Brooke has also won the “Made in Washington’s Best Emerging Artist Award” the “West Coast Songwriters Award” (for the song “I Wont Be Alone”) and was a Billboard Music Songwriters Finalist and Lilith Fair/Levi’s Top 10 Emerging Artist finalist. Her songs have received airplay on local and regional radio, including KZOK, KMPS, KEXP and KMTT.
Several songs from the Brooke Pennock Bands extensive catalogue were also used on the soundtrack of the independent film “Poppies: Odyssey of an Opium Eater.” (www.poppiesthemovie.com) The movie has won numerous awards and been featured at many International Film Festivals.
