Brooke Bentham 'Everyday Nothing' LP
The debut album from Brooke Bentham ‘Everyday Nothing’ follows two EPs of music shored up by intense reflection which has earned the 23 year old many admirers and a rapidly growing fanbase. The young singer/ songwriter writes sharp and eloquent songs about her experiences as she understands them, using words and music to resolve and record the tensions of young adulthood.
Brooke’s raw and emotive sound already has gained her serious plaudits from the press. NME and Loud & Quiet were early champions whilst The Times calls her music “austerely beautiful” and DIY Magazine “bewitching”. She has recently been announced as the main support on Sam Fender’s sold out tour, with Bill Ryder-Jones joining her live band.
Ryder-Jones who produced the album and also co wrote some of the tracks here, was so impressed with Brooke’s observational lyricism that he said: “I’ve worked with some amazing songwriters in my career. I think Brooke at 23 is well on her way to being up there with Alex (Turner), Saint Savoir, Mick (Head) and James (Skelly). Her lyric writing will be overlooked because of her voice but it is her words that will set her apart from others.”
