Americana singer Brooke Nickerson has a very classic, yet modern sound that borders between country and pop. She has released a new, sugar-coated, but bittersweet sounding single, entitled “The River“, now available from Star1 Entertainment. This is perfectly balanced, entertaining and well-produced track. Brooke’s voice represents the usual standard of excellence for female country artists. Her style, beauty and unassuming attitude are both refreshing and endearing. Brooke has garnered tons of experience in her craft as she has performed in France, Spain, Belgium, Ireland, and Thailand, besides her USA series of gigs.
Brooke Nickerson impresses with the easy power, perfect pitch and rich warm tone of her voice. She just takes a song and wrings every emotion out of it with her simple vocal nuances. The other aspect of her vocal presence is that it is devoid of theatrics that many singers seem to think they need to do. With subtle vocal expressions and not much else, she focuses on the song and the presentation of the story. Her charisma also comes shining through. I can’t define it, but it’s there. Maybe it’s the pure honesty that is coming across.
Brooke has such a sweet, melodic voice that is so easy on the ears. I played “The River” on my ride home a few times and it really makes the trip go so faster. Her vocal range is deceptively wide, especially her top range. She has a pure tonal quality which sort of charms the ear, while the music is smooth, natural and beautiful. Unlike the bellowing and balking of the ladies currently clogging the charts, Brooke delivers a clear melodic style of singing.
If you are into traditional stuff, more modern sounds, power ballads, or just some feel-good music, then you should find this song to your liking, as it covers all of those territories in varying doses. Brooke Nickerson already appears to be on track to as a serious Country-Pop contender in the music business and I look forward to seeing her become a future Headliner. She is a natural talent, and her music is pure and effortless, as demonstrated on the single, “The River”.
