Critically Acclaimed American Folk Rock
Singer-Songwriter and Guitarist
Zipper Concert Hall, The Colburn School
Wednesday, October 18 at 8:00 p.m.
Merging elements of folk, rock and pop, often with poignant lyrics and complex harmonies, Jonatha Brooke performs live in concert for one-night only at Los Angeles’ Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School in downtown Los Angeles. Jonatha has been a singer, songwriter, and guitarist since the late 80’s, and her songs have been used in television shows and movies. Jonatha began her career as one half of The Story (originally called “Jonatha & Jennifer”), a duo which played the coffeehouse folk circuit and radio in Boston along with two successful albums. After four major label releases, Jonatha started her own independent label, Bad Dog Records in 1999, and has since released eight more albums including the companion CD to her critically acclaimed one woman, Off-Broadway show My Mother Has 4 Noses (which ran for 10 weeks) and her most recent studio release, the timely “Midnight. Hallelujah” (2016), the first time ever a woman has composed, arranged, produced and performed a complete album of Woody Guthrie songs.
In recent years, Jonatha has co-written songs with Katy Perry (for her album PRISM), and The Courtyard Hounds. She’s also written for four Disney films, various television shows, and composed the theme song for Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse.
“I’m so looking forward to playing Los Angeles again. It’s been way too long, and there’s certainly a lot to sing about. Sometimes it feels like music is the ONLY way to try to make sense of what’s going on in the world. I’ll be bringing some shiny brand new songs, and I will polish off the old beloveds too,”
Expect provocative songs, performed with great wit and charm.
“Charming and very funny. A seasoned musician with a beautiful voice, Brooke rocks it”
