For more than two decades Jonatha Brooke has created shining musical gems - brilliant combinations of poetic lyrics, complex harmonies and memorable melodies - that have earned her legions of devoted fans and journalistic raves as a highly respected artist.
With ten solo releases (and two from her duo The Story) to her credit, her most recent endeavor was writing and performing the one-woman musical My Mother Has 4 Noses. The critically acclaimed project - which ran in NYC at The Duke on 42nd Street - documents the poignant journey of caring for her mother, who was in the advanced stages of Altzheimer's-induced dementia, during the last two years of her life.
Another notable project was 2008's The Works, a collection of songs written after being invited into Woody Guthrie's archives by his daughter. Jonatha combed through previously unseen lyrics of Woody's, edited, pared, and set them to her own new music, creating a stunning collection of songs.
Currently Jonatha, who lives in Minneapolis, is touring her recently released CD Midnight. Hallelujah., working on three new musicals, and plans on performing more dates of 4 Noses in various cities.
