The Sweeplings
The Sweeplings
The Sweeplings make music that belies the boundaries of the Folk/Americana genre. Sonically, they approach each song as if writing for the screen. A swirl of melodies and harmonies bring you along on their journey, and the sounds they craft give rise to a myriad of imagery, akin to watching a great film. Powerful narratives support their cinematic melodies as the duo strives to create music that is not simply heard, but felt.Unlikely in its beginnings, the duo is comprised of Washington native Cami Bradley and Alabama native Whitney Dean. The two work cross country & manage to create music despite the distance between them. Although they are a duo, their spouses help them write, travel, dream & create with the same goals in mind. It’s a four person team which helps create the musical chemistry that leaves you holding your breath, while being carried to a place of universal familiarity. The Sweeplings invite their listeners into a unique sonic experience that is both haunting and hopeful.

Singer-songwriter/guitarist Brooke Annibale sheds a bit of her indie-acoustic skin on her forthcoming record Hold to The Light—a pop-progressive album that offers a fusion of textured electronic and traditional (guitar, strings, keys) instrumentation with songs bearing Brooke’s keen, soulful lyricism.

Produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive), Hold to The Light marks several major departures for Brooke in terms of both songwriting and production. Brooke’s thoughtful, layered songwriting anchors the production to explore a range of narratives working through themes of seeking truths, letting go, and reconciling the past with the present. Both lyrically and musically, Hold opens up spaces for the listener to inhabit and make their own.

Hold to The Light is an exciting evolution in Brooke’s career as a musician. Her creative roots run deep with family connected to music—her grandfather founded a music store, which continues to operate today in her hometown, Pittsburgh. Hold to The Light is due out in 2018.
