Brooke Annibale

Pittsburgh Singer-Songwriter Brooke Annibale Is Our World Cafe: Next Pick This Week

We meet Brooke Annibale as our World Cafe: Next artist this week. She is originally from Pittsburgh and lives back there now after spending some time in Nashville where she recorded this new album The Simple Fear. It's actually her fourth full-length so far - she made her first at 17. Songs from her past discs have been heard on TV on One Tree Hill, Vampire Diaries and elsewhere. It is easy to see with the sometimes dark lyrics in contrast with what can be described as a “pretty” voice. We will play you a couple of songs. You can also download our weekly World Cafe: Next podcast.
