The new year brings a lot of opportunities, with fresh starts and new routines. January is also a great time to get some new music in your ears. With this in mind, we thought we would bring you a new artist that has been on our radar.
Enter Brooke Law, a multicultural talent, that is very proud of her heritage, and really pours it into her music. Last year Brooke released the amazing song See Ya Later, she is set to dominate the sound waves in 2019.
The single is taken from the EP Archetypes, which Brooke dedicates to all women and girls to support them in all they choose to do and be. She gives thanks to all the women who continue to fight for equality, freedom and an end to violence against women and children. We love that an artist is mixing her talents with activism and an important and moving message.
Brooke, like all good musicians, takes her influences from a number of great musicians such as Annie Lennox, Joan Armatrading and Jeff Buckley. Brooke’s music, like her beliefs, is uncompromising: emotional and direct, it truly comes from the heart. Brooke says that it is “gutsy pop”.
Having been obsessed with songwriting since the age of 14, Brooke has developed her style to encompass soul, pop, R&B and Indian influences. Brooke and her band have already started to build a buzz with their first London shows. Brooke Law is an artist whose importance and relevance could scarcely be more keenly felt.
We wanted to dig deeper into Brooke’s music, her inspirations, her work ethic and her motives behind her music. So we grabbed 5 minutes with Brooke and got the inside scoop just for you.
See Ya Later is a really great song, what was the inspiration for the lyrics?
The lyrics are about a woman taking control of who she wants to meet and what she wants to be. She is independent and does not need the security of a relationship. If she wants she can play the field.
The song is super powerful, what would you like your fans to take from it?
I want people to feel empowered and wanna mooove to it.
Great music comes with success, what would you like your career to have an impact on socially?
I think part of the problem of women not being valued equally is because women are still following social norms and flooded with images of female stereotypes.
Women need to support each other and empower each other to follow their dreams. I want my music to challenge society and inspire people.
Where do you draw your musical inspirations from?
I think ultimately my parents have inspired me throughout.. they’ve taught me to not give up and that anything is possible, which is a running theme in my lyrics- whether it be fighting for love, fighting to get higher or fighting for equality.
Who would your dream collaboration be with?
I’d love to work with Odesza.
