Drawn to music from a young age, Brooke Ligertwood was born in Wellington, New Zealand where she spent her childhood before signing as a teenager to Sony Music under artist name Brooke Fraser.
As Brooke Fraser (her maiden name) her first album exceeded 8 x platinum sales in her home country and produced five #1 airplay singles. Her career has now spanned 14 years, numerous albums and international tours.
In 2004 her career took her to Sydney, Australia, and it was here that she discovered her other great passion - the local church.
For many years, alongside her mainstream career, Brooke and her husband Scott have served as songwriters, worship leaders and key creative team at Hillsong Church before moving to Los Angeles where they are now a core part of the Hillsong LA team.
Brooke’s love for the Word of God and her passion for the role of music, worship and the arts in and through the Church has led her to pen numerous congregational anthems such as ‘Hosanna’, ‘Desert Song’ and ‘Man of Sorrows’ as well as devotional favorites ‘Transfiguration’, ‘None But Jesus’ and ‘Lead Me to the Cross’.
You will often find Brooke deep in search of the perfect lyric on any given afternoon.
In September 2015, Brooke and Scott welcomed their daughter Dylan Wilde Ligertwood into their lives - their greatest and most rewarding collaboration to date.
