New Track Every Monday at 5PM CST

"I'm not sure who Jonathan Burks reminds me of most; he has bits of the disturbed humor of Daniel Johnston, a smidgen of the talking blues of Lou Reed, and just a hint of the sad poetry of Townes Van Zandt. I’ve absorbed all of his albums and EP’s, written about him on the site and had him play my Songs:Illinois House Concert Series and I still have a hard time grasping his approach to songwriting, performing, and writing. But that I keep trying and keep returning to his music says something about the unusual and compelling artist that is Jonathan Burks."
