Wakey!Wakey! Debuts "Brooklyn" on One Tree Hill, Releases Single
New York based singer-songwriter Mike Grubbs aka Wakey!Wakey!, performed his moving piano-driven single "Brooklyn," on The CW's hit show One Tree Hill on Monday night.
Mike Grubbs is no stranger to the show, having had his song "War Sweater" featured during last season's finale.
The season capping usage was so well-received that the One Tree Hill writers decided to invite Grubbs to join the cast.
Earlier this season, he was introduced to the universe of the show (under his own name, no less!) as the new bartender at the show's famed music venue, The TRIC.

In this week's episode, Grubbs sat down at the piano in the deserted TRIC and played "Brooklyn" in its entirety.
With his character having just been "outed" as a musician, we're hoping that some exciting storyline developments may be in the works for the remainder of the season, à la Kate Voegele. (The pop sensation took a similar route in 2008, playing the character "Mia" on the show, which in turn launched her career.) We'll just have to keep tuning in on Monday nights to find out what's in store for Grubbs!
Watch "Brooklyn" video:
The track, "Brooklyn," is now available at all digital retailers on the Brooklyn/Manhattan single, complimented by b-side "Clinton St. Girl."
Grubbs is currently offering up the b-side for free at the Wakey!Wakey! Myspace page in exchange for an email. That's a small price to pay for the track's buoyant charm and piano-led beauty.
