Pure Pop Records

Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 album form the NOLA-born and Nashville-based singer/songwriter. Music, like fashion, food and a bevy of other cultural landscapes, continually waffles between nostalgia and innovation, cycling through one reinvention to the next. Brooke Waggoner's inherent grasp and commitment to her sound, seems decidedly unconventional considering these patterns of trend. "I found my sound at a pretty young age," says the songwriter, composer and performer. That sound, explored and refined in her latest album, Sweven, draws the notes between her past and present and doesn't hesitate to mine an unusual source - herself. Brooke found herself revisiting her earliest work, captured in a pre-YouTube phase of life, that she had recorded throughout her childhood. "My mom is a big memorabilia person and really pushed me to record everything on cassette tapes at the time. I have every lyric I've written since age nine." Brooke ended up producing the album, and handpicking a close knit group of friends and family to play. The deadline was self-imposed. "My only goal was to finish it before my son was born. It came down literally to the day. I tracked my last set of vocals the afternoon before his arrival."
