UK Singer-Songwriter Katey Brooks Strives For Love In "All Of Me"
Katey Brooks doesn’t have the typical story to tell — hers is about being queer and growing up in a cult, but it’s not her story we want to share. For that, you can listen to her newest album, Revolute. Today, we want to shine a single spotlight on her track “All Of Me” off that record, a stripped-back stunner that narrates pure love at its simplest and most complicated.
Hear what Katey had to tell us about “All Of Me” below:
Where the majority of Revolute busts through waves of twangy alt-folk arrangements and eerie, creeping compositions, “All Of Me” is the ultimate ballad. It’s also Katey’s strongest vocal performance — she’s all-in here, clawing her way to powerhouse peaks but coming back down to steady croons when she has to. “All Of Me” is an old-school track fueled by soul-deep emotion, Katey’s aching vulnerability the one thread that remains pulled taut for the length of a divine composition built on ethereal harmonies, retro percussive swings, and warbling guitar riffs steeped in sorrow.
“All Of Me” is a miraculous representation of love across its vast spectrum — that warm swath of comfort that befalls in its early days all the way to the shadow that sets in during times of doubt. Katey Brooks covers it all in just one song, a feat accomplished solely by the sheer power of her voice.
