Some people seem destined to create art and use their talent to improve the world, others simply
fall into it. For Millie Turner, the reality is somewhere between. Having been born into a
family of artists, the cosmic wheels had been set in motion from the very beginning. A painting
father, an art school teacher as a mother – all roads seemed to lead toward working in something
creative. As to ending up as a musician though? That all seemed to happen by chance. Call it chance,
call it destiny – Millie Turner is piecing together a colourful world one song at a time.
A self-proclaimed, out-and-proud “indie f*ck” with the voice of a bruised, toughened angel. A
chipped-nail-varnish kinda girl, and “quite a boyish girl. You’ll never catch me in a skirt.” A 19-year-
old singer-songwriter who began her first writing and recording sessions barely a year ago, in the
Easter holidays when she should have been revising for her A-levels.
A woman with ambition: “I want to be heard by as many people as possible, because I want to go
global, because I want to speak to as many girls as possible – and boys. They need to hear this too!
Let’s all be empowered by a sad song and connect with it. I want to spark real, human emotion.
Everyone is connected through music, right? Or, they should be.”
April is a 20-year-old Irish singer-songwriter, her music takes inspiration from the new generation of
self-producing artist such as Gus Dapperton, Kojaque and Clairo, as well a drawing from classic jazz
and 90's hip hop influences in her own self-produced tracks. 2020 will see her release her debut EP
and play festivals throughout Ireland and the UK.
