American singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke, who began issuing albums that merged folk and pop during the early 1990s, first as member of a female duo named the Story and later as a solo artist, plays songs from her latest album, The Works, at Norwich Arts Centre on Wednesday (8pm).

Since the early 90s this vivacious singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has won immense critical acclaim and built a remarkably devoted fanbase with a series of beguiling albums.

Her first solo effort Plumb (1995) was followed by 10 Cent Wings (1997) which marked a shift from her earlier folk-pop material to a more radio-friendly style.

Billboard Magazine proclaimed, 'Jonatha Brooke is one of the most gifted and unique artists of the decade.' A live album followed in 1999 ahead of 2001s Steady Pull which saw remarkable success in the USA where Linger was one of the most played songs on the radio that year.

Her latest album The Works released in 2008 was co-produced by Jonatha and the legendary Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones).

Jonatha will be performing a solo show.
