• Top 10, Hot 100 and More!

    Posted in Blog by Brooke Trout

    Brooke Trout just broke the top 10 on Reverbnation! Special thanks to the 440 fans on the site for listening to the current track listing “Networth.” This song was the title track for Brooke’s second album that was named “Most Original in Alternative Rock” by Garageband.com. Listen to more of the album here: Networth

    Also a special thanks to DJ Daniel Harris in The Netherlands for spinning Brill’s first single “O Song” on the 453 show of The Soupy Gato Show which you can still catch here: The Soupy Gato Show

    Brooke’s latest concert reviews are now live in this month’s edition of Music Connection. Check out her reviews of Alfa on page 62 and Glitter Rose on page 63 online here: http://musicconnection.com/magazine/current-digital.

    The Glitter Rose review is especially exciting because the photograph featured with the review was taken by legendary rock photographer Greg Papazian who has photographed everyone from Marc Bolan to Led Zeppelin for venues including The Roxy and The Whiskey. Greg photographed occasionally for the legendary Midnight Special television show and his work has appeared in several publications including Rolling Stone. You can check out his stunning black and white photography gallery and get updates on local shows to view his work in person here: http://www.papazianphotography.com/
