Another Saturday music blog on Durham Cool, hurrah! Jonatha Brooke makes her way onto Durham Cool in due time. A Jonatha fan since this super talented singer/songwriter artist performed in The Story and now late into her solo career. If this is your first taste you’re in for a treat. I include a few of my favorite tracks starting with “Red Dress”. You will be delighted with the lyrical subtlety and find yourself surprised she is not receiving more attention outside of the usual singer/songwriter fan groups. Most NYC musicians and fans are very familiar with her and she is known on the opposite coast. Neil Finn approves as you will find on the new dress harmony vocal obligato.
