Last year we played our first show with our friend Tyler Sjöström, and within minutes of his set I was so completely entranced by his vocal tone and ability that I knew he was one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever heard live. I don’t say this lightly, I’m a notoriously fickle listener – but if I had to promote one project this year this would be it. Buy Tyler a musical shot of whiskey and help get this album recorded.

The Song In Me | Helping Children Make Music

Nat Brooke | Baby Mun

Tonight I had the pleasure of joining a great group of local Chicago men and women coming together to support a new Organization The Song In Me. The Song In Me provides collaborative opportunities for children with serious medical conditions and special needs to create and record original songs. When a friend of mine got in touch with me explaining the basis of this organization my heart was already so invested in the concept. Children and young people facing life-limiting diseases often have to approach these challenges with the strength of an adult, through music therapy and ultimately recording their own personal piece these children will have an outlet for all of the emotions that they are experiencing which can be a source of boundless encouragement for them and their families. The Song In Me is in its initial stages of growth and could use all of the connective love and support it can get in helping this idea grow further.

February 15th, 2013, over twenty four local, visual, vocal and musical artists gathered together at the Hacienda to promote their artistic works through the art of storytelling. What has now become the annual Folk Nite was a wildly successful event. The turnout was expansive and sometimes uncomfortable as we actually ran out of space to house our guests. This is both a brilliant and crucial realization that this community is growing in the Northern Chicago suburbs. Living outside of a metropolitan city for some artists can be stifling as well as inspiring. Spaciousness in physical surroundings outside of a city environment can bring worlds of inspiration, however having less accessibility to venues in which artists can promote their work and network amongst other artists can become a challenging aspect of living in a more remote area. Folk Nite is a cumulation of artistic endeavors between entertaining our friends and their friends alike to the study of our fellow artists as well as building a community of people who both create and appreciate artistic works. It is a welcoming environment for people to gather, build and share together. If you are interested in becoming a part of future Folk Nites or if you have a venue in mind that would be a accessible gem for such a gathering in the Northern Chicago suburbs you can get in touch with us at info@natbrooke.com as well as visiting Folk Nites Facebook Page or The Hacienda Facebook Page.
