Michele Brourman began making up songs when she was three years old. By the age of thirteen, she had formed a small ensemble for which she was composer, musical director and singer. She’s been creating songs and singing them ever since, always 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. Olivia Newton-John, Rita Coolidge, and Sheena Easton are among the many others who have recorded her work. 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, Corbin Bleu, and a host of other singer/actors. Michele’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.
Michele has been called “a consummate artist/composer…. whose songs target the human condition with a simplicity, honesty and directness which make them into contemporary classics.”
Her CD “Fools and Little Children” is available online, as is her newest CD, “The Price of Love”.
