Brooke will be performing on the Maggie’s Stage on Friday 21st July – approximate stage time 4pm. Buy tickets here.

Born and raised in South Shields, 21 year old singer-songwriter Brooke Bentham is one of the youngest performers at this year’s Curious Arts Festival. Her forthcoming debut EP, which has been produced by Ben Baptie (Lianne La Havas, Daughter, Låpsley, Adele) possesses the epic alt rock journeying of War On Drugs or Ryan Adams with the added emotional vocal depths of Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. That all this is the fruits of someone so young might take you by surprise. It carries the weight of someone who’s lived a hundred lives already.
