Elkie Brooks began singing professionally in 1960, but it was her 1977 album ‘Two Days Away’ that saw the blue touch paper truly ignite on Elkie’s career. The album featured her monster hit and signature song Pearl’s A Singer, which was co-written and produced by Elvis stalwarts Leiber & Stoller. The song lit up the charts and gave her, her first timeless classic.
The hits kept coming: Fool If You Think It’s Over, Lilac Wine, Sunshine After The Rain, Warm And Tender Love, Don’t Cry Out Loud and her highest charting hit No More The Fool. Her 1981 album ‘Pearls’ was in the charts for 79 continuous weeks and went on to sell over a million, making Elkie Brooks the biggest selling female album artist in the history of the British pop charts at the time. Over the course of the next 25 years, Elkie has released some 20 albums and by 2012, she had more chart albums under her belt than any other British female artist.
Not only has Elkie Brooks been prolific in the studio she has also continued to tour, performing live in almost every major UK theatre with sell out runs at such prestigious venues as the Palladium, the Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena, Ronnie Scotts and she even shared the bill with the Beach Boys and Santana at Knebworth in 1980.
During this incredible evening Elkie Brooks will be performing her biggest hits. With emotional ballads, a powerhouse blues voice and her trademark impossibly long notes, this show will leave the audience mesmerised.
