In Their Words: “‘The Bridge’ is a song about songs — about how music can be a salve; a lifeline between people; a way to communicate when conversation fails. Playing music with another person has a special magic, and I think that’s because it’s gratifying in the most simple and human way: it makes us feel heard, but it also forces us to listen.” — Meg Brooks

“‘The Bridge was Meg’s first foray into songwriting, and it really was the impetus for creating The Brookses and crafting the album. I’ve been a songwriter and musician for many years, and I was impressed with the quality and maturity of her writing right out of the gate. We’ve been singing and playing together since Meg was a little girl — that family harmony is a real thing, just listen to the Carter Family, or the Louvin Brothers, or the Delmores. I’ve sung harmonies with some amazing women singers in my career, but there is something very special about the way Meg’s voice blends with mine. It’s almost like there’s a third voice in the mix.” — Jim Brooks
