April Martin – “Heart Break Doesn’t Come”

NYC singer/songwriter April Martin touts powerful and semi-quivering vocals, the type that begs for narrative appeal — and Martin delivers. “Heart Break Doesn’t Come” shows this well in reassuring about potential romantic danger, with the melodic charm emerging around 01:47 during a hook-y bridge that soars. Martin, who has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and runs a successful practice in NYC, released her first album in 2010. Her newest, In the Blink of a Life, continues to explore the human heart — done “with tenderness, humor, and passion, to greater depths of reflection and maturity.”
