Apryll Aileen is a Canadian alternative pop-rock singer-songwriter, musician, multi-instrumentalist — classically trained in piano.
Her sultry vocals, captivating lyrics and alluring stage presence make Apryll a fan favourite at music festivals worldwide. Aileen transcends genres, creating her own undefinable sound with influences coming from pop, rock, blues and jazz. She doesn’t imitate – she creates. A hybrid of two polarities, she blends melodic songwriting and raspy vocal tones from modern artists such as Ellie Goulding and Halsey but performs with intensity, dynamic range and vocal gravel that Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin would be proud of.
She does it all from behind a piano but sometimes you may see her bring out a guitar, a synth or maybe even a keytar, if the mood strikes.
I actually met Apryll Aileen at a music conference in East Canada called Music New Brunswick. I caught her performance. It was sweet, engaging and her energy is uplifting and she has a dynamic stage presence and irresistible charm.
