We had the good fortune of connecting with Brook Brandyburg and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brook, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I’ve always wanted to be a singer/songwriter so giving up is not an option…I know I was made for this so I keep going. Having that feeling of knowing nothing or no one can stop me even if they tried gives me that push to wake up everyday and be better than I was yesterday! I’ve got places to be, people to see and hearts and souls to heal!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a singer/songwriter. I admire a ton of other artists, we’re all different in our own ways. What sets me apart is my ability to be versatile in anything that I do, even outside of singing and songwriting. I like to call myself a “jack of all trades”…I always question myself “Brook, what can’t you do?” It’s very important to learn a ton of different hobbies, keep your brain juices pumping and spread the knowledge to others. Super important! I am most excited about the new projects that I plan to drop this year/top of next year, it’s going to be life changing for sure. I’ve worked really hard to get where I am, it hasn’t been an easy ride but it’s definitely been worth it. I overcame the challenges by staying focused and keeping that tunnel vision…When you want something you work really hard for it…God will drop the blessings right into your lap! I’m excited for what’s to come. Being an indie artist is a blessing.

One lesson I’ve learned along the way is that success doesn’t happen over night (well sometimes it does) but who doesn’t like to put in the extra work? Feels good in the end. Keep going, you got this!

I want the world to know that I’ll be at the top soon, can’t wait to share talent and energy with everyone. It’ll be worth it and it will in fact be heartfelt and life changing. Y’all are gonna know who Brook Brandyburg is! See ya soon, world.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend was visiting the area…we’d definitely go somewhere upbeat! A week long trip, my week starts on a Sunday so we’d do Sunday Funday at “Tacos A Go Go”, then head to “Discovery Green” to enjoy the beautiful weather! Monday – Thursday we’d go get Lotus, Ra-Sushi, and/soul food at “This is It SoulFood”! YUM! Friday/Saturday we’d go to Buffalo Bayou then a night out on the town! After hours with some Suya! Once again, YUM!

Y’all should go check out all the names places above, I rate them 10/10! Enjoy!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to give a huge shoutout to my mother, the reason I’m here on earth. The woman who speaks life into me everyday and the first person to believe in me. Also, a shoutout to my sister, my ride or die…An influencer of strength I will continue to look up to you, always.
