"Artist to Watch: Caroline Brooks"

"The first thing you may notice about Caroline Brooks is that she is fierce. The Tyler, Texas, native has piercing eyes and an attitude that dares you to challenge her. Brooks is slowly climbing the charts of the indie singer/songwriter scene, as her single “Parachute” rose to #16 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart and was first featured in the trailer for the Kate Hudson film, A Little Bit of Heaven. Brooks recently released the heartwarming music video for “Parachute”, starring herself and former WWE star Shad Gaspard, in which the two embark on a journey that displays the song’s theme of strength and courage. I dare you to watch this video and not be moved.

Brooks’ lyrics remind me a bit of Sarah Bareilles, while her vocal abilities bring to mind Kelly Clarkson -- it doesn’t just roar, it thunders. I would not be surprised to see Brooks edge her way to the top of the charts in the very near future." - Young Hollywood

The track first gained recognition through its premiere in the movie trailer for A Little Bit of Heaven, starring Kate Hudson. The song is gritty, raw, and appeals to an inner darkness we all battle when pursuing a passion. An instant hit, Parachute is a must download purchase for your iTunes library.

The singer's previously released track, Tomorrow, Tonight, garnered heavy media attention through Entertainment Tonight and the Huffington Post. Brooks is conquering defeat and cultivating a following - this Texas Ex isn't going anywhere but through your speakers." - Examiner

Bio

Raised in Tyler, Texas, Caroline Brooks' childhood home was saturated with the folk and pop melodies of artists such as Paul Simon, Lyle Lovett, Elvis, Queen, and The Beatles. Her love of music led her to the University of Texas in Austin where she was a member of the renowned a cappella group, Ransom Notes. After leaving UT, Caroline moved to Los Angeles and began collaborating with songwriters such as Jim Collins (Kenny Chesney's "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," Jason Aldean), Phredley Brown (Musical Director for Bruno Mars), and David Hodges (Christina Perris A Thousand Years, Kelly Clarksons Because of You, Evanescences Bring Me to Life). She started touring nationwide, developing loyal fan bases in cities as diverse as Austin, Washington D.C., New York, and Los Angeles.

With a sound reminiscent of Sara Bareilles and OneRepublic, Caroline digitally released her debut self-titled EP in 2010. The industry took notice of her innate sense of song structure and melody, prompting ASCAP President Paul Williams to say, "[Caroline] is really, really talented. I predict a very successful career." Soon, offers for TV, film, and commercial placements began coming in. This led to her song "Parachute" to being featured in a trailer for the film A Little Bit of Heaven, starring Kate Hudson. 

In April 2013, she released her single Tomorrow, Tonight, which spread rapidly after receiving enthusiastic press from sources including Entertainment Tonight, AOL, Artists on Demand, In Magazine (featured on the cover), and The Huffington Post. Shortly afterwards, she released her single "Parachute" with the accompanying music video starring WWE former wrestler Shad Gaspard, which spread rapidly and caused the single to shoot up to #15 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. It was then featured on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter front page under "Editor's Choice."

In addition to her work as an artist, Caroline volunteers as a piano and songwriting mentor for The 24 Foundation a foundation providing art therapy for at-risk youth through various art forms by using creativity as the catalyst for healing the soul. 

She is currently working on new material for her EP to be released in late 2013.
