BROOKE SHARKEY (UK)

An introspective sound adorned with emotional vocals and sliding string sections that create a tense air of melancholy that few others can master so simply and so elegantly, Brooke Sharkey oozes a creativity that radiates emotion. Her vocal style switches effortlessly between lithely melodic and fiery, set against a deeply atmospheric musical backdrop, so comparisons with the likes of Kate Bush, Ane Brun and Cat Power are inevitable. What sets her apart is her songwriting, with its unique phrasing and sense of space. With four releases since 2010 under her belt, including the acclaimed ‘One Dress’ and ‘I Crossed the Line’, Brooke is ready to release her much anticipated, second, full album.
