Biography

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 nine more albums - including the companion CD to her critically acclaimed, one woman, Off-Broadway musical My Mother Has Four Noses.

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.

Since Covid-19 halted all touring plans, Ms. Brooke has been performing Live Stream concerts weekly from her home on Facebook and YouTube - “The Kitchen Covid Concerts” - Mondays at 2pm CDT.
She is teaching online Master Classes in songwriting, and is working on three musical projects - Quadroon, with the late legendary jazz pianist/composer Joe Sample; Switched with playwright Geoffrey Nauffts; and TEMPUS with Jaclyn Backhaus.

Jonatha is the recipient of a McKnight Artist Fellowship Grant for 2018. She also won the International Acoustic Music Award for Best Artist, and for best song for “Put the Gun Down.”
