This comes from her official website:
Fraser fell in love with the confessional lyrics and timeless melodies of James Taylor, Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Paula Cole, and eventually began to play the guitar. In 2002, when she was 18, Fraser signed with Sony Music and moved to Auckland where she played regularly at local venues while she wrote the songs that would appear on her debut album, What To Do With Daylight. That album, released in New Zealand in 2003, debuted at No. 1 and achieved gold status the same week. It eventually went eight times platinum, selling more than 120,000 copies in New Zealand alone, and remained in the Top 10 on the album charts for more than a year. The album spawned five Top 20 singles and made Fraser a star in her home country, leading to 2004 tours of Australia and New Zealand with John Mayer and David Bowie.
After the success of her first album, Fraser moved to Sydney, where she has lived since 2004. She commutes to the U.S. for touring. On 17 March 2008 she married Scott Ligertwood, in Sydney, changing her name to Brooke Ligertwood."Brooke Fraser" has remained her stage name for her activity as a Sony BMG recording/touring artist. She continues to contribute to writing songs for Hillsong Church, now as "Brooke Ligertwood". Among her notable worship songs are "Desert Song" and "Hosanna".

Brooke Fraser Brooke Fraser and her husband Scott Ligertwood arrive for the 2010 Vodafone Music Awards at Vector Arena on October 7, 2010 in Auckland, New Zealand.

Her third studio album Flags has become the most successful album of her career. Today's Sunday Song is called "Something in the Water" and it is from that album. It reached number one on the RIANZ singles chart in 2010 and it is my favourite song at the moment....I listen to it about 5 times a day!


I hope you also enjoy Something in the Water as much as I do!

If so, then I would love it if you could link up your favourite song with me today-you can link up with any post, old or new.
