Waggoner’s critically acclaimed debut Heal For The Honey was independently released on Swoon Moon Music (her record label upstart) in September of 2008. 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.” “For me, if I’m not taking a risk instrumentally, structurally, or even lyrically, I’m not making a good song,” remarked Waggoner. “You never know what kind of impact you may have on others with your work, but if you can capture a moment in a small musical package, then job well done. It’s a gift you’ve been given to give back.”
