Glide Magazine had this to say about the album: “The debut LP from Atlanta-based father-daughter folk duo The Brookses, Lucky Charm, is the culmination of a decades-in-the-making partnership, harnessing and presenting energy that could only be borne from family bonds. This album’s blend of timeless folk themes and rich, lively production lends itself to a masterful recording …a rich bygone take on the stunning sound of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, that lifts with silvery harmonies and a rustic cinematic scope.”

About The Brookses
Singer/songwriters Meg Brooks and Jim Brooks are a daughter/father duo whose love of traditional folk, country and blues shines through in their interpretation of classic songs as well as well-crafted originals that sound just as timeless. Their tight harmonies and ringing guitar lines evoke the sound of Johnny and June, Gram and Emmy Lou, and Delaney and Bonnie. Based in Atlanta, they play both as a duo and with a full band.
Inspired by artists such as The Band, Whiskeytown, The Allman Brothers Band, CSN, and Kevn Kinney to name a few, Collins Drive has earned themselves a steadily growing fanbase due to their live performances at such renowned Atlanta venues as Red Light Café, Moonshadow Tavern, and Smith’s Olde Bar. Collins Drive has also shared stages with such legendary performers as Mike Glabicki of Rusted Root and Kevn Kinney of Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ who personally invited them to be a part of the Kevn Kinney Rocket Shop Talent Show at City Winery in Atlanta.
Collins Drive is a band that just wants to bring their favorite kinds of music into one place and create a sound and songs that everyone can connect with at some level. Collins Drive’s songs tell stories and paint pictures of Southern living whether it is from the eyes of a washed up bluesman that never got his time to a woman waiting in the rain for her bus home. There’s nothing complex and there are no deep, hidden meanings to these songs. They are just little slices of life put into songs that are easy to grasp on to and easy to connect with. Just give them a listen and maybe you’ll find yourself in some of these scenes and stories.
