A collection of songs about a precarious situation.

Secrets. Love. Lies. Lust.  Mistakes. Hope. Passion. Growth. Put these themes in your proverbial pot along with a generous amount of sultry & smooth vocals, nuanced instrumental performances, and a touch of wordsmithing ands serve it all over hip-hop influenced drumming, thick bass, active keys, and jazzy chord progressions, and you'll have April B. & The Cool's debut EP, The Sidechick Chronicles: Thanks A Lot, Mr. Scott.

April B. & The Cool Asheville, North Carolina

Our sound draws from jazz, r&B, and all the sub-genres of soul music. Whatever we choose to play, we'll do it justice.

Our sound is soulful. It is marked by April and TJ's vocal harmonization. We get funky and we get loud. You will, without a doubt, hear our influences in our playing. The chord progressions in our original music are jazzy. We set out to keep you listening while you dance.

Track Name: If It Were You
I'm moving on, I'm leaving you behind me
I know it may a little hard to take
but I'm not sorry- won't take the blame for your sake
so when you see me again, walk on by
we don't need to be friends
walk on by

now you say you're packing up, moving on
thought I had you wrapped, I guess I was wrong
you were right beside me when she hit my phone
now I can't leave her but the love is gone
hold up- i need a lifeline
'cause my sidepiece took my peace of mind
and now my main chick wants an explanation
for the nights I told her, "I didn't have time"
navigating through the land mines
telling me I need to make a decision
can't have my cake and lick the bowl too
but it's poetry when you roll through
and now, you're telling me that I should walk on by
we can't even be friends?
I should just walk on by?

It's not me, it's you
and here, I thought I knew you
why do you do what you do?
it's not cool, i'm not here for it
so mad i feel for it
walk on by
I know it's gonna hurt
I know you'll have some words to say
don't come to me to wipe your tears away
just walk on by
we don't need to be friends
walk on by
