If anyone has there finger on the pulse of the action in Uptown Saint John it's the multi-talented Apryll Aileen. From music to marketing, Apryll is connected to countless uptown events in so many different ways. A sales & marketing professional by day, Apryll shows her artistic side in the evenings and can often be spotted playing piano & singing at any of the numerous live music venues in the Uptown core. Truly amazing!?
Let's learn more about Apryll!?
Where were you born?
I came into this world on August 9th, shortly after midnight during a huge storm which resulted in a power outage at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Thankfully there are backup generators. 🙂
How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?
I moved back to this City about 3 years ago – that's when I truly became integrated into the Uptown scene.
I have an incredible dog Jasper – he is my family dog. Dogs have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Since moving back to Saint John, I've been able to really dive into pursuing my passion (which is writing music and singing). Ironically enough, it also seems to be his. Whenever I do my vocal warm ups, he joins in – I'll have to record a video sometime!
Most guilty pleasure?
Quantum physics. It may surprise you, but I have a science degree. During my final semester at Mount Allison University, I enrolled in a few physics courses. I wish I would have had time to dive more into quantum physics, which I believe can explain many of the mysteries of the world around us.
What is your Uptown Insider Tip?
It is so hard to pick just one because there are so many people, stores and atmospheres that make me smile every day. The Saint John Ale House has always felt like home to me but I also have to say, since I started playing music on Monday evenings at The York Bistro (Hilton), I've come to love their heated patio which features a stellar view of the harbour and one of the city's most famous bartenders 😉
