Produced primarily by Christian “Leggy” Langdon (Joseph, Amos Lee), Better By Now features 10 blossoming indie-pop tracks that Brooke describes as a “spectrum of emotions.” In her trademark layered approach, the Pittsburgh-born, Rhode Island-based artist reflects on love, self-acceptance, anxiety, depression, and how two seemingly opposing forces can exist at once. “The album is basically half about falling in love and half about mental health.”

She has been a favorite among music supervisors and featured in such media as StereogumWall Street JournalBillboard, NPR/World Café, Consequence, PasteUnder The RadarAmerican Songwriter and more.
