SINGER-SONGWRITER BROOKLYN DORAN RETURNS WITH THE RELEASE OF NEW SINGLE “I CAN’T BE ALONE WITH YOU”
Emerging from a three year journey of writing, recording and evolving, Toronto singer-songwriter Brooklyn Doran returns with the release of her tender new single “I Can’t Be Alone With You”, available for streaming everywhere today. Sharing its beauty, Doran will be taking the new release on the road with Gillian Nicola this month for a run of dates through Ontario and Quebec.
Brooklyn Doran’s unique sound weaves song and storytelling; the polarity between her music and personality creates a harmonious blend of wit and humour, contrasted by vulnerable lyricism and haunting melody. Audiences are immediately drawn to Doran’s engaging storytelling and emotional honesty.
“I Can’t Be Alone With You” sets Brooklyn’s crystalline vocals against soft percussion and gentle keys to create a dream-like soundscape, setting the tone of the beautifully melancholic track. Speaking to the yearning of a past lover, with whom you share an undeniable chemistry, Doran explains the track is about “that person who you know is wrong for you, that meeting up with them would be a mistake, who you’ve blocked on Instagram, but who you’d still find a way to go over to their place at 3am. But also about trying to not see that person anymore.“
No stranger to Canadian ears, Doran independently released her debut EP “There’s A Light On” in 2014, which went on to sell over 2000 copies and has received extensive radio play nationwide. Inspired to bring her music to audiences across the country, Doran began touring clubs and festivals in support of “There’s A Light On”. Her experiences on the road wove their way into many songs that would appear on her 2016 EP “These Paper Wings”, produced by Dan Hosh (City and Colour, Arkells, Said The Whale). The record has accumulated over 30,000 streams to date, with the video for the single “I Found A Home” reaching over 20,000 views.
