Brooke Fraser Quotes

Three years ago, i was eighteen years old and the acting editor/music editor of the magazine that finds itself in your hot little hands right now.
Little did I know, that less than a year later, I would be the one fielding questions from the press as the songs I’d written in my bedroom hit #1 in mainstream radio; one after another. Since then, my life has moved at quite a speed.
