“I have had the pleasure of working with Brooklyn Summer for over a year now. Brooklyn is a true talent, both as an artist and songwriter. She is mature and professional beyond her years but most importantly, she is genuine and real. It’s a joy to help guide Brooklyn as she finds her authentic sound in the studio and also to help her in making great records! I thoroughly enjoyed working with her on ‘Cowboy Killer’ and watching it come to life. Brooklyn Summer is a superstar in the making and I am excited to play a part in her journey to stardom!” –  John D. Willis, Multi-Award-Winning Session Musician & Record Producer


“There’s a certain magic that hangs around after some co-writes. You feel it when you’re driving home listening to the work tape, and you know for sure you got something special during that session. That feeling has stuck with me since the day Brooklyn, Bill, and I wrote ‘Cowboy Killer!’ I’m beyond proud of Brooklyn and her fearlessness when it comes to saying exactly what it is she wants to say, and that’s the same energy we captured in this song.“  Ericca Latza, Singer/Songwriter & Co-Writer


“I always love the twist on a common saying. When Ericca mentioned ‘Cowboy Killer,’ I thought if we twisted it just right it would be deadly cool!” – Bill DiLuigi, Multi-Award- Winning Songwriter/Artist Musician & Co-Writer

(Nashville, TN. – June 4, 2024) – Fourteen-year-old singer/songwriter Brooklyn Summer is excited about the release of her spirited new single, “Cowboy Killer.” The rockin’ song boasts a more mature sound for the teen phenomenon. It is playful and light-hearted yet powerful. Reminiscent of the popular ’90s sound with a heavy dose of modern edge flair, “Cowboy Killer” is already creating a buzz among industry professionals and music fans alike. The song, which is already nearing 8k streams, was featured twice on Radio SoBro’s NuMu Friday upon release, it was one of  Pop Blitz Magazine’s New Music Friday picks, and was added to Center Stage Magazine’s Fresh Indie Country playlist. “Cowboy Killer” is now available on all digital and streaming platforms. Listen HERE.


Cleverly crafted with Nashville tunesmiths Bill DiLuigi and Ericca Latza, “Cowboy Killer” was produced by multi-award-winning session musician and record producer, John D. Willis (Alabama, Blake Shelton, Faith Hill, Florida Georgia Line, Gretchen Wilson, Kenny Chesney, Jewel, Luke Bryan, Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson) for Mount Wills Productions. “Cowboy Killer” is one of those “feel good” songs that will have you crankin’ up the volume and singin’ and dancing along in no time. In the song, Summer gets her country on and sets her aim high on a certain cowboy she has her eyes on. With its infectious groove and smokin’ guitars, the stellar production allows Summers’ rich, soaring vocals and signature note-bending to shine through. If you listen carefully, you can hear the young talent’s musical influences – from the earlier sounds of Tanya Tucker, Gretchen Wilson, Martina McBride, and Miranda Lambert to Carrie Underwood and Lainey Wilson. The animated background vocals and harmonies, compliments of Errica Latza, are the icing on the cake!


“‘Cowboy Killer’ was born in just an hour and a half – a testament to our creative synergy,” reflects Summer. “Ericca sparked the initial idea, which resonated with all of us. This song holds a special place in my heart as it allowed me to explore a more mature writing style. I am incredibly grateful for the collaborative spirit of Ericca and Bill, who always empower me to express myself freely. Our sessions are incredibly productive, often resulting in two new songs within a mere three hours. Working with them is truly an inspiring experience!”


“It’s raining on the pavement on a corner in Cheyenne
There’s a lonely desperado with a lighter in his hand
They say them Marlboro Reds are gonna take him to his grave
But Cowboy Killer is my name


Yeah, that boy’s a goner but he just don’t know it yet
There’s a smoke ring halo hanging low over his head
But I’m the burning kinda hit, that’s gonna take his breath away
Cause Cowboy Killer is my name


He’s a tumbleweed that’s born to roll
A wild Mustang taillights on the road
I’m a pretty pistol been working on her aim
Cause Cowboy Killer is my name


If I end up on a poster with a bounty on my head
Let ’em lock me up cause I dressed to knock him dead
That lipstick in my holster, well that’s the one smoking gun to blame
Cause Cowboy Killer is my name




It’s raining on the pavement on a corner in Cheyenne
I’m spinning my wheels, hot on the heels of a real wanted man”

Brooklyn Summer is a superstar in the making. The California native who was born in Morgan Hill (Silicon Valley) and moved to LA in third grade, proves that dynamite comes in small packages and people are taking notice. Although she may be tiny in stature, Summer is quickly becoming known for her BIG voice. The young country-rocker notes artists from Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Lainey Wilson, and Pistol Annies, to Adele, Christina Aguilera, and Kelly Clarkson as her biggest musical influences and she takes a little something that she has learned along the way from each of them adding to it her own distinctive style to create something special and unforgettable.


Summer has already graced the stages of many of Music City’s most prestigious venues since her move from Los Angeles – the iconic Bluebird Cafe, Live Oak, The Listening Room, Cafe, The Local,  the world-famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, and Troubadour Golf & Field Club to name a few.  She  has also been busy writing and recording with Nashville’s finest hit songwriters and producers including Blue Foley (“God’s Will” “Girls Going Nowhere”/Ashley McBride), Kirsti Manna (“Austin”/Blake Shelton), Lance Carpenter (“Love Me Like You Mean It”/Kelsea Ballerini), Michael Jay (“Toy Soldiers”/Martika, “Declaration of Love”/Celine Dion), Steve Dean (“Watching You”/Rodney Atkins, “Round About Way”/George Strait), Steve O’Brien (“Rock My World (Little Country Girl)”/Brooks & Dunn),  and Terri Jo Box (“Hillbilly Hippie”/Lainey Wilson, “Dear Old Sun”/Miranda Lambert, “Bible and a .44”/Ashley McBryde, Eric Church with Ashley McBryde, and Trisha Yearwood feat. Patty Loveless,  “God Bless The Boy (Cori’s Song”/Cody Johnson).


It’s evident Summer is not afraid of hard work. She’s been performing since the tender age of 5 and is mature way beyond her 14 years. Not only is she a singer/songwriter, but an actress, voice-over artist, and print model. She’s already appeared in numerous films and is recognized by both the Los Angeles and Nashville communities for her talent – volunteering her voice singing for hospice and performing at local county fairs and festivals. She was named Grand Champion winner of both the California State Talent Competition and the Greater Bay Area Talent Competitions in her age group.


Summer resides in Music City where she is home-schooled, currently a rising sophomore in high school, and working diligently on her music career every day. She spends time co-writing and has upwards of 100 cataloged songs with BMI, is taking vocal lessons, and teaches herself guitar. Summer practices daily, and performs all over the southeast and California. Despite her busy schedule, Summer is still a typical teenager, enjoying the same things as her peers. When she is not on stage, she enjoys drawing, swing dancing, horseback riding, playing Roblox, and loves animals.


Summer’s last single, “Kickin’ It Country” was released in February and is nearing an impressive 300k streams. Her prior single, “Blues On The Blacktop” was released in May of 2023 and is approaching 250k streams. Summer is currently in the studio working on new music to be released later this year.  When asked what is next for Summer, she notes “I would love to be signed by a record label who understands me and shares my vision and my passion. Music is everything to me! It is universal and so powerful. I want to use my talents, music, and platform to give back to my community and to help others” …and that is exactly what she will do, make a difference…one song at a time.
