Singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke coming to The Kate May 23
Boston-raised folk-rock singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke (formerly of the duo The Story) will play a show at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook Thursday, May 23.
Brooke was among a group of solo voice talents such as Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin and Mary Chapin Carpenter who emerged in the 1990s with strong/quirky attitude, bouncy tunes and occasionally thorny lyrics. You might remember Brooke’s song “Linger” in 2001; her latest EP is called “Imposter” on Bad Dog Records.
“I explored a few different themes on ‘Imposter’ — feeling like the emperor with no clothes, a very cinematic excursion into revenge, that ever present struggle with faith and loss,” said Brooke in a press release.
Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, 300 Main St., Old Saybrook. Thursday, May 23, 7:30 p.m. $35. 860-510-0473. TheKate.org
