Picks and Pans Review: Holly Brook
She is signed to Linkin Park's label, Machine Shop Recordings, and she is a featured vocalist on "Where'd You Go," the Top 5 hit by Linkin Park offshoot Fort Minor. But there won't be any moshing to Holly Brook's music. On her delicately crafted debut, the 19-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Mazomanie, Wis., comes off more like Generation Y's answer to Sarah McLachlan. With Brook's ethereal vocals floating atop airy arrangements driven by piano and acoustic guitar, songs like the quietly introspective "Curious," the laid-back "Saturdays" and the sweetly yearning "What I Wouldn't Give" are tailor-made for a revival of Lilith Fair.
