Perhaps you’ve never heard of April Smith — but if you tuned into MTV’s The Hills or Newport Harbor dramas you’ve no doubt toe-tapped to her grooves. I for one, have never seen either — but after checking out Smith’s MySpace page and listening to a few of her songs, I’ll be skipping the shows and buying the album. This is some brilliant tuneage.

Even better, Smith has just completed her first trek from New York to Chicago on her tour bus that she converted to run on vegetable oil. The bus’s new name? Mr. Belevadere. Instant-awesome. It’s all part of her “April Smith and The Great Picture Show” tour happening this summer. According to our source, the singer is very committed to reducing her band’s carbon footprint and educating her fans and other musicians about how they can do the same. Hey Sting, are you listening?

Smith’s next trip will be from NYC to Boston to perform in an upcoming show on 5/15 at Berklee Performance Center with Ingrid Michaelson and Ari Hest for a great organization called Music Inspires Health.

You can follow April’s progress on the veg-bus tour, play some of her latest music, and just discover more about this up and coming artist over on her MySpace page. Check out a video of one of Smith’s grooves after the jump.
