Brooke's New Quest

Brooke's New Quest

Who: Brooke Harvey
Where: Lass O' Gowrie
When: Friday December 29, 2000

SEAHAM singer-songwriter BROOKE HARVEY happily left talent quests behind last year, after frustrations caused by comments that her original songs were either 'too country' or 'not country enough'.

Instead Harvey, who will perform her final gig for 2000 this Friday at the Lass O'Gowrie, has decided to take her distinctive music to appreciative pub audiences.

The 17-year-old performs 'a mix of covers and a few originals' on acoustic guitar. She has performed since about age 10, and at talents quests from 12 to 16 years.

Her influences range from LUCINDA WILLIAMS and RICKY SKAGG to MELISSA ETHERIDGE, and account for her original sound.

Her own song SHINY CAR featured on HUGH GORDON's SMOKESTACK compilation CD, which gained airplay on ABC 1233.
