After studying classical music for 17 years and graduating from LSU, Brooke Waggoner knew exactly what she was after: She moved immediately to Nashville to start a career as a singer-songwriter. Since then, she's independently put out four full-length albums and an EP, recorded with Jack White and toured as part of his band.

Waggoner's latest album, Sweven, was released in January and features a dozen songs, some of which were inspired by recordings her parents made of her talking and singing as a child. Hear four of these songs and more about her songwriting in the session above.
