Xtra Fresh – Donna Brooks

Growing up in Florence, Alabama – Donna Brooks was probably not even aware that the epitomy of musical cool was just across the river in Muscle Shoals. However it was hard to ignore the sounds of Country, RnB, Blues , Rock and Folk swirling in the air and this led to her learning to play guitar and almost immediately writing songs. Donna has spent years honing her songwriting craft and developing her own distincitve styles whether it be reflective or rocking or funny.

She has now released her debut EP, “Parking Lot Penny,” which offers tracks that demonstrate this writer’s lyrical depth, humor, and ability to play in different lanes. It captures the magic and story-telling from Donna’s live performances without overwhelming the songs and we have chosen the track “You Draw Me In” as this weeks Xtra Fresh. Should we play it on Radio X? You decide . . . . .
