Country singer-songwriter Brooke Moriber releases her brand-new single, “Half a Heart,” a song about the delight of living life to the maximum and loving with all you’ve got. “Half a Heart” follows on the heels of Moriber’s 2023 self-titled album, released via Reviver Records.
The lyrics of “Half a Heart” assert that too much love is never enough, and more love is better.
“I’d change most anything for you / Hair up hair down if you ask me to / I might take everything too far / But I’ll never love you / With half a heart / No less than eleven / No time for regretting / Over the top is just the start / I’ll never love you / With half a heart.”
Moriber’s musical path has been anything but conventional. A native New Yorker, she began performing on Broadway early on, landing the role of Cosette in Les Misérables.
Later as a teenager, a rare eye disease threatened to destroy her eyesight. Moriber shares, “I woke up one morning and couldn’t see my face in the mirror.” Moriber’s way of coping was writing songs. After four years, the disease went into remission and she began performing in local clubs, including The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and Mercury Lounge, followed by sharing the stage with the Gin Blossoms and singing the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden.
Serendipity led to Moriber arriving in Nashville to record her music. Her first track became an album, Cry Like A Girl, followed by performances at The Bluebird, the Listening Room, and The Local. Tracks from the album appeared on elite Spotify playlists as well as Sirius XM’s Velvet. Not long after, Moriber signed with Reviver Records in Nashville.
“Half A Heart” opens on a soft, gleaming guitar topped by Moriber’s delicious, alluring vocals, infusing the lyrics with intense passion. Under exquisite, lilting control, Moriber’s voice reveals a rich, beguiling instrument of expression. A mid-tempo rhythm enters, while washes of gentle, gorgeous strings add a sumptuous atmosphere.
Pulsing with gentle layers of color, “Half a Heart” zeroes in on the lustrous, evocative sweet spot found in the marvelous voice of Brooke Moriber.
