April plays bass and writes lyrics and music in rock band Hooded Fang and electronic beats-based duo Phèdre. Her lyrics range from socio-political to fantastical. Her writing and the imagery she instills in her projects reflect her identity as a woman, a Filipinx-Canadian, as well as one who enjoys myth, fantasy and the absurd. Composing with her main collaborator Lee Paradise (Daniel Lee), she experiments with the endless possibilities in the realm of sound.
