Announces Further 2017 UK Tour Dates
New Music This Autumn
Debut EP – ‘The Room Swayed’ – Out Now
“We think Brooke Bentham might be the Angel (Olsen) of the North” - Loud & Quiet
However, with her sights now set on the future and a forthcoming new release, Brooke will be hitting the road for whole new run of headline UK shows. Kicking off at the Moth Club in London on the 4th October, Brooke will also take in shows at an array of cities including Reading, Brighton, Cardiff, Bristol, Newcastle upon Tyne, Glasgow throughout the autumn. Full dates and details below.
Aged just twenty one, Brooke Bentham’s music nonetheless carries the weight of someone who’s lived a hundred lives already. She was born and raised in Southshields (just outside Newcastle) before relocating to New Cross to study at Goldsmith’s (where she is in the final stages of her degree). Already, her songwriting swells and plummets in ways which feel as inspired by the epic alt rock journeying of War On Drugs or Ryan Adams as the emotional vocal depths of Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen: all shot through with remarkably personal, direct lyricism which suggests a maturity and life ethic that’s wise beyond her years. ’The Room Swayed’ may have been written in an admittedly challenging period, but the results suggest Brooke Bentham is now looking firmly towards a bright future.
Produced by Ben Baptie (Daughter, Adele, Lapsley), Brooke’s head-turning debut EP, ‘The Room Swayed’, was released in June 2017.
Brooke Bentham will play the following UK dates this Autumn:
