Amanda McBroom has been composing music since her teens, and her songwriting and concert careers were launched by her Golden Globe winning song “The Rose” – the mega-hit recorded by Bette Midler for the 1979 film of the same name, about a Janis Joplin-esque character. Since then, McBroom has appeared all over the world in concert, and her music has been recorded for TV, films and by major recording artists including LeAnn Rimes, Betty Buckley, Barbara Cook and The Manhattan Transfer.
Michele Brourman began making up songs when she was three years old. By age thirteen, she had formed a small ensemble for which she was composer, musical director and singer. She’s been making up songs and singing them ever since with a joy that is infectious. Her best-loved song, “My Favorite Year”, has been recorded by Michael Feinstein, Dame Cleo Laine, and Margaret Whiting, She’s written and produced the songs for 18 animated features for Universal Studios, including the beloved “Land Before Time” series, writing for Reba McIntyre, Michael York, Lucy Lawless, Donny Osmond, Olivia Newton-John, Corbin Bleu, and a host of other singer/actors. Brourman’s work has been featured in television and film and performed by countless cabaret artists, garnering numerous awards and critical acclaim. Her work for the theater includes the score for the musical “Dangerous Beauty” with longtime collaborator Amanda McBroom, produced at the Pasadena Playhouse, and the off-Broadway show “The Belle of Tombstone” with lyricist Sheilah Rae.
