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.
