The new single “Cry Like A Girl” (Mixed by Chris Lord Alge)
Native New Yorker Brooke Moriber knew what she wanted to do from an early age. “When I was 8 years old I heard my parents playing the cast album for Les Misérables. When the young girl came on singing ‘Castle on a Cloud’ I begged my parents to let me audition.” Little did her parents know that their daughter’s wish would turn into a career that would span the worlds of Broadway and Nashville.
Critically acclaimed for her “clarion voice” by the Associated Press and songs that are “destined for high rotation”, Brooke Moriberʼs debut Nashville album Cry Like A Girl is almost here!
“I named the album after one of the lead tracks because the message of that particular song embodies the collection as a whole. Itʼs a statement about the strength that comes with embracing your emotions and allowing yourself to heal and grow.”
Brooke began her singing career at the age of 8 by snagging a starring role on Broadway as Young Cosette in Les Miserables. No less than The New York Times has praised her acting ability as Brooke went on to star in six other legit shows as well as several roles on TV and in film. Brooke’s remarkable ability to juggle her career as both a recording artist and an actor led to her sharing the stage and screen with such performers as The Gin Blossoms, Cindy Lauper and Alan Cumming as well as singing the National Anthem for the New York Knicks.
“As a musician, I feel like my biggest accomplishment has been successfully making the transition from Broadway performer to that of a respected writer who other well-known writers want to work with and making a second home for myself in Nashville.”
The result of these efforts is the album, “Cry Like A Girl” with legendary producer Fred Mollin at the helm, and featured tracks mixed by 5 time Grammy winner Chris Lord-Alge.
“Iʼm very excited about this album because it sounds different from what everyone is doing right now. Weʼve come up with a sound mainly focused on live instrumentation with a couple of electronic effects just for atmosphere. Itʼs an emotional rollercoaster and I get to sing my face off with some breathtaking arrangements. Wait until you hear what we are doing with the closing track of the album ‘Shattered Glass’.”
Combining the vocal echoes of Linda Ronstadt, Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, and Lady Gaga, with the lyrical honesty of Billy Joel, Sara Bareilles, and Rachel Platten, Cry Like A Girl represents the best of modern pop music with the emotional connection and pyrotechnic vocals for which Brooke has become known.
The album’s lead focus track, also entitled “Cry Like a Girl,” is available everywhere through The Orchard/Sony with the album soon to follow.
