Brooke Alford Listening Room

THE ARTIST OF THE VIOLIN

When you think of the violin, you may immediately think of orchestras and symphonies, yet the violin
has been a very prominent instrument in the world of Jazz. Artists like Regina Carter, Noel Pointer,
Eddie South and the first lady of Jazz Violin Ginger Smock (among others) have shown just how
Jazzy you can get with a violin. Brooke Alford, The Artist of the Violin is one of today’s stand-out
contemporary jazz violinists. This Aberdeen, North Carolina native who calls Atlanta, GA home is
blazing the airwaves with her 2021 Smooth Jazz single release “SHINE” and her latest 2022 single
“New Day”. Both songs will be featured on her highly anticipated 5th CD.

Artist of the Violin is an artist who consistently strives for excellence all-round. Since the start of her
professional career in 2007, Brooke has independently released 1 LP and 2 EPs under her company

was produced and released under The Platinum Crown Music Independent label. Brooke’s official
national radio debut occurred in 2018 with her Smooth Jazz single, “Closer” featuring award-winning
International Recording Artist Bob Baldwin. Brooke’s body of work encompasses a fresh and
creative blend of Smooth Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Western European Classical, and more.
Opening for some of the best musical artists and entertainers in the industry has catapulted
Brooke’s career to outstanding heights thus far. These notable artists and entertainers include The

for Brooke. She is a Florida State University College of Music alumna who holds a B.M. in Violin
Performance. Brooke has been working with young string players in various string programs around
the country and one-on-one since 2002. As a Wellness Coach, Brooke has been educating

since February 2021. Having experienced the transition of her Beloved Father Dr. Vernon R. Alford
Jr. from gastrointestinal cancer in 2020, Brooke was inspired to launch New Horizons to present
solutions and awareness for many of today’s societal health concerns.
Brooke launched her newly renovated Violin and Viola Studies Program in 2020 as a response to
the to school string music programs completely stopping. The shutdowns occurred, but this did not
take away students’ eagerness to continue learning and playing their instruments. To bridge this
gap, The Brooke Alford Violin and Viola Studies Program was born to access students not only in
the metro-Atlanta area, but nationally and internationally as well.
Outside of her professional ventures, Brooke is an advocate of harmonized wholistic living, yoga,
Earth food, planet care, and physical fitness (strength training and HIIT). She loves to read, learn,
