Merging evocative folk, melodic pop and an edgier roots rock sensibility,
singer/songwriter/guitarist Jonatha Brooke began releasing music in the
early 1990s, first as a member of the duo the Story and more enduringly as
a solo artist. After four major label releases, she started her own
independent label, Bad Dog Records in 1999, and has since released ten
more albums – including the companion CD to her critically acclaimed, one
woman, Off-Broadway musical, My Mother Has Four Noses.
Jonatha has co-written and/or produced songs with Katy Perry, The
Courtyard Hounds, and Jessica Simpson. She's also written for four Disney
films, numerous television shows, and she composed and performed the
theme song for Joss Whedon's Dollhouse.
Jonatha teaches online and in person Master Classes in songwriting and
recording. She is working on three musical projects – Quadroon, with the
late, legendary jazz pianist/composer Joe Sample; Switched with playwright
Geoffrey Nauffts; and TEMPUS with Jaclyn Backhaus.
Jonatha was the recipient of a McKnight Artist Fellowship Grant in 2018.
She won the 2019 International Acoustic Music Award for Best Female
Artist for her song “Put the Gun Down,” and was the competition’s overall
grand prize winner. And in 2020, she was awarded an Independent Music
Award (IMA) for her EP, "Imposter.”
Throughout the pandemic, Ms. Brooke performed weekly Live Stream
