Rachel Brooke

“She’s a charismatic, drawling low alto with a terrific, conversational delivery on this bluesy strut. There’s a great deal of promise here.” -Robert Oermann, Music Row Magazine 

“Twangy and Powerful”- Parade Magazine 

“Brooke is a revelation that’s both retro and modern — and as real as the rural place she calls home. Which all makes us very happy to be premiering a good example of her prodigious talent” -Cowboys and Indians Magazine 

“Sturgill Simpson officially reignited interest in the kind of outlaw country that cats like Waylon Jennings made popular in the 70’s. Others would soon follow. I have always been surprised that this hasn’t happened on the women’s side of the microphone with the same amount of haste…That slot was left for Rachel Brooke” -Disciples of Sound

" Rachel Brooke is not only a singular talent, if you ask me she is a national treasure." -Saving Country Music 

“..we should all be keeping our eyes on her.” –Shooter Jennings 

Brooke grew up in a bluegrass/folk family but rocked out in a punk band as a teenager. Now she’s living in northern Michigan and recorded the tracks on her new album without computers — now that’s killer." -Craig Shelburne, CMT  

"..one of the most naturally-blessed voices in country today" - Saving Country Music

Rachel Brooke with Modern Mal:  

Modern Mal are what might happen if blurry reincarnations of Leonard Cohen and Dolly Parton hooked up to form a bent Americana band in the Michigan north woods..(B+) - Robert Christgau, Noisey/ Vice  

“An intriguing piece of art." - Popmatters.com 

We’ve all looked up at the night sky hoping to see some kind of transcendent celestial sight — a shooting star, an eclipse, something from The X-Files. Those sights happen rarely, though, but that doesn’t mean there still isn’t beauty to be found in simply looking. -American Songwriter 

..attention to melodic detail makes for a stirring experience, but it is ultimately their exceptional lyricism that will bring listeners back again and again. -Atwood Magazine
