Brooke Sharkey – new single, album and tour dates

Brooke Sharkey

Brooke Sharkey will headline London’s Union Chapel and head out on tour with Blair Dunlop.

London based singer-songwriter Brooke Sharkey returns with the release of another outstanding single ‘Offida’. This illustrious song interlaces webs of dreams and fathoms the enchantment of cinema. A brave move for the young artist, but one that is sure to carry her higher in her ever growing success.

‘Offida’ born from Sharkey’s captivating album Wandering Heart, out now, seems to breathe light into the curiosity of love whilst simultaneously casting a haunting spell sending any listener into a dream like state of wonder.

Sharkey has seen plaudits arrive from across the UK and Europe with BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BBC Scotland along with French, Belgium and Dutch national radio all championing the song-smith and The Guardian naming Brooke among the FUTURE 50 most exciting artists in the world.

With a vocal style that switches effortlessly between lithely melodic and fiery, set against a deeply atmospheric musical backdrop and drawing comparisons with the likes of Kate Bush, Ane Brun and Cat Power, her unique sound can be described as:

“An introspective sound adorned with emotional vocals and sliding string sections that create a tense air of melancholy that few others can master so simply and so elegantly, Brooke Sharkey oozes a creativity that radiates emotion. She is a woman who bleeds artistry.” – Fresh Beats.

Busking since the age of 16 around Europe and the UK, most specifically in London, France and Italy, her broad music influences have connected with a multitude of audiences that include Cambridge Folk Festival, Glastonbury, Larmer Tree, Green Man, Secret Garden Party and Broadstairs Folk Festival.

The London based singer-songwriter is set to headline her biggest show to date at the historic Union Chapel, London the location for what is set to be a triumphant return to the capital as part of the London Folk & Roots Festival, 17th November.

Brooke is set to charm audiences across the UK this October and November on tour with Blair Dunlop.
