Artist & Songwriter
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, April Geesbreght (pronounced JEZ-bray) has been writing songs since she could make a joyful noise. Trusting Jesus at a young age, April served in church and on worship teams throughout her youth. April moved to Nashville, TN in 2010 and landed her first publishing deal writing pop + country songs for Sony ATV. The Lord called her back to worship in 2019, moments after her father passed away. April’s journey of anxiety, insecurity, physical pain and grief, is now a story of hope, healing, assurance, freedom, and joy as she testifies to what the Lord has done. Moved to tell others of her journey in Christ, she began writing and recording a worship album that will release in April 2023.
April is a wife, mother to 3 children, worship leader, songwriter and singer who can often be found playing board games, riding bikes with her kids, interior designing and sitting at her piano creating a song of praise.
