Since 1990 Meredith has been considered one of the West End's brightest stars, originating and recording roles such as 'Betty Schaeffer' in 'Sunset Boulevard', 'Lily' in the RSC's 'The Secret Garden' and playing the iconic roles of  'Eponine' in Les Misérables and 'Christine' in 'The Phantom of the Opera'

After a ten year absence, Meredith returns to performing with the release of her  debut solo album. 'Someone Else's Story' is a hand-picked collection of songs from contemporary musical theatre, each one of them telling a very personal story. Composers include Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Michel Legrand, Claude Michel-Schonberg, Stiles and Drewe and Stephen Schwartz.

This stunning, intimate collection features Arrangements and Musical Direction by Paul Bateman (Musical Director for Sarah Brightman, Lesley Garrett) and was recorded at London's Angel Studios between September - December 2011.
