• Bittersweet’s 10 Year Anniversary!

    Posted in Blog by Brooke Trout

    Hard to believe it’s been ten years since the release of Brooke’s first album Bittersweet produced by Rhythm Core Alpha creator Timon Marmex (SoftEgg Studios, 2006). The album garnered Brooke nominations for All Access Magazine’s 2007 Music Award Show for best female guitarist in a rock, melodic blues category, best female guitarist in a pop, alternative category and best songwriter. As music critic Billy Sheppard of Rogue Radio, Idaho explained, “This level of music pain, in varying tempi, is a serrated cut of raw Souixshe, left in the sun near the mayonnaise for too damn long. If you want the plants to grow faster, play Mozart. Brooke sleeps with the fishes. She knows that the sleep of reason produces sea monsters. Sooner or later everything floats to the surface.” MM with Songsalive.org also wrote, “If Billie Joe Armstrong, David Byrne and Yngwie Malmsteen were morphed, Brooke would be the unique combination of vocal squeals and phased driving rhythms. Her acrobatic vocals, crunchy and thick-toned Ska-influenced guitar make a fish-skillet combo of the best Trout in town.”

    Listen to the single that started it all, Suburban Cocktail, as heard on KEOL 91.7 FM, La Grande…

    “Suburban Cocktail” highlight(s) how expert Brooke is at making various two- and three-chord progressions interesting and fresh…The net result on Bittersweet is a good catch of titillating tuneage. As an accomplished chanteuse who can write and play as well as sing, Brooke Trout is the real deal – well worth reeling in.”-Rob Swick, All Access Magazine.
