American Singer/Songwriter Brookln Dekker, better known by his surname-moniker, Dekker, has been making waves over the last two years.
His one-song-at-a-time premier album Slow Reveal: Chapter One began in August of 2019 slowly revealing itself on the way to the release of it’s completion in November of 2020.
Five months after Slow Reveal: Chapter One’s release, Dekker put out Small Wins, the first single from his next-album-to-be. Bowed but unbeaten by the depression and hysteria these times have inspired in many, Dekker has worked prolifically on his sophomore album, I Won’t Be Your Foe (to be released in 2022). Buoyed by the experience of Slow Reveal, Dekker knew what he wanted from the start and through collaboration with Berlin drummer, Stefan Wittich, as well as with mixing/mastering engineer Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, The Staves, Whitney) Dekker was able to hone a cohesive and clear indie-folk album.
Dekker grew up in the midwest of America and after 5 years of marriage to his English wife, and the other half of the pair’s indie-folk band, Rue Royale, the couple picked up and moved to the U.K. seeing them tour the European continent extensively from 2008 through 2014. In 2017, after a family-expanding pause from the road, Brookln found himself making the record We Share Phenomena with old friend Lambert. This whetted his appetite for writing and performing again which led to In Parallel (2018) for Rue Royale before branching out to begin his journey of Dekker in 2019…
