Brooke Northrop

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.
My real name is Brooke Northrop, born on March 31, 1988 in Fort Collins, Colorado. I got lucky being born in beautiful Colorado, growing up appreciating nature with plenty of camping, hiking and learning how to ride a four wheeler around the mountains at a pretty young age. My parents always taught me the importance of adventure, they are some of the coolest people around, both music lovers and my Dad being the one to teach me my first chords on the guitar.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.
I grew up with my dad playing guitar for us at night after dinner sometimes, I became pretty mesmerized by the sound of those strings that I told him to teach me some chords one night when I was probably about 12. I was hooked. There was usually music of some kind playing in our house most of the time. I also had a cousin with an unbelievable voice who inspired me to start writing songs. Since then, I’ve lived in Los Angeles and worked with some different producers out there, but nothing really seemed to be the right fit. I now live in Denver and am working with some wonderful people here one of them being a producer named Chase Martinez. We seem to vibe musically and we’ve become great friends who have a really good time making music. He lives in Nashville now, and he’s killing it. We just started putting out songs and it’s gone well so far. I’m looking forward to more.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.
I have considered myself a soul/acoustic/indie artist for a long time, playing shows just with me and my guitar. Recently I’ve been adding electronic to that and it’s added a modern element that’s been fun to spice things up. I like to make music that makes me feel good, I write songs and play music as a self-therapy and I hope that other people feel that as well, I want it to always comes from a genuine place.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.
Hmmm…basically what I said previously about wanting my music to come from a genuine place of emotion. I don’t know if anything connects people more powerfully than music. I’m not sure why that is but I’m just happy music exists and we have ears. If it comes from the right place, whether it’s a sad heart-break song or a feel good groove, whoever is listening is going to feel that way. I think that’s a cool way to connect to each other.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.
My good friend Chase Martinez produced this track. As I’ve said previously he is incredibly talented and he splits his time between Denver and Nashville now. He is also in a band Redlands as a bass player, and he is one of the most musically multi-talented and driven people I know.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.
I’ve been in and out of the industry for probably about 8 years. I have learned to be picky with who you work with and for me, I have to click well musically and personally with whoever I’m working with, you spend a lot of time together, it’s important to vibe.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
I need music to survive life. Listening heals me as much as writing does. I tend to be a deep feeler with my emotions. If I am happy, I am ecstatic and like to spread it around, if I’m sad I go to dark places and writing is just an outlet for what’s going on inside.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.
I am just excited to see what happens with more songs we’re putting out in the future. I’m not positive about what will happen next, maybe some shows and some trips to Nashville.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.  
We have a couple songs up on Spotify and itunes and I believe we are going to send some tracks out to local radio stations soon.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
I always come up with a chord progression I like first. Then I start humming along, looking for a solid melody. Once I have some ideas down I usually jump to writing lyrics. I feel that it flows better if you write lyrics last, set the mood first, then elaborate with words.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars. 
My family members would all get whatever they want. Then I’d probably try to help some people that actually need it. After that, it’s travel time to Europe and the the tropics for sure.
