Hi Brooke, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’m great! Thanks for asking.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Cruel”?
I’ve always said a good song is one you feel, therefore I put what I was feeling into my song. Cruel talks about my bullying experience and some of what I experienced.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song? What draw you to write a song about bullying?
Yes, I personally experienced bullying. In my song and in the video you will hear me sing about how people told me to kill myself, which as I was walking thru the hallways of my school people would scream it out or send me videos. Due to my experience I was inspired to sing this to help others and raise awareness.
How was the film experience?
The film experience was extremely fun because I got to express so many different emotions thru my favorite thing, which is music.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording process was amazing! I love my engineer and mixer so we always have a fun time in the studio.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes new material is coming!! we are going to be dropping more covers as well as more singles!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Brooke Hummel EP Spring 2016.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, we are starting with the Stop Block Tell tour. we are looking on starting this April 🙂
