Highly recommend her!
Response from Brooke Mackintosh:
This was such a special event, I wanted it to be just perfect, and I am so grateful to have been not only a witness to the moment, but the special ingredient that gave it that extra romantic touch.

Madame Mackintosh is the Host and Provider of Entertainment for The Spice Of Life Variety Show every Sunday at Salt Lake's hottest live downtown music venue, Lake Effect, and on Wednesday's at Midvale's, Union Tavern. She's also a mother, muse, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, artist and natural born singer, born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her mother claims she's been singing since the day she arrived and her father taught her to play the piano as soon as she could reach the keys, and guitar at the age of 15.
Age 25, without a plan, she packed all she could into her car, including two guitars, her dog and her cat and followed the I-15 to begin her lifelong dream in San Diego, CA.
After a year of submerging herself deep in the San Diego Songwriter's scene, she released her debut album, "Blue Skies Await," under her stage name, Brooklyn with Producer, Sven-Erik Seaholm. It wasn't long before she became an established singer-songwriter, and a live, local music promoter & show producer.
For years, she maintained weekly residencies at many locations, including the Gaslamp District and Pacific Beach. Her show, "Brooklyn & Friends," was supported by local celebrities, promoted by local TV shows and news stations, and her song, "Believe" was placed in a local MyTV13 show, which aired every week.
In 2008, "Blue Skies Await" producer, Sven-Erik Seaholm invited Brooke to join his his band, The Wild Truth, and eventually the two separated from the band to become the duo, Seaholm Mackintosh.
With the Recession, Brooke took a 5 month hiatus from San Diego. She moved to Morgan, Utah, where she began planting seeds in the Utah music scene. Meanwhile, Sven and she continued a romantic relationship despite the distance, and in 2010, she moved back to San Diego, into his home studio, aptly named, "Kitsch & Sync Production," in Allied Gardens.
A surprise pregnancy provided the push needed to co-create their duet album, "Monarchs," which gained a San Diego Music Awards Nomination, the very same year their son, Miles was born, (in 2011.)
They continued to perform and worked as a team on multiple projects in his home studio, including a musical theater project, "Time & Away" featuring recreated versions of songs off their album. They also collaborated with artist and friend, Nisha Catron, for a dance-lounge album, called "STLA" (released in 2013).
A year before STLA's actual release, the duo seperated and Brooke returned to her roots, toddler in tow, heading the call of family and the majestic Rocky mountains.
Brooke was quick to reap from seeds she'd sown a few years earlier and was welcomed to Utah successfully. She established herself with multiple residencies in Ogden, Layton, Salt Lake City and Park City and created a show which she shares with Special Guests Artists, called "Madame Mackintosh's Spice Of Life Show."
She is currently writing, working to produce her long-awaited Sophomore album and plans on touring and showing her son the world.
Since Brooke began her musical journey, she has shared the bill and the stage with renowned artists, such as Eagles Hit songwriter, Jack Tempchin, "You Were Meant For Me" Co-Songwriter, and touring artist, Steve Poltz, Nashville artist and songwriter, Erin McCarley, Grammy Award Winning Songwriter, Monty Powell, Lumineers Guitarist, Maxwell Hughes, Jason Mraz Produced, Gregory Page, Musician & Hollywood Actor, Brad Carter, Django Soundtrack Artist, Brother Dredge and
Teen Folk Sensation, Sammy Brue.
She's performed the National Anthem for many motor races such as the first Utah NASCAR race, (Nationally televised with over 10,000 in attendance,) and Motorcross Races around the state. She has since performed original work for hundreds of venues, festivals and events in the Western U.S, including the The Belly Up, Humphreys By The Bay, Prestigious Ski Resorts, San Diego Fair, La Jolla Art & Wine Festival, OFOAM Ogden Music Festival and The Sundance Film Festival, etc.
Not easily pigeon-holed, Brooke's music is Soul undertoned by more popular genres. She calls it "Indie Acoustic Mountain Soul."
Albums available on iTunes and CDBaby include:
Brooklyn "Blue Skies Await" 2007
Seaholm Mackintosh, "Monarchs" 2011
STLA (self titled) 2013
