Katey Brooks, Never Gonna Let Her Go Review
Connect with Katey Brooks: Facebook |
Over a career spanning four continents, Katey Brooks has been blazing her own trail. She plays a number of instruments, but refuses to call herself a multi-instrumentalist (‘too much pressure’) and has produced several of her own records. Brooks has an unusual upbringing that she feels shapes her music. Growing up inside a cult, as a child, Brooks found refuge in song. “It was a very chaotic upbringing, full of some pretty colorful and sometimes unsavory, characters. But when I sang, I felt free and connected. For as long as I can remember, it’s been my way of getting what I need to say out”, she reveals. Brooks’ life has been filled with more than her fair share of tragedy. “When I was 22 my mum got ill and she died. And then not long after that, my lifelong best friend went missing and she also died. That’s definitely had an effect on the course of my life and my writing. I guess I’m lucky that I have songs that I can write, as a means to deal with things.” Her latest single, “Never Gonna Let Her Go,” is produced by Katey Brooks and engineered, mixed and Mastered by Paul Quinn. “Never Gonna Let Her Go” is beautifully conceived musical poetry.

Brooks has an endearing voice, that cuts to the core the moment she sings. Her lyrics are equally moving.
