PAST EVENT: JONATHA BROOKE SONGWRITER RETREAT

"There's always a glimmer, something unique about every particular voice. Everyone has a story. It's about getting to that story and getting the clichés out of the way. It's so brave of these people. I cry every time on the first day because I know how terrified I am to sing a new song for someone, even Pat [Jonatha’s husband]. I'm the worst - paranoid, insecure and self-conscious - until I've sung it in a room quaking with my stomach in knots. If I get through it and it feels better, it might be a keeper. It doesn't get easier." - Jonatha
