Brooke Ansley is a Country musician from Taylorsville, Maryland, and is now located in Los Angeles, California. Ansley is no stranger to the spotlight, previously being named Miss Maryland and having competed in the Miss America pageant. She says that she, “brings the attitude of a new-age feminist.” Her newest song “Whiskey Wednesday” sounds like a cross between Marren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini with Meghan Trainor, with a strong yet quirky feel.
First off, it is hard to resist a fun song with a hook as Ansley sings, “it’s whiskey Wednesday on a Mondaynight.” Ansley’s use of both doo-wop and Country elements fuse together to show off her fiery side. “Whiskey Wednesday” has some fun production elements like a voice asking “what night is it?” and whistles in the second verse. A highlight of the song is Ansley’s lyrics, “I blocked you from my phone again and tossed your favorite shirt” and “cut your face right out the feed of my Facebook wall.” Her voice is a mesmerizing blend of both sweet and strong. Ansley ignores genre barriers and tells a relatable story, making for a perfect love (or breakup) song for the modern age.
