2016 and 2017 were massive years for Brooke Sharkey. A critically acclaimed new album (Wandering Heart), a record deal, an album launch at the iconic Jazz Café, the Guardian tipping her as one of their Future 50 artists to watch, and a joint headline show at London’s Union Chapel with Blick Bassy which was voted second best gig of the year 2017!
But it was also a transformative period for Brooke’s music. Just as she was about to tour her new album, she wrote a song called New Start (which later became New Star) that felt as though it came from a very different place. This song was to be the beginning of a new creative period for Brooke, giving her the impetus to experiment with new sounds, and to return to performing solo in a more stripped back set up.
As is always the case with Brooke, her songs are uniquely personal and her new show is a chronicle of her journey over the past 12 months. This is song-writing in English and French, that inspires self-reflection, healing, and acknowledge strength in vulnerability, shining a light on universal experiences in a searingly honest but ultimately positive way.
