Brooke Van Poppelen on her first album:
"It's about time I finally put together an album and thankfully was able to record it with Sure Thing in Austin, TX, my comedy home away from home. My energy was through the roof that night and I had a blast just basking in the experience of a crowd coming out to support a live recording."
