Brooke Annibale (born July 1987) is an American singer/songwriter and musician from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Music career[edit]

Brooke Annibale began songwriting at age 15 and soon was performing in the Pittsburgh vicinity.[1] At the age of 17, Annibale released her first full-length album, Memories in Melody,[2] as her senior project at Moon Area High School.[3] After graduating in 2005, Annibale went to Belmont University, where she graduated in 2009 with a degree in Music Business.[2]

In 2010, Annibale raised crowd funds with a Kickstarter campaign enabling her to work with producer Paul Moak at The Smoakstack in Nashville.[4][5] Their sessions resulted in her third full-length album, Silence Worth Breaking,[6] which was self-published and released by Annibale on March 15, 2011.[2][7] The album garnered positive reviews from Annibale's Pittsburgh base, while Brian Palmer of Glide Magazine called it "phenomenal", writing, "Filled with gravitas, passion, joy, sorrow, humility and boldness, the ten tracks that make up Silence Worth Breaking are done in a stunning, hypnotic fashion, encompassing the genres of folk, rock, Americana and pop in masterful ways."[5]

Words in Your Eyes, was released February 5, 2013,[8] and featured at an official launch performance at Club Cafe in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on March 9, 2013.[9]

A new album entitled "The Simple Fear" released on October 2, 2015.[10]
