Teri Bracken — the singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and visionary force behind Brontë Fall's mix of indie-pop and rootsy Americana — was preparing to release 2020's Finishing School when the world shifted. A tornado ripped through her adopted hometown of East Nashville, sending two trees crashing onto her roof. A pandemic brought her world to a standstill. A messy breakup left her heartbroken, and her father's ongoing battle with cancer found her making regular trips to a hospital in Ohio.

Throughout it all, Bracken continued to create music. This was something more than songwriting — it was therapy. A battle cry from a front-woman who had always found empowerment in her own music. A reminder that difficult seasons are only temporary, with weary winters soon giving way to brighter summers.

"Winter," Brontë Fall's follow-up to 2020's "Finishing School", was created during those months of dark struggles and silver linings. It's a seven-song EP that doubles down on Bracken's pop roots, trading the Americana influences of her previous recordings for a mix of synthesizers, punchy percussion, and other electronic elements. The record also strongly nods to Emily Brontë's "Fall, Leaves, Fall," a poem about finding the warmth in nature's cold spells.
Bronte Fall
Brontë Fall is a musical potion of Pop, Rock and Americana music founded by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Teri Bracken. Over the past several years, Bracken has spent time following her passion in various American cities including Boston, New York, Nashville and then back to her hometown of Chicago. Already an orchestral violin player, keyboardist, and vocalist, Bracken craved the rawness of Americana roots music. When she fell in love with the craft of songwriting, all of the pieces fell into place. On her journey, she set in writing songs that were unedited, honest, modern, and, at times, impolite. Outspokenly feminine and reminiscent of the Brontë sisters, who dared to have a voice in a time when women did not, Bracken’s voice has come to boldly define Brontë Fall.

Brontë Fall’s debut album, Silhouette Dances, allows all of the influences of Bracken’s personal journey to seep through as she continues to pursue this adventure of music and life. Her second album is due out Spring 2020!
