Brisbane singer-songwriter Brooke Schubert has shared stages with some of the worlds biggest artists, but her career is only just beginning.
From blues to country to rock, Brooke writes, records and performs it all!
Brooke is no stranger to music lovers, having had her profile boosted with appearances on The Voice and Australian Idol, but she had been touring since she was young, having performed with the Dead Ringer Band when she was nine. Kasey Chambers is still a major inspiration.
The hardworking artist has always toured and gigged, with her career boosted when she moved from Moranbah to Brisbane. “The move allowed me to be around other creative people, which has increased the festivals I am playing, but also overall my happiness,” Brooke said.
Brooke recorded an EP in Music City USA, Nashville, with Australian musicians and producers Matt Fell and Sam Hawksley, and has since released a single in 2019, but is back in the studio with Jared Adlam, ready to unleash new original music.
The upcoming recording of her next album is a reflection all her inspirations as she moves seamlessly between blues, rock, country and folk.
“My style has always been on the bluesy and rock side of country; it’s where I feel most comfortable singing and writing,” Brooke said.
“It’s very vocal and riff-driven and I’m so excited about doing this because I’ve had such a clear vision of where this is going, I write songs with my live show at the forefront of my mind. My new songs don’t create any boundaries, musically, because I love lover of music first. If I’m not playing festivals, I’m attending Bluesfest and CMA fest in the states. My music is more a feeling than one genre…but my roots and songwriting are country through and through. It all comes from the heart.”
Brookes new album is a collection of songs written and co written by herself, Kaylee Bell, Graeme Connors and Jerry Flowers.
