The stage isn't just a platform; it's where I feel most at home. Every note and word connects me with my audience. Sharing my music and stories, I feel truly alive and connected.”


Cayla Brooke: From Silence to Song

Cayla Brooke’s connection to music began at age three, but her journey was interrupted by childhood trauma and personal struggles, including a painful divorce that kept her silent for a decade.

A tribute to Eva Cassidy reignited her passion, leading to sold-out performances and her debut album, "Plush Red Chair," which was highly praised by No Depression Magazine and Jazz Corner. No Depression Magazine called her the "Real Deal," and Jazz Corner described her as a "Distinctive and one of a kind performer."

Now living in Alberta, Cayla is creating her second album, "Simplicity," which focuses on minimalistic music arrangements. An award-winning songwriter, Cayla’s music bridges human experiences and emotions, proving the strength of resilience and the power of music to transform lives.


Wow! I’d be at the dictionary for hours to find enough superlatives to praise Cayla Brooke ... Hands down, this was the best show I’ve ever seen at the Festival. I can’t be more superlative than that. ***** (5 stars)”
