Cayla Brooke is a singer/songwriter from Vancouver, Canada. We’ve reviewed her music on the website before and she stood out to me so much that I decided to ask her to be a featured artist. She was kind enough to join us on our weekly show Indie Music Live (episode 172).
Cayla Brooke – Featured Artist
In the Deeper w/ Dave segment, Dave explores some references that helped form Cayla’s style. Dave compares her to Anne Wilson of Heart and Dianna Krall, and Cayla mentions that people also bring up Adele frequently. Basically, this girl can sing…and not just one genre! That’s HUGE for a vocalist that strives to be a professional. Cayla says she is comfortable with many genres yet her soulfulness always shines through.
One of Cayla’s biggest influences is a singer named Eva Cassidy, as she mentions in her personal bio. Eva died when she was 33 in 1998 and Cayla was mesmerized by her after being referred by her massage therapist. And as they say, the rest is history.
