18 Oct We Are Proud to announce BROOKE EDEN joining our event.
West Palm Beach December 16th and Fort Myers December 17th
Morgan Renee Live is proud to present Brooke Eden as part of this outstanding line up for our Florida shows. This Nashville recording artist and South Florida native will be sure to make the show opening a hit and have it start off with the right energy.
Brooke Eden, the young Loxahatchee, Florida native came up the artist ranks by paying her dues, performing in clubs and learning the craft of songwriting from the tender age of four. Lauded for her commanding stage presence and brassy straight-shooting style, Eden has performed over 500 shows in four years, including opening for superstars such as Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Sugarland and Florida Georgia Line.
In her brazen new single “Daddy’s Money,” Brooke Eden concisely lays out her doctrine: work hard, use what you have and never ever rely on someone else for your success. While the young singer has always had the support of her father and mother, she didn’t benefit from the parental pocketbook. In fact, as the daughter of a carpenter who moonlighted as a drummer in a country band, Brooke adopted the scrappy underdog mentality and stamped it all over her soulful and bluesy brand of country music..
“My parents never had a lot of money, but they made sure I had their support behind me: ‘We can’t buy your way in, but you can do it — you just have to work a little bit harder,'” says Brooke, recalling her folks’ insight.
Clearly, the Florida native — who grew up midway between the sands of West Palm Beach and the swamps of the Okeechobee — was paying attention. “You don’t have to come from a super affluent family to become what you want to be,” she says. In songs like “Daddy’s Money” and the clever girl-power anthem “Sunday Morning,” as well as live onstage, Brooke is a confident and commanding vocalist, poised to follow in the footsteps of her chief country inspiration and BBR Music Group labelmate, Jason Aldean.
“I like strong voices,” says Brooke, who cites vocal influences ranging from Shania Twain to Etta James. “Women didn’t always get to sing about receiving respect, but those women commanded it. And with Jason, I just love how he mixes rock into country. As a musician, you’re constantly studying other artists and making things your own.”.
Brooke — who announced her arrival with the Sirius/XM The Highway staple “American Dreamin'” — has been keenly listening to other singers and musicians since she was just six years old, soaking in every note as she watched her dad’s band play throughout southeast Florida. An accomplished performer at 13, she opened for big names like Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn all the while working her way through school to earn a degree in marketing from the University of Florida. A stint as a bartender followed, until her boss heard her sing, and promptly fired her — “You’ll thank me later,” he said.
