Listening to the music of Jonathan Brinkley is like jumping in your car, driving along an open country road, or through a tranquil forest of green. His lyrics are poetic and powerful, accompanied by beautiful guitar strums, giving a true look into the soul of a musician who is passionate about what he plays and his desire to share it with others.” - Jessy Damon, KBOO Community Radio
