Does your house have a 1940’s or earlier feel inside and out? Are you in the NY/NJ area? We’re looking for a location to shoot the “Terrible Things” music video on 8/14 and 8/15. We’ll probably need 2 full days but possibly less. Here are the areas we need:

Outdoor garden, preferably with shed
Master Bedroom
Kitchen
Living Room
Dining Room

All decor must be 1940’s or earlier. A spacious area is necessary for shooting. If you’ve got a house that fits this description and you’re up for some fun, let me know as soon as possible!

Thanks to all of you who have been tweeting, texting, emailing and commenting about hearing my song in the new Colgate Wisps commercial! What’s better than two cuties smooching to my song???

If you don’t have my latest album, you can get it HERE and have your very own make-out fest!

The April Smith Virtual Closet (Tutu’s, Dior, Vintage!)

Welcome, welcome to our second edition of the She’s Smart Virtual Closet Series. This time we talked to April Smith, of the musical act April Smith and The Great Picture Show. Their song “Terrible Things” is featured in the Weeds season 6 promo.

How would you define your sense of style?

I have a very costume-y style…big skirts, feathers, heels. A little cabaret, a little Victorian…a mix of old styles.

My dog just started doing this really funny thing with her food. Since you all know her, I figured I’d share it with you! Watch Scout pick up her “carry out”…
