Jonatha Brooke – Being Fearless as an Artist and the Art of Collaboration

Jonatha Brooke has been writing songs, making records and touring since the early 90’s. After four major label releases, she started her own independent label, Bad Dog Records in 1999, and has since released eight more albums – her two most recent, the companion CD to her critically acclaimed, one woman, Off-Broadway musical My Mother Has Four Noses; and 2016’s Midnight. Hallelujah.
Jonatha has co-written songs with Katy Perry and The Courtyard Hounds. She’s also written for four Disney films, numerous television shows, and she composed and performed the theme song for Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse.
In 2014 Ms. Brooke debuted her one woman musical, My Mother Has Four Noses, at the Duke Theater on 42nd Street, in NYC. The show ran for 3 months, to rave reviews, and was a critics’ pick in the NY Times. She performed a month-long run of My Mother has 4 Noses at the Jungle Theater in Minneapolis in 2018. Jonatha is currently touring nationally and internationally, teaching songwriting workshops along the way, and working on two new musical projects – Quadroon, with the late legendary jazz pianist/composer Joe Sample; and Switched with playwright Geoffrey Nauffts.
Jonatha is the recipient of a McKnight Artist Fellowship Grant for 2018. She released an EP of new songs in April of 2019, titled, Imposter and is touring in support of it.
