Daniela Brooker - Venezuelan/British Pop Artist
BRITISH/VENEZUELAN POP SENSATION DANIELA BROOKER IS BACK WITH HER NEW SINGLE “HEARTBREAKER” RELEASING MARCH 3RD
Single taken from her forthcoming new debut album P.S.
New York, NY – (February 20, 2013) -- Daniela Brooker has announced plans for her new single, “Heartbreaker,” to be released on Sunday, March 3. The track, taken from her forthcoming new debut album P.S., follows the release of “Chasing The Waves” as a free download late last year, which picked up over 350,000 plays on Youtube alone. “Heartbreaker” showcases the impressive vocal talents of this 19 year old Londoner and the effortless heritage in Brooker’s voice.
Born to a Tupac Shakur loving English dad and a Venezuelan mom, Brooker has been making music for over a third of her young life. At just 12 years old, she wrote her first song. However, unlike most 12 year olds, Brooker didn’t just follow the time-honoured tradition and sketch down some poetry in an adolescent diary then warble a tune into a mobile phone. Displaying the tireless determination that’s stood her in good stead throughout her rise through the music industry, she nagged everyone she knew in the hunt to find a producer and made her recording debut at the ripe old age of 13. Suitably inspired Brooker kept at it. She wrote song after song, going after musician after musician, and following up any sniffof an opportunity. By the age of 15, she was hanging out in a studio complex in Hackney, working with different producers, trying to develop a sound.
Brooker didn’t want to go down the talent show route. Not prepared to become anyone’s puppet, the idea of being a pretty face and a big voice fronting someone else’s songs and vision was anathema. So, determined to make her own sound and her own opportunities, she secured a concert booking agent, a US publicist, and a lawyer; making contacts wherever she could.
The year she turned 18 she managed to rack up 100 gigs, including those supporting The Saturdays on their UK tour, leading to a slot on the Hard Rock Café’s 2011 Pinktober US tour and making appearances in US media including CNN, CosmoGirl and Alloy to name a few.
Emboldened and excited, Brooker and her band have since been writing new songs which have become the cornerstone of her forthcoming debut album. The rich cocktail of English and Latin-American influences – Brooker is a fluent Spanish speaker – feeding both into the songs and her rich, expressive and soulful voice.
