Next Door Chicago

Coming up on December 7th, Joel Brown, Ian Simkins and myself are going to be playing a show at Next Door Chicago in Lincoln Park, IL from 5-7 p.m. We’re excited to be debuting our newest unheard material amongst our friends. It’s going to be an evening of music, friends and hopefully drinks afterwards ;). Hope to see you all there.

Rehearsals on the top floor, we’re working through new material that we will be debuting in December. It’s hard to believe how long it has been since we’ve played a show and we’re excited to see some familiar faces. Our friend Ian Simkins will be drumming with us which is bringing an especially fun dynamic to the new material. Can’t wait for you all to hear.

Evolution of an OCD Songwriter

Nat Brooke - Set lists

Nat Brooke - Music books

Nat Brooke - Crochet Blankets

Nat Brooke - Marble

All of my songs used to be written in notebooks and on hundreds of pieces of paper scattered around my floor. I had to walk over them in the middle of the night. That was the way I liked it. I literally slept on all those ideas. This is obviously an evolution into something like adulthood, still making set lists on the floor.. pretty little set lists.

Nat Brooke - chicks and ducks

Spending lots of time this fall camped out at our friends Peter & Jessi’s midwestern compound. Making music and all day brunches. Following their chicks and ducks around their property. Nothing I love more than sipping on a big pot of earl gray tea full of Peter’s families organic honey while playing on their white piano. Heavenly.

Somehow I made it my entire life without ever visiting New York. How can that be? I got to spend an unforgettably warm weekend this September visiting some of my most favorite people. I could never say anything that hasn’t been said ten thousand times over. It’s expansive – and I loved it.
