April Fish takes many forms but at its core is composer/pianist/vocalist Katie Morton. The other constant is John Costa, who played Warr Guitar for many years before switching to Double Bass after a hand operation meant he could no longer play the guitar.
April Fish formed when Katie saw John busking and left a note in his case. A few months later they opened for Amanda Palmer. April Fish have toured NZ, Australia, the US, and London, with performances ranging from Katie solo to a 12 piece choir.
They will soon be releasing their second album which, like their debut, comprises dark and challenging songs featuring piano, bass, and as many layers of vocals as Katie can get away with.
