In general, the idea of being sandwiched in between Rihanna and Lady Gaga doesn’t sound too shabby. But, being sandwiched in between their respective albums on the iTunes charts, sounds even better. Well, that’s exactly how it went down for Jersey born songstress APRIL SMITH and her band April Smith and the Great Picture Show. Though still completely unsigned, April’s massive fan base rallied together and catapulted her latest release, Songs For A Sinking Ship, to number fourteen on the charts. Not only did she surpass signed artists at this chart position, but she surpassed household names as well.

Well, aside from the fact that we all love Tony Danza…this NFL spot. We recorded a cover of “You Don’t Own Me” which is featured in the ad, along with the beautiful Alyssa Milano and her women’s wear clothing line, Touch! The track was produced by J Dynamite & Clay Holley for Truth & Soul Productions in Brooklyn. Those guys are incredible! Check it out and let us know what you think!
