For Brooke Eden, last year was a success both personally and professionally. The singer/songwriter not only came out in public, but he also got engaged to now-fiancé Hilary Hoover. He also released a sunny, uplifting trilogy of singles with “Sunroof,” “Got No Choice” and “No Shade”—along with videos that celebrated his romance with Hoover.
Eden says of the trilogy, “After two very dark years of not seeing some of my favorite people and navigating so much I wanted to hear.” “It was important to me to put on positive happy songs.”
Eden, who has previously released albums including 2016’s welcome to the weekend, released a trilogy of love songs independently of any album. In the spirit of his newfound freedom, the Eden five-song EP . But goes deeper into his story choose youon Friday (July 29) via BBR Music Group/BMG.
“It’s the first time I’ve stopped asking what other people want from me and started asking what I want for my life,” she says. “This project affects the darker areas of my life, the struggles, the joys and there is always hope in my songs.”
Eden, which is managed by Maximum Artists Group, reunited with writer and producer Jesse Fraser for the project, and co-produced every song from the project’s first release, including “Left You for Me,” clever “Knock” and Joyful. – did the writing. From the ground up.” In addition to new releases, they recently partnered with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the “Music Matters with the RIAA” project, which allows artists to speak up about how musical people are. enables them to use their authentic voices.
“Music has saved me in many ways,” says Eden. “When everything else took a backseat, I always had music. Plus, in this part of my life, music has been such a huge part of my journey of self-empowerment and self-love.” spoke with eden Board About the high creativity that came with making the EP.
“Left You For Me” begins with a gut-punch of a song: “You get so used to the habit that you forget that it is abnormal. ,
I think we’ve all found ourselves in different toxic situations and relationships, and it doesn’t start out toxic, but then years later you don’t recognize yourself. We wrote this song from the point of view of someone who feels that this is not what they want for their life anymore.
You wrote it with John Stone and Kyle Schlinger. How did you come up with the first line?
I think it was a very collaborative moment. We already had this chorus written that we were very proud of, and then the hook. We started writing the first poem and were thinking about how it feels to be in a situation that you almost feel like you can’t get out. I said something like, “You get used to it that it becomes a part of your everyday life,” and I think it was John Stone who ended the poem, and we were all immediately like, “Oh Yes. It fits perfectly.”
You are reunited with Jesse Fraser for this project. What was the origin for this EP?
We wrote “Left you for me” just before the pandemic. I didn’t know how much that song meant to me during the pandemic, because I just wasn’t out there and I was living a very secret, closed life. But during the pandemic, BS all the way to the side and all the things that were important rose up.
I didn’t write for about five months, but I was reading the book too indomitable by Glenon Doyle. I just kept thinking that writing would be so much easier if I could be myself in all these writing appointments, how much better I could be an artist and a singer if I could write from the heart. I was like, “I have to come out.” I talked to my management, I talked to my record label and they all supported me and they were like, “Let’s do this.” Neither of us knew what to expect: if I was accepted or thrown over the edge. But I felt that even if I was rejected – at least I am free. Coming out was a catalyst for me to be myself and write about my love and my heart.
While making this album, did you feel a greater sense of freedom than on your previous albums?
Oh sure. At the time I was putting out the trilogy, I was in a state of hope, that things would turn out well and I would be accepted. With this EP, I’m so confident about who I am because I know I’ve been accepted, and I want others to feel the freedom I feel now.
You wrote “Comeback Love” with Jessie and Sarah Buxton. What inspired it?
That song came to me in a dream one night. I woke up and I had this retro-feeling melody in my head. I was writing with Sarah and Jessie the next day, and they’re both so good at that retro feel. It’s just autobiographical, about falling in love. I always thought that relationships are hard, love is heavy. when I met [Hilary], it was just easy. He made my life better, eased my worries. My whole perspective changed, and I wanted to make a funny song that told that story.
Last year, you were part of a historic moment at the Grand Ole Opry when Trisha Yearwood, with whom your fiancée has worked, surprised you by singing “She’s in love with the boy,” but the song was changed to “She’s in.” Love with the Boy”. Girl.” How did that come about?
i gotta open a show for gartho [Brooks] This moment happened last year, in 2019, and again with Trisha. But the funny thing is, I never talked to Garth or Trisha about being a singer. Garth and Trisha are like our Nashville family, so when they called me to do this job, I was very surprised. Trisha called me in June last year and said, “I’ve seen people come on a show and say, ‘Hey, don’t tell anyone, but I sing,’ “She’s in love with the girl,” or “She’s in. In love with the boy.
She said that for 30 years, she’s wanted to do something to honor those who have said so and thought it would be a great way for me to do that and celebrate my engagement with Hill. Just for her to take this kind of stance for the LGBTQ+ community and just be such an ally… Being a country music icon like Stand for Love was the best moment ever.
You wrote “Off the Ground” during the 30A writers’ retreat in Florida.
It gives me “I want to dance with someone” vibes. I can’t dance on it. I remember Jesse singing it staccato in the chorus to me while we were recording it. It gives the punch in the chorus it really needs to elevate itself. The whole song is so rhythmic, and then at the end there is a breath of air that relaxes you. The song could have just stopped, but instead Jessie let it breathe and it sounded good.
How are the wedding plans going?
We are getting married in October in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We started vacationing there last year and were like, “We have to get everybody here.” A lot of them are coming for five or six days, so it will be fun to spend real quality time with our family and friends.
What about music for the wedding?
I just wrote my first dance song. I was going to keep it a secret, but then I was like, “No, I can’t keep it to myself.” I played a song for her and she cried.
Was it solo writing?
I wrote this with Forrest Finn and Nolan Sip. Nolan and his wife had been married for several years, and then Forrest got engaged. So I was writing this with two men who are just as in love as I am. I was like, ‘This is the perfect co-write to write a wedding song, because I know you love your girls the way I love yours.'”
