Original Music

The ultimate creative outlet; Neil is passionate about writing new original music that him and his audience can emotionally connects with. He works hard to improve his songwriting skills with each new release.

Storm Clouds

It's Alright

Released: June 18, 2021

This is the second original song written, recorded, and produced by Neil Brockman. It features additional vocals by Niki Kennedy, and electric guitar by Adrian Sgoifo.

 

He describes it as “a song of conflict, yet comfort.” This song explores the wide range of painful  emotions that we feel when our whole life seemingly falls apart.  Anger, resentment, sadness, fear, uncertainty, hopelessness… Yet no matter how difficult things get, sometimes all we need is a bit of reassurance.  A warm, calming voice to remind us that this too shall pass...and in the end, it's going to be alright.

"I'll hold you in a warm embrace.

And you will find that it's alright...it's okay."

Sky

Thick and Thin

Released: June 4, 2020

This is the first original song written, recorded, and produced by Neil Brockman.  It's dedicated to his three best friends that he's known since the age of five.  Their friendship has withstood the test of time and they remain best friends to this day.  The song speaks to how our meaningful, long-lasting relationships play such an important role in our lives.

"Through all the pain and sin...through thick and thin...

We stand together."

Recorded Covers

Neil enjoys re-imagining songs in his own style based on his unique interpretations of them.

Bobcaygeon

By The Tragically Hip

Bobcaygeon is one of Neil’s all-time favorite songs to play live.  It always reminds him of strumming an acoustic guitar around a campfire in the company of good friends, with everyone singing along.  This recorded cover is Neil’s unique interpretation of the original song by The Tragically Hip.  

"It was in Bobcaygeon, I saw the constellations,

Reveal themselves one star at a time"

Confusion

By Clarissa Diokno
Released: June 18, 2021

 

Confusion is written and performed by Clarissa Diokno, a singer-songwriter from Kitchener, Ontario. Her debut single “...follows the journey of a complicated relationship that will make you feel the range of human emotions”.   Neil's version introduces a slower, darker tone and aims to add a warm and mysterious element to this outstanding song.

"My head and heart don't agree, waiting so patiently,

I can't shake these feelings..."
