Brooke Taylor & The Poison Spitting Gin Queens

Brooke Taylor is a Melbourne-based singer, songwriter and guitarist. Her music style encompasses folk, blues and country elements. Wowing crowds with her magnetic energy at gigs and music festivals across the country, including St Kilda Music Festival, Bruthen Blues Festival, Leaps and Bounds and The Taste Of Tassie.

Taylor is going from strength to strength, as a finalist for the Lyrebird Gift in 2019 as well as nabbing support slots for highly regarded acts such as the Pierce Brothers (AUS), Luka Bloom (IRE), Joe Pug (US), Renee Geyer (AUS), Tex Perkins (AUS) and Tim Rogers (AUS). She has also recently become the newest member of Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission in 2021 (vocals/guitar).

Brooke writes about the human condition, drawing listeners in with her strong storytelling and raw emotion. Her songs are built with strong rhythm guitar, memorable melodies, honey-toned vocals and soulful lyrics. Brooke Taylor is an exciting artist to watch out for, with her Debut Album ‘It’s The Little Things’ launching at #2 on the Australian Independent Album Charts July 2020.

Brooke is set release her follow up album in early 2024 ‘There’s Magic in Mistakes’ followed by a national tour across all states.

On stage Brooke entertains with her voice, both through song and in between with her hilarious endearing sense of humour. Her live band ‘The Poison Spitting Gin Queens’ are seasoned top level Australian artists who all have their own projects, but choose to loyally follow this strong woman across our great southern land.

You won’t be able to help but think….how can someone so small take up so much space?
