April 14 features Nori (Austin, Texas), an eclectic modern jazz band featuring Akina Adderley on vocals, Erik Telford on trumpet, Nick Litterski on keys, Aaron Allen on upright bass, and Andy Beaudoin on drums. Enriching an aesthetic deeply rooted in American jazz and folk music, the ensemble playfully weaves together a myriad of global influences giving rise to a seamless synthesis of sound. These musical explorations expertly balance the narrative of the song with wide-open improvisations, echoing the transcendent tones of Nina Simone, Bill Frisell, John Coltrane, and Joni Mitchell.

Led by Hollywood born, Hill Country raised, Noelle Goforth, the quartet delights listeners with smooth vocals, warm tones, and charming vintage vibes. Goforth combines the songs and stylings of soothing Julie London, vivacious Ella Fitzgerald, alluring Peggy Lee, and passionate Billie Holiday, transporting audiences to an unforgettable bygone era.
