Known for her “clarion voice” (Associated Press), Brooke Moriber’s powerhouse vocals and emotional songwriting have connected with audiences from New York City to Nashville – the two towns she calls home.

Growing up in Greenwich Village, Brooke was raised on the sounds of guitar strumming and voices rising through her bedroom window from Washington Square Park and the nightclubs below. She was drawn to music at an early age and at 8 years-old booked her first audition, landing the role of Young Cosette in Les Misérables on Broadway. That was the first of many successes on stage and screen.

Brooke first turned to songwriting when diagnosed with a rare eye disease as a teenager to cope with the debilitating treatments and lack of sight. “I woke up one morning and couldn’t see my face in the mirror.” To the surprise of her doctors, the disease went into remission four years later and Brooke was determined to share her belief in the human spirit through her music. She was soon regularly playing to packed rooms in those downtown clubs like the ones she would curiously try to peek into as a child including The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall and Mercury Lounge. Her local star began to rise, and she played to larger audiences at Jones Beach, opened for the Gin Blossoms at the Wellmont Theater, and performed the national anthem for her hometown New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
