Jonatha Brooke's musical career began in the late 80's with fellow songwriter Jennifer Kimball while at college. The pair later formed the band "The Story", and after writing their debut album "Grace in Gravity" the pair became signed to the label Elektra Records in the early 90's. The music at this point was predominantly Folk fused with Pop, but when Jonatha and Jennifer went their separate ways in 1994, Brooke started writing more commercially styled songs. She released a steady stream of albums throughout the 90's (Plumb, 10 Cent Wings, Steady Pull). Jonatha has also become well known in the music she contributed to, and played in the Disney film "Return to Never Land". In the film she covered the song "Second star to the right" and contributed to the song "Ill Try".

 

Jonatha Brooke borrowed the title of her latest album, The Works, from a Woody Guthrie lyric she came across in a notebook stored at the Guthrie archives – “ I am the WORKS, the whole WORKS,” the American folk legend had scribbled, “The saint, the sinner, the drinker, the thinker....” Placing hitherto unseen Guthrie lyrics in contemporary musical settings to create brand-new songs, Brooke, backed by a small combo of stellar jazz and rock players, indeed offers us the works -- an extraordinarily intimate, emotionally revealing portrait of an American folk legend and an album that’s very much her own. Says Brooke,” I started finding these really personal lyrics -- searching, spiritual ones -- and this gorgeous, sexy poetry, and it was fascinating. It drew me in and made me think I could do something really cool with this material.”
