Episode 087 - Jonatha Brooke

Jonatha Brooke's first band - the critically acclaimed The Story with the talented Jennifer Kimball was the beginning of an impressive run of beautifully written songs that today culminate in her latest project – a Broadway musical play called My Mother Has 4 Noses.

Currently touring the US, this musical play explores her relationship with her mother who suffered the devastating effects of Alzheimer's.

We caught up with her just before she played a fantastic concert at City Winery Boston and talked first kisses (don’t worry we bleeped out names to protect the innocent), alternate tunings, Woody Guthrie poems and her new life in the theater.

Song List:

Song 1: So Much Mine (The Story - Angel In The House) Song 2: My Flowers Grow Green (Jonatha Brooke - The Works) Song 3: Where Were You (Jonatha Brooke - Plumb) Song 4: Wind (Jonatha Brooke - My Mother Has 4 Noses)

Live Song:

Song 1: Put The Gun Down
