BWW Review: Michele Brourman Brings Love Notes to the Birdland Theater Photo BWW Review: Michele Brourman Brings Love Notes to the Birdland Theater
by Stephen Sorokoff - Oct 21, 2019

Among the many fans of Michele Brourman at her show Love Notes at the Birdland Theater last night were a host of singers, songwriters and theatrical folks. They came to hear one of our most gifted singer/songwriter and pianists probably best known for her collaboration and partnership with Amanda McBroom and for composing the song, “”My Favorite Year” It's been recorded by Michael Feinstein, Dame Cleo Laine and Margaret Whiting among others. Hearing an artist perform her own material is always an extra special treat and in Michele's case she also brings her artistry at the keyboard to the experience which enhances every nuance of her music. Michele's phrasing and harmonies are the perfect fit for her haunting, funny, and moving songs.
