Hello!  My name is Amanda McBroom. For those of you who aren't on my Christmas card list yet,  I am a singer/songwriter and an  international concert and recording artist.

My biggest claim to musical fame is my song THE ROSE, which Bette Midler turned into an enormous hit, God bless her, winning her a Grammy and me a Golden Globe.

I have written songs  for TV ( the ahead of it's time TV series COP ROCK), animation ( 14 features based on the singing baby dinosaurs in the LAND BEFORE TIME series  for which I co-wrote the songs with my fabulous  collaborator, Michele Brourman.) My songs have been recorded by everyone from Judy Collins to The Manhattan Transfer to  Reba McIntyre.

 I have recorded 8 prior CD's for my own label, Gecko Records, and  2  albums  for the prestigious audiophile label Sheffield Lab Records. You can find out  much more about me at my website...www.amcbroom.com, if you so desire.

I believe that music is a major tool for speaking across language and space, for healing the spirits in  this troubled world.  We need  healing music now more than ever. My first  CD recording, DREAMING, which included my song, THE ROSE, seems to have been very important to the lives of people  all across the globe. I have the many letters and e-mails in my files that remind me of why I write. 

After a long recording hiatus, and at the URGENT demand of friends and fans, I can't stand it anymore! I HAVE to make a new CD. This will be my 9th! There are so many of my favorite songs that have been resting unheard in my "Unsung Music" closet. It is time to let them out into the audio light. I hope some of the songs on this new CD will offer a  sense of peace, healing, and hope.

The title of the new CD is VOICES , which is based on the title of one of my songs, VOICES THAT COME THROUGH THE WALL. These are all story songs of love and loss and even laughter.

 When  people new to my music ask me to describe my songs,  I tell them I consider myself HBO for the ears. I like to write little 3 minute  musical movies  in the voices of different people. Thus the title...VOICES.

I want  to record a CD of 10 to 12 songs (depending upon funds raised) working with my dear friend and astounding record producer, Fred Mollin, out of Nashville. Fred has produced fine CD's for artists ranging from Jimmy Webb to Johnny Mathis, Vince Gill to Miley Cyrus. He and I collaborated on my last CD of all original material, A WAITING HEART.

We will be recording in Nashville in October.

Pre-production is already in process, song choices already being made, arrangements being discussed, so that we can start immediately and have the project completed before the end of the year. This CD would make a fabulous Valentine's Day gift!

My lonnnng list of beloved fans and  friends circle the globe...we are a wonderful musical family. If you are reading this, then I hope you are about to become a member of my family as well.  I am so excited at the opportunity to share the making of this new musical adventure with everyone. Let's make art together!

So that's my story, and I am sticking to it! I hope it intrigues you enough to allow me the leap!

Thank you, Amanda McBroom

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges?

Aside from the upcoming election, you mean?And the state of the world?

Challenges are making sure we complete the project on time and on or under budget.

Risks would be if Fred is offered some highly lucrative opportunity that would make us have to delay starting the process. Or if I get a big concert date for the Fall, which is not on my calendar at the moment.
Then scheduling would have to be adjusted. I don't forsee that happening. But you never know.
