Jon Brooks' No One Travels Alone - A Pre-Release Review by Kerry Doole 


A songwriter with a rare gift for the poetic, Jon Brooks also possesses a ruggedly virile voice that is the perfect delivery vehicle for these well-crafted songs. They are connected by the corona (circular)  form, in which the last line of each song is the first line of the following song, and Brooks pulls off this feat with impressive ease. On "Proxima B," he namechecks such inspirations as Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Al Tuck, and Mary Margaret O'Hara, and this compelling album does them justice   - Kerry Doole
