About Jonatha Brooke
Jonatha Brooke has written songs, made records and toured since her days in Boston with The Story. In 1995, Jonatha released Plumb, the first of two solo albums on MCA/Universal, followed by Ten Cent Wings in 1997.
In 1999 she started her own independent label, Bad Dog, and has since released six more albums. Her 2008 release, The Works, combined previously unheard, unpublished Woody Guthrie lyrics with her own music and arrangements. Recently, she’s co-written songs with Katy Perry and with The Courtyard Hounds. Jonatha has written for three Disney films and several television shows, and has composed the theme song for Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse.
From 2010 to 2013, Jonatha took a touring hiatus, to write and develop her one-woman play, My Mother Has 4 Noses, a mother-daughter love story about her mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. In 2014, 4 Noses played for ten weeks, at The Duke Theater on 42nd Street to rave reviews — “Devastating and gorgeous. A poignantly funny, beautifully created narrative” (New York Times). A ground-swell of social networking and community support followed. The newly released companion recording, of the same name, landed in the top 50 Albums of 2014 by ABC Entertainment.
