Daniela Brooker is a young girl with a massive voice, a teenage veteran. Born to a Tupac Shakur loving English dad and a Venezuelan mum, the 20-year old Londoner has been making music for over a third of her young life. While growing up, school and Brooker’s social life suffered, and ultimately her parents suffered – all she wanted to do was sing, write, and perform music. Everything else went out the window.
Aged just 12, she wrote her first song. However, Brooker didn’t just follow the time-honoured tradition and sketch down some poetry in an adolescent diary then warble a tune into a mobile phone. Displaying the dogged determination that’s stood her in good stead throughout her rise through the music industry, she nagged everyone she knew in the hunt to find a producer.
Having made her recording debut at the ripe old age of 13, a suitably inspired Brooker kept at it. The year she turned 18 she managed to wrack up 100 gigs, including those supporting The Saturdays on their UK tour and a slot on the Hard Rock Café’s Pinktober US tour.
Emboldened and excited, Brooker and her band have since been writing and recording new songs, which have become the cornerstone of her forthcoming debut album P.S. The rich cocktail of English and Latin-American influences – Brooker is a fluent Spanish speaker – feeding both into the songs and her rich, expressive and soulful voice.
