Singer, songwriter, guitarist Jonatha Brooke began issuing albums that merged folk and pop during the early 1990’s, first as a member of the female duo named the Story, and later as a solo artist. Brooke formed the Story in the early ’80s, playing regular local gigs during her college career. Her first big break came when the Story’s demo, Over Oceans, resulted in signing with an independent label. The band would release a sophomore effort, The Angel, two years later before breaking up allowing Brooke to pursue a solo career. Since then, Brooke has released multiple albums, and performed a pair of songs on Disney’s Return to Never Land soundtrack, including an original song, “I’ll Try,” along with a cover of “The Second Star to the Right.” Two years later, she performed a set of ten shows at the Public Theater in New York, the highlights of which were collected for the 2006 release of Live in New York, complete with a DVD of the concert. Careful What You Wish For followed in 2007, and Brooke subsequently delved into Woody Guthrie’s lyric journals for her follow-up effort. Released in 2008, The Works paired her original music with Guthrie’s previously unheard lyrics.
