Silence Worth Breaking
Pittsburgh native Brooke Annibale's music is best described as acoustic pop-folk. Her distinct vocals, lyrical phrasing, and rhythmic guitar playing combine to help her stand out from the crowd of singer-songwriters. Music has always been her passion in life, and at 23-years old she is now releasing her third full-length album. "Silence Worth Breaking" debuts March 15th, and provides listeners with her familiar smooth mellow vocals and lyrics. Brooke believes that music has an unbelievable power to communicate the emotions that we often find difficult to express, and this album gives her the opportunity to express some of those feelings - the joy and pain in our lives that she hopes will ultimately help listeners connect and identify with her music. "Silence Worth Breaking" was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Paul Moak. After working with Brooke in the studio Moak said, "Brooke Annibale is an artist of true depth both as a writer and a performer. Her ability to draw you in with that voice is equally matched by what she has to say once you are there." Moak has worked with national artists Third Day, Jennifer Knapp, Matthew Mayfield, Mat Kearney. The new album was funded by Brooke's fans through a campaign on the crowd-funding website, Kickstarter.com.
