April is a musician, documentarian and educator whose work revolves around telling stories through her music and sharing other people’s stories through her journalism and art. She often thinks about destroying the status quo and about alternative ways of living and working.


April is the co-creative director, the bassist and the co-lyricist of Hooded Fang, a band known for making propulsive, hypnotic rock music reminiscent of industrialized dissonance. She is also in genre-bending, avant-pop electronic duo Phèdre, where she writes music and lyrics, as well as makes anamorphic collages and directs fantastical music videos.


With both projects having a widespread International audience, she tours knowing she is increasing visibility of Filipinx artists and of women. She plays shows and festivals across North America, Europe and Asia and has played concerts as far as Mexico, Iceland, Russia and The Philippines. Her music is actively licensed in television, film and
commercial advertisements.


April highly values knowledge sharing and creating opportunity in Canada’s cultural and artistic landscape. Her most recent work in this has been through mentoring young women at the Kapisanan Philippine Art Centre, coaching at Girls Rock Camp in Toronto and Dawson City, and teaching a course at Ryerson University about creating inclusive art spaces. April produces documentaries for CBC Arts’ show Exhibitionist where she highlights interesting, status quo breaking creators on the margins of Canadian art and music. She also has a monthly column on CBC Arts’ online portal where she writes about her experiences and perspectives as an artist.
