Known internationally for her work as leading roles in both the HBO hit series "Less Than Kind", and Netflix series "Between", the Winnipeg native has had her Juno nominated music featured in television programs including the aforementioned Less Than Kind, Flashpoint (seen on CTV) Kim's Convenience, Avocado Toast, Cheap Whine and feature films The Colossal Failure of the Modern Relationship and Hazy Little Thing. The Willow (2014) was Brooke's debut recording, written in her teens as an eight track introspective journey with a primary focus on her earlier influences, its folk sound still has its place firmly rooted in the Manitoba music scene. The release of Juno Nominated Midnight (2019) followed five years later with its distinct sound reflecting Brooke's personal journey since moving to Toronto.
Having lent her vocals as the touring backup singer for Francesco Yates, spending years as a member on the writing team for George Nozuka, and playing alongside homegrown powerhouses like JP Saxe, NEFE, Jordan John, Justin Nozuka and Melissa Bel, Brooke has proven that independent artistry is packed full with the unexpected. With the two Juno noms for her latest work and a growing fanbase, Brooke is determined to create a genre-bending series of releases with latest project "arthouse" - a project which ambitiously seeks to spread the creative wealth with different writers and producers on the tracks. Inspired by musicians ranging from Jessie Ware and Anderson Paak to Begonia and Sabrina Claudio, Brooke is determined to leave her own mark on the industry one album at a time.
