North Central PA Native Brooklyn James Releases "Lay Down My Heart (Song)" Video

I've had a lot of interesting experiences, but none as profound as being a mama. Conceiving, birthing, nurturing little lives has shown me I am so much more than I ever thought I was. But first I had to 'lay down my heart'—ego, control, fear—so I could actually hear its beat '(song).' Imagine my surprise when key words, for me, such as "Do" were superseded by "Be" and "Fight/Flight" by "Surrender." When ego gave in to gratitude, control to trust, and fear to joy, it made for a more harmonious beat by which to exist…and a pretty cool track that we 'laid down' in studio.

Lay Down My Heart (Song)—co-written and co-produced by myself and Eric McKinney at Wonderland Studios, Austin, Texas, video filmed and directed by Mike Danger in upstate NY/PA, an entirely independent DIY project—releases January 18, 2018.

Brooklyn James

Brooklyn James, (aka Bobbie Jo Duell), local Northern Potter graduate, is an author/singer/songwriter inspired by life in the Live Music Capital of Austin, Texas. Her first novel, The Boots My Mother Gave Me, has an original music soundtrack and was chosen as a Quarter Finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards. This book has ranked in Kindle's Top 100 Coming of Age and Women's Fiction.

When she is not writing books, she can be found playing live music around Austin as part of an acoustic duo. Brooklyn has been in a Weezer video, met Harry Connick Jr. as an extra on the set of When Angels Sing, appeared in Richard Linklater's Boyhood for all of a nanosecond, and she was Mira Sorvino's stand-in on Jerry Bruckheimer's Trooper pilot for TNT. She most enjoys being a wife and mother, reading, dancing, working out, and a good glass of kombucha.

Brooklyn holds an M.A. in Communication, and a B.S. in both Nursing and Animal Science. Her nursing career has seen specialties in the areas of Intensive Care and Postpartum. She serves as a Guest Speaker with a focus on awareness and prevention of Domestic Violence and Suicide.

"Brooklyn James' soundtrack to her novel The Boots My Mother Gave Me does more than give a clever feminist twist to the title. Her songs serve as chapters themselves, underlining James' deft ability as a storyteller and songwriter."-Margaret Moser, The Austin Chronicle
