Brooke McBride is a "no fluff," "no filler" singer/songwriter that prides herself in just being downright real.
The North Carolina native is defined by her raw, sultry and smoky vocals as her signature; her rockin’ live performance is “country music at its best with a razor edge.” Brooke made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2013. She studied at University of North Carolina at Wilmington and transferred to Belmont University where she earned her B.B.A. in Music Business and graduated Cum Laude. Her keen knowledge and understanding of the music business, contracts, publishing royalties and production led her to launch her independent label, Like Bam Records, to become a full-time musician and recording artist. Brooke wrote, recorded and co-produced a 10-song project (SO MUCH TO SAY) during her senior year in high school; she followed with the release of her debut EP, aptly titled SONGS ABOUT CAROLINA, in 2014.
From Massachusetts to Montana, the young entertainer, road warrior and self-titled “booking agent” has toured across the country with nearly 100 dates a year on her tour schedule.
Driven by lyrical content, instrumentation and a “good hook,” Brooke’s musical influences encompass Alison Krauss, Johnny Cash, Lee Ann Womack, Lori McKenna, Brandy Clark and Fleetwood Mac. Brooke’s talents have been recognized early in her career by the entertainment industry and television producers. She was acknowledged as a Carolina Music Award nominee for “Best Female Country Artist” (2013), a featured extra on the hit ABC Television series Nashville, and she made an appearance in the promotional commercial created for the 2013 CMA Awards (Nashville). In 2016, Brooke released the single, "Can't Get Away" -- a song that addresses and identifies the differences and similarities between the demons and obstacles presented on and off the road. She will release her new six-song EP, titled COMING CLEAN, in Fall 2019.
