"A Crystal clear voice, poetic grace and a maturity that runs deep in talent".
-Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live
Brooke Fox lit up the downtown singer/songwriter scene after relocating to New York from Nashville in 2000. With a "strong yet vulnerable" set of songs, Fox''s effortless vocals and direct lyrics draw a decidedly optimistic reality of relationships and human response. She has performed solo and with her acoustic trio for audiences in clubs, festivals and colleges around the country.
"NightLight is an album that should be in your collection".
-Nashville Music Guide
"NightLight", recorded in Nashville and now in it''s second pressing, takes on many faces and moods as it journeys. The instrumentation gently shifts and leans in to each song as it unfolds its own story. "Eclipse", an acoustic-pop gem, and ode to codependency crashes into "Switch It Off", a kiss-off rocker. Later, the Jazz standard lament "Here and Gone" melts into the dreamy, shimmering love song "Seamless". Fans of the record seem to all have different tracks they connect to.
"This young woman is a poet on fire,"
- Laurel Boland of Sensored Magazine.
On first glance, the strikingly pale Fox, glowing under the stage lights, is simply fair-skinned but her lilywhite features are actually the result of albinism, a rare genetic trait that also causes legal blindness and sensitivity to light. She recently shared her experiences in an autobiographical article, "The art of Albinism" published in the NOAH News and the National Federation of the Blind''s Braille Monitor Newsletter.
Remarkably, little 5-year-old Brooke seemed to thrive in the flood of the spotlight, performing all through her childhood years in Northern California. Fox was surrounded by music and her obsession with song craft was founded early. She began creating her own songs in front of the Fox family piano at the age of eight and went on to earn her Bachelor''s Degree in Songwriting at Boston''s Berklee College of Music. "As soon as I heard you could major in Songwriting, I was filling out the Berklee application." She says. "In fact, I was bummed when they told me I had to wait until my second semester to declare my major. I was certain." Fox''s educational investment in her craft has not gone unnoticed. Specifically, from NightLight, "Eclipse" and "Don''t Fall Back" received 2003 Billboard Song Contest Honorable Mentions and "Here and Gone" won "Best Vocal Jazz Song of the Year" at the 2004 Just Plain Folks Awards.
She says of her original work: "If it doesn''t move people in its purest form, I know I need to dig deeper."
