Jonatha Brooke Concert Tickets

Jonatha Brooke is an American folk rock singer-songwriter whose music is marked by complex harmonies and poignant lyrics. Her career began while she was a student at Amherst College in the early 1980s when she and fellow student Jennifer Kimball formed Jonatha & Jennifer, releasing one tape under that name before renaming themselves to The Story (their tracks often had interesting back-stories, which they would share when playing live).

Woody Guthrie died in 1967, but his influence on the US music scene is as great as ever. He was an extraordinary songwriter, tackling personal and political themes, but always mixing anger and outrage with optimism and good humour. Although his recording career ended in the late 40s, he kept writing during the years when he was too ill to perform, and his lyrics (though not the intended melodies) have been preserved in the Guthrie archives...

Solo and with the Story, Brooke has been a showoff and a bit of a priss. But setting unrecorded Woody Guthrie lyrics to music like the Klezmatics and Billy Bragg & Wilco before her, she blooms. The strophic simplicity of Guthrie's songforms demands direct melodies, and the two self-penned ones she couldn't do without are touched by his cultivated unsophistication. This isn't the Woody whose guitar killed fascists...

Jonatha Brooke has been making intimate, well-crafted records for years, but she remains an outsider to super success, her literate folk-pop going mostly unnoticed by the public (if adored by critics). Befitting her Amherst coffeehouse roots, Back in the Circus is stocked with lovingly detailed songs as well as cover versions of other artist's work, Brooke lending her aching soprano to very personal renditions of "God Only Knows," "Fire and Rain" and "Eye in the Sky...

Dropped from the majors last year, pop-folkster Brooke has picked herself up and started her own label. Its inaugural release is a terrific set from Brooke's '98 tour. Covering tunes from her days as half of the coeds-with-mesmerizing-harmonies duo The Story to 1997's sumptuous, catchy 10[cents] Wings, Jonatha Brooke Live showcases Brooke's mournful-edged voice and intimate songs.

Much of the press surrounding Jonatha Brooke's The Works trumpets the fact that the veteran folkie is the first woman to peruse the vaults of unreleased Woody Guthrie lyrics and build songs around them. But that milestone, like a vice presidential candidacy, isn't worth squat if the musician or politician in question isn't qualified, viable, or in good faith. Happily, Brooke is all of those things, and has been for quite some time...
