ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brooke began writing music at the age of 8 in response to the hot six grader living next door to her suburban home in Saint Louis, Missouri. Shortly thereafter, he moved, and the following years were spent focusing on dance, jazz standards, and theatre.

Cut to the turn of the millennium. She picked up songwriting again playing bass, harmonizing, and dancing as part of two prominent San Francisco bands, performing at the Red Devil Lounge, Tongue and Groove, Bottom of the Hill, and at such events as the Exotic Erotic Ball at Cow Palace.

While based in Hollywood, Brooke toured the SW and NW as a solo artist, playing festivals such as ROCKRGRL and BAM, and returning to local venues like The Mint with her trio. Brooke can silence a room when she opens her mouth and stir it back up again with her poignant lyrics, tongue-in-cheek attitude, and her own personal blend of good-nature and sass.

Crowd favorites include that first song ever written about the boy next door, as well as the songs about her imperfections and the difficulty of trying to get a date for Passover…when you’re not Jewish.

Off-stage, Brooke has performed her tunes on both KCSN’s “Tied to the Tracks” with Larry Wines and in the critically acclaimed 2008 indie feature “I'm Through With White Girls”.

Brooke is currently based in San Francisco pursuing her songwriting and love for Musical Theatre. She can also be found sharing her theatrical flair and love for standards in local jazz bars when she takes advantage of her guitar-less hands by crooning out the classics and coercing a patron or two into doing a little two-step.

I Wanna Hang Out with this Chick
It's rare when an artist can have a conversation with you through their music, but Brooke Michael makes me feel like she's kicking it in my living room. Intimate, aching, funny, smart-aleck... this album is my all-time favorite when I wanna girl-out and lose myself. Her lyrics are second only to her melodious, laid-back delivery. When is MTV gonna get a clue?

Great vocals, smart lyrics
Brooke Michael's voice has a way of sounding as if it's just floating around and happens to land on the right notes. In other words, natural and not over-rehearsed. The vocals alternate effortlessly between a breathy, almost ethereal quality and a rocker-chick intensity. The songs are beautifully written. As someone who's had some painful relationships with emotionally unavailable partners, I can relate. But my favorite song on the album, "Crooked," is not about relationships. The sentiment is similar to Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful," but it's actually done WELL. Its simplicity, specificity and nakedness make it one of those perfect songs that just stays with you. Every time I hear it, I cry!

this arrangment of songs has an ambiant and natural flow.its hard to listen to them without thinking about pj harvey and sonic youth.the thing i find hard to ignore are the parodies and timelessness that this record exudes....
