Singer-songwriter/guitarist Brooke Annibale shines by way of her magnetic voice and expressive songwriting capabilities, with influence from her family’s musical history. Originally from Pittsburgh, her family’s creative roots run deep—her grandfather founded a guitar shop and live sound production company, which continues to operate today. Brooke’s latest full-length record, Hold to the Light, continues to push sonic boundaries by offering a fusion of textured electronic and traditional (guitar, strings, keys) instrumentation while remaining true to her acoustic beginnings. Produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive) and featuring guest musicians Josh Kaufman (The National), Matt Douglas (Sylvan Esso) and Zach Hickman (Ray Lamontagne, Josh Ritter), Hold to The Light marks several major departures for Brooke in terms of both songwriting and production. Brooke’s thoughtful, layered songwriting anchors the production to explore a range of narratives working through themes of seeking truths, letting go, and reconciling the past with the present.
