When it comes to writing and performing folk music, JONATHA BROOKE is a seasoned professional. Utilizing her versatile soprano, sharp lyrical sensibility, and fiercely authentic stage presence, Brooke has been busy moving audiences and winning fans for three decades. An ever-evolving artist, Brooke took a career-altering turn in 2014 when her autobiographical one-woman-show “My Mother Has Four Noses” opened off-Broadway to rave reviews. It’s been described as “haunted and haunting” (New York Times) and “poignant and truthful” (Entertainment Weekly). But Jonatha Brooke doesn’t rest. On her latest release, 2016’s Midnight. Hallelujah, Brooke delivers again, exploring love, loss, and spirituality through her signature sound and keen storytelling sense.
Music is her natural storytelling voice, a direct line to her emotions.

Songwriter Jonatha Brooke is a strong performer in every sense of the word. Carrying herself as the dancer she is, in possession of a nimble soprano that can go from a whisper to a roar, she is adept at owning a spotlight.
