ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
She has shared the top ten chart with Bono, toured with Mick Jagger and has been a label-mate of Paul McCartney’s.......but the person who has made the biggest impact in Meredith Brooks' music is only 3 years old.......

The artist who electrified the world and established herself as an undeniable creative force in a generation of female rockers with her multi-platinum disc “Blurring the Edges” and it’s worldwide hit single "Bitch" in 1997 became a mother in 2004. Motivated by the birth of her son, Meredith has focused her imaginative energy and passion towards the writing and recording of a children’s record, “If I Could Be…”. “It’s funny how trying to be the best mom I can be and feeling so happy about it has produced the most inspired music of my whole career.” says Brooks.

Before her son was born, Meredith had already risen to heights most artists only dream of. Once "Bitch" and her subsequent Top Ten single "What Would Happen" launched Brooks to superstardom, she began touring the world extensively. Brooks performed as a featured artist on each of the Lilith Fair Tours. She appeared multiple times on TV shows such as The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien, Rosie O’Donnell, The View, Regis & Kelly, Dr. Phil Show and VH1 Divas to name a few.

While on tour, Meredith found a unique way to "give back," creating Anybody's Mentoring Program (AMP). On various tour stops from 1997 through 2002 (approximately 70 cities in all), Brooks would arrange to speak with crowds of high school students about making it in both the music industry and in life. She performed her music, but the focus was on relating her experiences and stirring others to work hard to achieve their goals. "It was great committing to this kind of community service," she says. "There was something magical about taking the focus off myself and sharing the realities of the business and what it takes to succeed." Meredith was honored in 2000 by an invitation to speak in Washington DC at a congressional breakfast about her mentoring program, AMP, and the important positive place that art has in children’s educational programs.

Between recording albums, the twice Grammy-nominated Brooks has become a first call record producer and has developed her own production company, Kissing Booth Music. Meredith produced Jennifer Love Hewitt’s breakthrough project “Barenaked”, whose title song was one of 2002's most memorable hits. In 2003 she co-wrote and produced for Hilary Duff’s mult-platinum album, “Metamorphosis”. The first artist signed exclusively to Kissing Booth is 17 year-old rock sensation, Bec Hollcraft. Meredith and Bec are currently in the midst of recording Bec’s debut album.

In 2004, Meredith’s inspirational title track from her album, “Shine” was chosen by popular TV therapist, Dr. Phil for a series of on-air TV Spots and as the anthem for the show’s new season. The song was chosen by Dr. McGraw from among hundreds of submissions because it fit the forward thinking, triumph over adversity philosophy of the show. As Dr. Phil put it: "The split second I heard it, I said, 'That's it, that's the song we want to be the anthem for the show this year.’” The song’s message also reflects Brooks’ attitude towards her own survival in the music industry. It was just after “Shine” was picked up that Meredith’s son was born, an event that Dr. Phil and his wife, Robin, feted at their home, along with Entertainment Tonight and In Style magazine.

Today, Meredith’s latest effort, “If I Could Be…” captures the electricity and magic of all that has happened for Meredith since 2004, with the same song writing caliber of her past releases. The difference is that this album is written for young children as well as their parents. It explores all of the wonder within the everyday events of childhood. “From day one of my son’s life, beautiful melodies would pop into my head and I’d start singing them to him, -- funny songs too -- songs about what I imagined he was thinking,” says Brooks. “If I Could Be…” is the perfect album for children and parents to enjoy together. This album is what a children’s album should be… engaging, interactive, and fun. Brooks says, “Making this record has been so effortless and enjoyable. This has been the best writing and recording experience of my entire life.”

Mom in Austin

the whole family loves this CD
Just had to say that this CD is really enjoyed by all our family--most importantly, of course, by my hard to please 3 and 6 year old girls. The tunes are creative, upbeat, and so catchy (we all find ourselves humming the tunes.) We hope to hear lots more in the future (and hope this one turns up on Parents Choice awards.)

CD "If I Could Be" by Meredith Brooks

Beep! Beep!
Move over, sappy kids records that you can't wait to turn off. Meredith's taken her hooky song-writing talents and her obvious love for kids and made a record that I don't want to turn off any more than my daughter does. The lyrics are full of wonderful pictures that your kids can relate to and will put you back to all the beautiful memories of your kids...and even some of your own childhood. Makes driving in your car, cleaning up the house, playing games, dancing through the living room, or getting ready to take the dog for a walk just a bit more fun. The music really gives you an infinite set of possibilities for enjoyment with your child. Hope this will be the first in a series from Meredith. It's such a great musical storybook! Thanks, Meredith!

We all love this!
I can't beleive that this is finally out. We bought this after hearing Meredith on XM Kids. We were lucky enough to purchase one of the first copies at a show that Meredith was performing at. It's become my two little girls favorite CD by far.

If I Could Be
"If I Could Be" is a fabulous family friendly CD that everyone loves to listen and dance to! As a mom, I am so excited to have a children's CD that I actually look forward to listening to with my kids! I bought this CD as gifts to all our kids teachers and they have been playing it in the classroom and it is a huge hit with the kids! My only question is, when's the tour?

pasadena


I love it! My kids love it! The songs are so catchy, fun and educational. This album is a refreshing alternative to what is available for children. Meredith has written songs with great melodies. We just don't get tired of listening to this CD. It's wonderful to have something that brings the family together in the car!
