Thirteen-year-old country powerhouse singer/songwriter Brooklyn Summer just released her rockin' new anthem, “Blues On The Blacktop.” The kickin’ up-tempo song was co-written with Nashville tunesmiths Dave Lenahan, Scott Barrier, and Ericca Latza, and was produced by industry vet, record producer / composer / musician, John D. Willis/Mount Willis Productions. It has been creating a buzz among industry professionals and music fans alike since its release day premiere on Radio SoBro's NuMu Friday. It is nearing 120,000k streams and is now available on all digital and streaming platforms.
"Blues on the Blacktop" is a good ole fashioned feel-good, hand clappin,' toe' tappin' country sing- along song reminiscent of the popular 90s sound. It's about getting in the car, hitting the blacktop and leaving behind a relationship gone wrong, and not looking back.
Summer is a superstar in the making. The California native who was born in Morgan Hill (Silicon Valley) and moved to LA in third grade, proves that dynamite comes in small packages and people are taking notice. Although she may be tiny in stature, she is quickly becoming known for her BIG voice. The young country-rocker notes artists from Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert, and Pistol Annies, to Christina Aguilera and Adele as her biggest musical influences and she takes a little something that she has learned along the way from each of them adding to it her own distinctive style to create something unforgettable.
Summer has already graced the stages of some of Music City’s hottest rooftops and venues since her recent move from Los Angeles including Alley Taps, Fairlane Hotel, Kid Rock's Honky Tonk & Rock 'n' Roll Steakhouse, The Stage on Broadway, The Ainsworth Nashville, the world-famous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, Up! Rooftop Lounge, and Virgin Hotel Nashville. She was recently invited to play the iconic Bluebird Cafe where she made her debut on July 11th singing her new single. Summer has also been busy writing and recording with Nashville’s finest hit
songwriters and producers and is already working on new music.
It is evident that Summer is not afraid of hard work. She has been performing since the tender age of 5 and is mature way beyond her years. Not only is she a singer/songwriter, but an actress, voice-over artist, and a model. She has already appeared in numerous films and is recognized by both the Los Angeles and Nashville communities for her talent - volunteering her voice singing for hospice and performing at local county fairs and festivals. She was named Grand Champion winner of both the California State Talent Competition and the Greater
Bay Area Talent Competitions.
Summer resides in Music City where she is home-schooled and working diligently on her music career every day spending time co-writing, taking vocal and guitar lessons, practicing daily, and performing all over the southeast and California. Despite her busy schedule, Summer is still a typical teenager, enjoying the same things as her peers. When she is not on stage, she enjoys drawing, graphic design, dancing, horseback riding, playing Roblox, and loves animals.
When asked what is next for Summer, she notes "I would love to be signed by a record label who understands me and shares my vision and my passion." Music is everything to me! It is universal and so powerful. I want to use my talents, music, and platform to give back to my community and to help others," adds Summer…and that is exactly what she will do, make a difference…one song at a time.
