Mature, wise, and intrepid – somehow Jon Brooks sings a path to the mysterious and complex essence of the human condition.”

The Smiling & Beautiful Countryside

Jon Brooks

The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside is an album of rural Canadian murder ballads and was recorded in Toronto by acclaimed producer/engineer, David Travers-Smith. Jon’s fifth full-length release is an intrepid solo set that defies categorization and resists any ‘singer-songwriter,’ or ‘solo acoustic’ description.

Equal parts local Canadiana and universal horror, this is a collection that has buried all the trademark Jon Brooks social commentary in a shallow, roadside grave

Delicate Cages

Jon Brooks

Delicate Cages takes its title from the Robert Bly poem, TAKING THE HANDS: Taking the hands of someone you love/You see they are like delicate cages...

Delicate Cages aims to reveal the complicit natures of good and evil, love and fear, and freedom and imprisonment. The DELICATE CAGES we live within are forms of enslavement - and not all 'cages' are necessarily bad. On his latest and most urgent and accessible collection of songs, Jon Brooks promises freedom to all who choose love over fear.

Moth Nor Rust

Jon Brooks

This is the original, 2009 solo album - NOT the newly recorded 2019 Moth Nor Rust II with The Outskirts of Approval. Moth Nor Rust (2009) is a hopeful answer to the questions raised by No Mean City and Ours And The Shepherds. In the spirit of Guthrie and Seeger, these songs offer us something greater than warning; they offer us the possibility of spiritual renewal, greater justice, love, and healing. Essentially, these solo performances celebrate all that neither moth nor rust can touch. The title is taken from Matthew 6:19 - 21.

Ours and the Shepherds

Jon Brooks

For digital song/album purchases: http://smarturl.it/cmw0wh

From No Mean City's failed neighbours, failed nations come. 2007's Ours And The Shepherds is a collection of Canadian war stories from WWI through to the current missions in Afghanistan. 13 songs inspired by, and in part about, Canadians living with the memory of war zone suffering: James Loney, Senator Romeo Dallaire, Sgt. Tommy Prince, Chaplain William Henry Davis, Frank P. Dixon, and John McRae, to name a few. Ours And The Shepherds earned a 2007 Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Best Songwriter. Penguin Eggs deemed it "a thoroughly wonderful and truly important addition to the canon of Canadian folk music."
