In the early 1980s, she moved to Los Angeles to further her career in music. At that time, she recorded the songs that later appeared on ''See It Through My Eyes''. In the later 1980s and early 1990s, she was a member of The Graces, which recorded one album ''A Perfect View'' in 1989.

In the wake of the enormous success of Alanis Morissette in 1995, Brooks landed a major label contract with Capitol Records. She was nearly 39 years old before having her first hit single, "Bitch", in 1997, which garnered her a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. Her album ''Blurring the Edges'' achieved platinum sales and peaked at 22 on the Billboard 200. She toured in the US and Europe in 1997 and 1998 to support the album.

She originally wrote the song "Sin City", which appears on this album, for the movie ''Snake Eyes'', directed by her friend Brian De Palma.

The label's demise also interrupted her tour with Melissa Etheridge that summer, causing her and the band to return early to Los Angeles. Also in 2002, Brooks produced Jennifer Love Hewitt's album, ''BareNaked'', and appeared on the VH1 ''Divas Las Vegas'' program as a guest guitar soloist with Celine Dion and Anastacia.

In 2004, Brooks signed a new contract with the SLG Records label and released the material of ''Bad Bad One'' as ''Shine''. Television psychologist Dr. Phil chose the song "Shine" as the theme for his show.

As of August 2005, Brooks was working on a children's album titled If I Could Be... and continuing to develop new artists as a
