Smooth Operator: Brooke Aulani

Brooke Aulani is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, CA, lauded for her captivating, atmospheric brand of music that seamlessly commingles dark pop with R&B, featuring her signature sultry, soulful vocals and unnervingly honest lyrics set to slinky, impeccably complex sonic textures; she is also celebrated for her commanding stage presence (Grammy-nominated artist Daniel Bedingfield once said of her: “Brooke has the power to take a room of people and make them focus on her, and draw them into where she wants to be”); her debut EP Bedroom Music was released in 2016, and spawned the fan favorite “Shame” and the delightfully addictive “Like I Do;” Brooke has dropped three new singles since, including the deliciously repeat-listen “Out Loud” from 2018; visit her Spotify page to listen to her songs, or her YouTube channel to watch her videos (bonus: there’s a genius cover of Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor” in there); follow @brookeaulani on Instagram for updates on upcoming releases and shows
