Brooke has a remarkable ability to juggle her career as both a recording artist and an actor led to her sharing the stage and screen with such performers as The Gin Blossoms, Cindy Lauper, and Alan Cumming, as well as singing the National Anthem for the New York Knicks. No less than The New York Times has praised her acting ability as Brooke went on to star in six other legit shows as well as several roles on TV and in film since that first audition.
“As a musician, I feel like my biggest accomplishment was successfully making the transition from Broadway performer to that of a respected writer who other well-known writers want to work with and making a second home for myself in Nashville.”
Spending a lot of time in Nashville and teaming with her producer, Fred Mollin, Brooke combined elements of pop, country, and rock in her songwriting and performing, and yet managed to create a sound unique and all her own for her upcoming release.
“I’m very excited about this new album because it sounds different than what everyone is doing right now,” she says. “We’ve come up with a sound mainly focused on live instrumentation with a couple of electronic effects just for atmosphere. I get to sing my face off with these arrangements as opposed to holding myself back.”
The result of these efforts is the album, Cry Like A Girl. Brooke explains, “I named the album after one of the lead tracks because that particular song has such a clear message that embodies the collection as a whole. It’s a statement about self-discovery and the strength that comes with embracing your emotions and allowing yourself to heal and grow. Human beings are resilient and I believe music can be the best reminder of that. I hope that the journey for the listeners can be as empowering and healing as it was for me to write it.”
She told CheeseburgerBlog about her latest song “…my latest video for ‘Cry Like A Girl’. It is my statement about self-discovery and the power that comes with embracing your emotions and allowing yourself to grow.”
