You’re non-stop proactive, having had your hand in every aspect of your career from the very beginning. Where does this come from?
Brooke Ramel: I’m inspired by do-ers: Madonna, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Cher, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Shania Twain and Lauren Hill. These are women who do more than just sing. They run their own careers. They are ambitious, dedicated, powerful, hard working and basically are powerhouses. They are superhuman in a way, and that’s what I think it takes to really make it in this world as an artist and as a human being. That was the inspiration for my song ‘Superhuman World,’ off the Be CD. The demands of life in 2002.
The best thing an artist or band can do is find ways to get your music to every music supervisor, director, producer, etc. possible. And always keep working on your music. It is your product and you should continue to try and make it better and better and better. That’s what I do. Keep improving the quality of my product while outflowing as much as possible. And don’t be afraid to play your stuff for anyone! Go for it!
And, I can’t stress enough how the majority of my contacts in this business were made at my live shows. It was my live performance that gave me a chance to meet Steve Collins. While performing at the Crooked Bar in the basement of the Coconut Teaser on Sunset, I met my first manager, Karl Louis. We worked together for a little over a year and he helped me enormously.
