REVIEW: Sarah Darling, Jenn Bostic, and Emily Brooke in South Florida

Occasionally you go to an intimate show and are fortunate to experience an incredible performer up close and personal. Very rarely are you able to have that experience multiplied by three. On February 26th in Jupiter, Florida, Nashville recording artist, Sarah Darling; UK chart topper, Jenn Bostic; and local teenage prodigy, Emily Brooke, shared the stage at Tiki 52 for one night only … And it was a night that attendees won’t soon forget.

Emily Brooke opened the night with a bang, almost literally, as she took on Miranda Lambert’s “Kerosene.” As always, Emily charmed the crowd immediately with her soulful voice, stunning guitar playing, and adorable personality, made especially apparent by the huge smile that crossed her face when the audience joined her in a loud “HA!” during this hot opener. In true Emily Brooke fashion, she introduced almost every song, told cute little stories, made herself giggle, and, like a seasoned professional, swiftly returned to her set list seamlessly. A crowd favorite was Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel,” which Emily introduced and then, elatedly, said that she heard someone in the audience say how much she loved this song. Onlookers sang and clapped along as Emily strummed the guitar and crooned this popular tune that oftentimes receives a warm reception and rave reviews. Other highlights of Emily’s set list included Hunter Hayes’ “All You Ever,” The Civil Wars’ “Devil’s Backbone,” and original song (on Emily’s Here Right Now album with a corresponding video on YouTube) “Dance Hall.”

What do you get when you bring Sarah Darling, Jenn Bostic, and Emily Brooke together for one night only? An evening jam-packed with incredible talent and fun, as well as the unique opportunity to see three extremely different artists team up to entertain one South Florida crowd. Sarah, Jenn, and Emily have decided to join forces with Tiki 52 (a Jupiter, Florida restaurant/bar) and Miller Lite on Wednesday night, February 26th, for a show like no other. In one show, the audience will get a well-known, long-time country artist with charted hits and television cameos galore; a country/pop artist with a collection of awards and acclaim in the United Kingdom; and an up and coming country artist who is sure to be among the next wave of young talent entering the music industry. And, as if that isn’t enough, the concert will benefit “For the Linds,” an organization created in memory of Warner Music Nashville’s Lindsay Walleman, who passed away from Sarcoma at the young age of twenty-eight.¬†Does it get any better than this?

REVIEW: Danielle Bradbery’s Self-Titled Debut Album

Danielle Bradbery Album

Exactly eight months ago today, a sweet, Texas-born and raised sixteen-year-old named Danielle Bradbery performed Taylor Swift‘s “Mean” on NBC’s The Voice. Fast forward three months and Danielle Bradbery was a household name as Season Four’s champion from Team Blake, coached by country megastar, Blake Shelton. Danielle’s self-titled debut album with record label Big Machine Records hit stores and iTunes today, and fans will not be disappointed in the project they have been anticipating since Danielle was declared “The Voice.”

Danielle’s album — a fifteen-track disc with four popular covers, two previously recorded songs, and nine originals — offers fans a little bit of everything from the youngest winner of The Voice and Team Blake protege. Fans are already familiar with tracks 12-15, all songs performed by Danielle on live television during the competition. “Jesus Take the Wheel,” “Born To Fly,” “Maybe It Was Memphis,” and “Who I Am” are some of Danielle’s fans’ favorite covers from The Voice, and are a throwback to Danielle’s music industry roots and a way to pay homage to where she came from.

Emily Brooke’s “Dance Hall” Video Premiere

Last night was the release of Emily Brooke‘s Dance Hall music video at Mason’s in the Lowes Vanderbilt Hotel. This is the first music video off Emily’s album, Here Right Now, produced by Billy Yates.

Sara Kauss of Parasol Production (@_Parasol_), the Producer of the Dance Hall music video, met Emily at a concert event at Sara and Zak Kauss’s ranch in Florida, where Emily performed on the Fourth of July. Immediately, Sara recognized something extremely special in the young artist and, without hesitation, determined Emily’s was a career in which she truly believed and of which she offered her support. The Dance Hall music video is Parasol Production‘s first major project, and a flawless one, indeed.

After polling Emily’s fan base, Dance Hall (which later became a track on Danielle Bradbery‘s debut album) was selected as the first music video off of Here Right Now. Dance Hall, which was written by April Geesbreght, Molly Reed, and Nicole Gaylon, was a song that Emily knew she wanted to record upon first listen. “I instantly fell in love with the song after hearing it!” Emily explained in her speech at her music video premiere party.

Without further ado, we present to you Emily’s first, and certainly not last, music video — Dance Hall!
