After graduating with a bachelor's degree in music composition and orchestration, hoping to one day score films and orchestrate her own projects, Brooke decided to pick up, pack up, and head to Nashville, TN. Her songs tell of a "lone 23-year-old girl, sagas of daily life, [and] bits of poetry" that are "all melded with honest proclamations and confessions." Waggoner tries to create movies during her live shows by changing moods and tempos to create the visuals by taking people on journeys and creating pictures. She pulls music from many artists to create her sound, such as Simon and Garfunkel, Electric Light Orchestra, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Chopin. Doo-wop, droopy melodies, and Asian fingerprint, and sighs & swoons also find their way into her songs.
