Never miss another 'Brooke Sharkey' show
Shepard's Delight: Brooke Sharkey
"Dirty stews of gritty folk & blues...Adam Beattie & The Consultants present yet another of their incredible friends, and what a stunning friend they have for us this month. The perfect balance between fiery female singer and delicate, angelic songstress Brooke Sharkey's songs grow ever more diverse as she jumps from Chanson to English folk and even gypsy frenzy. Her music draws in the listener with her 'poetic and enthralling vocals '(folk radio). Her songs are achingly personal, presenting the tribulations of life and complex intimacies in all their vibrant, heartbreaking glory."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Brooke Sharkey has spent most of her life in London and France. She writes gypsy and blues inspired folk ballads in both languages, contrasting cotton wool folk melodies with strong and soulful vocals throughout her songs. Brooke Sharkey’s lyrics are emotional ponderings about relationships and life, its struggles and indeed its glories.
Words and melodies contain hauntingly poetic imagery strongly influenced by her time spent in France and her keen passion for travel, flitting between chanson and traditional English folk with a plethora of genres fused in-between. She has drawn comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush, Ane Brun and Cat Power.
