With his third solo album Future Ghosts in his luggage, which will be released on February 16, 2024, Dekker will be touring Germany in March 2024.


Brookln Dekker grew up in the Midwest of the USA. In 2003, he founded the indie folk duo Rue Royale with his wife Ruth Dekker, moved to England and toured Europe extensively until 2014. In 2020, he produced his first solo album Slow Reveal: Chapter One under the name Dekker together with Berlin drummer and producer Stefan Wittich, whose tracks quickly landed on several major folk playlists. 'This Here Island', 'The Love' and 'Tethered, Wrapped Around' are streamed over 30 million times on Spotify alone and rotate on several major radio stations across Europe. In the USA, the album even entered the NACC Top 200 (US College Charts) at number 70 at the end of December 2020. Dekker gained further fame through the use of 'Tethered, Wrapped Around' in the Netflix series Kitz.


Dekker finally released his follow-up album, I Won't Be Your Foe, in May 2022. Working once again with Stefan Wittich and mixing/mastering engineer Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Whitney, The Staves,), he manages to build on his indie-folk blueprint and the success of his debut album. The single 'Maybe October' becomes an indie hit. In the same year, Dekker, who is unmistakable in music videos and on stage thanks to his large hat, plays a successful tour of Germany. With his band consisting of Brookln Dekker (vocals/git), Stefan Wittich (drums/percussion) and Andi Fins (keys/bass/bvs), Dekker's shows create dynamic and rousing live moments that get the audience dancing and singing along. Sold-out shows, e.g. at the Lido in Berlin, and numerous festival appearances in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark and France are further proof of this. With a full tour calendar behind him, a worldwide radio presence and a steadily growing listener base, Dekker has now achieved over 60 million streams for his first two albums.


The first singles from Future Ghosts, 'Hero Myth' and 'Too Young To Die', already give a first taste of the upcoming album - and together have reached almost half a million streams in a very short time and are on rotation on BBC Nottingham, radio eins, Deutschlandfunk Kultur, etc..
