A pinch of sweet and a dash of spice flavours the jazz-rock, blue-jean and heels, throwback performer Cayla Brooke’s musical Le Creuset. Garnering comparisons ranging from modern vocalists Adele, early Holly Cole and the late Eva Cassidy to classic belters Janis Joplin and Barbra Streisand. The Vancouver performer mixes intensity with a sensitivity wrapped in effective contradictions with essences of benchmark bands like Steely Dan and Chicago. A musical gumbo, Brooke embraces and explores her wide spectrum of interests and life experiences in her music and writing. Cayla Brooke in the simplest summary? Accessible. Sophisticated. Soulful. Self-proclaimed Foodie.
