Brooke Lynn McGowan
Musical Theater Folk Singer Songwriter. Original music with hints of Folk, Musical Theater, Celtic music and Jazz.
Brooke Lynn McGowan is a singer-songwriter based in NYC. She draws inspiration from her background in Musical Theater, and artists such as Sandy Denny, Joni Mitchell, Carole King and PJ Harvey. She began performing at the age of 8 at Centenary College in a company called the Young Performers Workshop (YPW). She performed in the tri-state region as a teenager, notably with the CityKids Repertory Company and in cabarets at Don't Tell Mama's.
After receiving a BA in Theater Studies & Musical Theater at Montclair State University, Brooke began singing with the rock band “Loud Day” in 2009. Realizing that she wanted to find her own voice and sing her own songs, she began writing and performing at open mics in the East Village. After a time of performing professionally, recording a CD of standards called "Maybe This Time" and teaching music in the San Francisco Bay Area, she has returned to NYC.
Brooke is in progress writing a musical and recording an album of her songs, as well as performing at various local venues such as the Christopher Street Coffeehouse in the West Village.
