Watch singer-songwriter Brooke DiCaro perform “Coffee” with Trap Rabbit at Rittenhouse Soundworks
South Jersey native Brooke DiCaro is making strides combining typical elements of the singer-songwriter scene and adding an unconventional, jazzy twist. Brooke got her start covering artists like Adele, Carly Simon, and Amy Winehouse but soon moved onto writing original music. On May 28th, she released a soulful new single called “Coffee,” accompanied by a video of her studio session in Rittenhouse Soundworks. “Coffee” is DiCaro’s latest original release since “Blame,” released in 2016.
On the track, Brooke DiCaro’s vocals are accompanied by Trap Rabbit’s Arjun Dube on drums and Logan Roth on piano, as well as Noah Skaroff on bass. DiCaro’s warm and welcoming voice fills the room from behind a Baby Grand — as we see and hear, she is a skilled pianist (and ukuleleist too, though that doesn’t come into play in this performance). The recording was engineered by Michael Cumming, and filmed by Bob Sweeney.
Brooke DiCaro has an assortment of residency gigs on her schedule in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New York. The performances in closest proximity to Philadelphia will take place at Seasons 52 and Sullivan’s Steakhouse in the coming months; details on both can be found at her website.
