JUNE 2017 - After four and a half wonderful, snowy, challenging, spiritually fulfilling, hilarious and humid years in Winnipeg, Brooke Wylie has returned to to reside in her home town of Calgary, Alberta. The decision to return home largely stemmed from missing her music community of origin in the Southern Alberta region.
Since returning home, Brooke has been busy putting together a few musical projects! You will be able to find her regularly hosting the Open Mic Nites at Mikey's Juke Joint in Calgary along with co host Jay Bowcott! Brooke is also putting together her first full band in over 5 years - this is an exciting venture! Stayed tuned for shows and hopefully soonish, a new recording!
A bit about the music, written by Keane Eng, Esq.:
Brooke Wylie is a uniquely Canadian Country/Roots singer-songwriter from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
With a signature voice and beautifully-crafted songs, Brooke’s distinct style of music and quirky tales about love and the Canadian landscape span three albums and performances throughout Canada.
Her latest album, Don’t Waste the Silence, is an eclectic collection of emotional pop-country songs and remarkable musicianship.
Brooke’s performances are all about entertainment, delivering big, fun songs along with stories and laughter. Featuring her remarkable voice, Brooke’s songwriting is simple yet deeply personal, and set to music that ranges from foot-stompin’ barn-burners to heart-breaking ballads.
Originally from Calgary (Alberta), Brooke lived in Edinburgh (Scotland) and Winnipeg (Manitoba) before returning to Calgary in 2017 for a new start, new music, and new stories to sing. Brooke performs her original music and select covers either as a solo, duo, or full band.
