Brooke Waggoner returns on November 3rd with her second full-length album titled Go Easy Little Doves. All twelve songs on the album were not only written and composed by Waggoner, as with her previous releases, but Go Easy Little Doves was entirely self-produced.

With Go Easy Little Doves, Waggoner expands and surrounds her sound with lush orchestration, moving melodies and introspective lyrics.  Waggoner’s new album begins with two instrumental songs “Query” and “Ruminate” which beautifully fade into the title track “Go Easy Little Doves, I’ll Be Fine.”  The album plays more like a symphony rather than a standard pop release. Songs such as “Chromates Soft Love” and “Find Her Floods” reveal dynamics that could be suitably described as cinematic.

Waggoner describes the process of writing the material for the album and inspiration by commenting, “This is a collection of music I’ve wanted to record correctly for a very long time. Some of the songs were written over ten years ago. And some were written the night before I was scheduled to record. The project is full of Q&A, pensiveness, elasticity, and romance. It truly follows my story from beginning to its current state. This is the one I’ve always dreamt of making.”

Go Easy Little Doves is the follow up to Waggoner’s critically acclaimed debut Heal For The Honey.

Independently released on Swoon Moon Music in September of 2008, Brooke Waggoner’s Heal For The Honey received mass critical acclaim and coverage, including the New York Times’ description of it as “… an eclectic, 10-track album that favors a serene voice quietly singing about the tribulations of love against a backdrop of classical piano crescendos.”  Paste Magazine wrote, “In a music world overpopulated with acoustic guitars, warbling voices and tinkling piano keys, Brooke Waggoner and her cache of mesmerizing tunes stand out.”

Brooke Waggoner has a full run of tour dates starting in Chapel Hill, NC on September 1st with Denison Witmer.  Following the conclusion of that tour, Waggoner will join Owl City on the road beginning October 8th in Des Moines, Iowa.
