April March on the cover of her 1996 album, Chrominance Decoder.

April March (real name Elinore Blake, born in California, April 20, 1965) has had one of the more interesting dual careers, as a cartoon animator (including a stint as a principal animator for the Ren and Stimpy show) and as an indie pop singer/songwriter, more popular in France than in Brooklyn, where she was raised, or in her current home of California.

As a child, March became fascinated with France, and jumped at the opportunity to participate in an exchange program in France in junior high. Today, her albums tend to contain songs in both English and French, which draw heavily on themes and styles from French 1960s pop music.

Beginning in the early 1980s, March worked as an animator for Archie Comics and Pee Wee's Playhouse; in 1986 Blake worked on the Madonna feature "Who's That Girl," animating the star in the title sequence and the contemporaneous music video. Her first band, the Pussywillows, was formed in 1987, although their existence was interrupted for a year while March attended the one-year Disney Character Animation program in California. In 1991, the Pussywillows broke up, and March formed the Shitbirds, which lasted until 1995. Since then, March has recorded as a solo artist, and has appeared on some motion picture soundtracks, most notably her remake of Serge Gainsbourg's 'Chick Habit' was featured in the 1999 campy teen comedy 'But I'm a Cheerleader.' Her appeal in the United States may grow with her recent and ongoing collaborations with the Dust Brothers.
