Brooke Eden

Brooke Eden by Ford Fairchild

When she began her country music career, Brooke Eden wasn’t encouraged to speak openly about her sexuality. But things have changed in the five years since the release of her debut EP, “Welcome to the Weekend.” She has a new sound, and thanks to her fiancé, a new outlook on life. “Before I met my fiancé, I had never written a love song,” Brooke Eden tells GO. “A lot of my songs were very cynical and dark and angsty. When I met Hilary, everything changed. Even though we were terrified of the outside world, when it was just the two of us in our bubble, nothing was easier. Nothing was lighter or happier. My whole perspective on life changed when I met her.” Eden just released three new songs — “No Shade,” “Sunroof,” and “Got No Choice” — which reflect a happier, up-tempo, and lighter sound. “I felt like if this is going to be my music and these are going to be my songs, then I need to live this life out loud, and I need to live this love out loud,” she says. Her new songs, sound, and love make the year a promising one for her. “What’s cool about my story is that I’ve already gotten to do this one time,” Eden says, reflecting back on the first part of her career while looking forward to the next. “I think it’s cool that I get to do this again with music that I love so much and music that says something that I want to say.” —RK
