April George (singer, songwriter, pianist, violinist) and mattVISTA (producer, composer bassist) make up the genre-bending duo April + VISTA. Hailing from the DMV (DC, Maryland, VA) they pull from an eclectic range of influences–fusing traditional elements with futuristic soundscapes, quirky beats, and immersive storytelling.
Their music has been featured on notable outlets including KCRW, KEXP, BBC 1Xtra with Jamz Supernova, Beats1 with Julie Adenuga, and Beats1 with Ebro. They’ve also garnered nods from a wide range of collectives and publications including The Fader, DJ Booth, Soulection, Saint Heron, and Majestic Casual.
The band has taken their dynamic live act to a wide range of venues around the country; they’ve opened for notable acts like Khalid, Kllo, and Mura Masa. In 2017, they joined fellow DMV artist GoldLink on his North American At What Cost tour, alongside Masego. This fall, A+V will be joining Little Dragon for 5 dates in NYC, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.
Their third EP, You Are Here was released to critical acclaim on August 24, 2018 via Otherfeels Records.
