.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

My set lists are crafted around what works best to ensure guests have an amazing time. I have a large list of songs to choose from, depending on the length of the sets you book. I'm happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event. If you have one or two song suggestions in advance, I can certainly cater for this.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I bring my own instrument to play acoustically and a full PA system. All I require is access to power. If power is not available, I also have a portable PA system.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list and there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I are happy to do this for you with enough notice.

From customers:

Chloe P

I booked Lauren for a festival theme hen party and she was amazing. Communication before the event was great, she managed to learn a couple new songs of the brides favourites too! She arrived on time looking fabulous, and really started the hen party on a high. Atmosphere was brilliant, so glad she played, her voice and vibe was on point. Thanks again 💛 (10 / 10)

Bradley H, 1 year ago

Lauren turned up on time she was upbeat & positive. Her voice is absolutely fantastic, she sung a variety of songs plus a couple of her own. We would definitely recommend Lauren for any kind of celebration. She made our special night that bit more special. Thanks Lauren. (10 / 10)
