Five track EP ‘Imposter’ is an arms wide open, embrace all offering that encourages us all to step outside our comfort zone to live as authentically as possible. The eponymous title track was written for Brooke’s NYC Song Club where she had promised to deliver something new every two weeks. ‘Imposter’ was her first contribution and analyses her tendency to be her own harshest critic.
Starting with a descending string introduction, the song soon intensifies with the introduction of a dynamic rhythm section and Brooke’s sultry and smooth vocals. A passionate exploration of feeling inadequate, the track is raw in its honesty and relatable in its sentiment. “Runs in the family I come from a long line of pretenders”, sings Brooke in a way that means the lyrics are felt as much as they are heard.
With the forthcoming release of ‘Imposter’ this November, Brooke seems on track to meet and exceed the success of her previous releases that date back over a staggering two decades.
