Best Of 2022

If St. Pete had a soundtrack, Broom Closet would play one of the songs. The trio initially consisted of Avery Moore (vocals, guitar), Rachel Coderre (drums), Odessa Connor (bass), and later Jeff Williams on guitar. After seven years, the group called it quits as their lives move on, for now, in different directions. Its farewell album, Part I, was released this summer on all streaming platforms. Recorded at Pulp Arts in Gainesville, the five-song EP is heartbreaking, raw, and beautiful. Just like the band to leave us wanting just a little more.
