Wonky is so curly it is straight, so wrong it is right ... so bad it is good. Tonk is a twang found in voices and instruments or the sound your head makes after a bourbon filled night of tunes and hootenanny. And, Wonky Tonk is a Kentucky girl with a closet full of boots, a heart full of wander and a soul full of songs.
Often compared to Jenny Lewis, Lucinda Williams and Iris Dement, Wonky Tonk has played tunes alongside names like Jessica Lee Mayfield, Langhorne Slim, Joe Fletcher, Paleface, Guy Clark, Elizabeth Clark, Trampled By Turtles, Sunset Rubdown, Southern Culture on the Skids and the David Lee Mayfield Parade in towns all around the good ole US of A.
Front woman, Jasmine Poole, has a Hank III duality; sweetly naive folk music that periodically erupts into Cramps and Jello Biafra inspired punk notions. The Wonk covered over 280 cities in 2016, put out three singles, three music videos and a 7inch following her debut release Stuff We Leave Behind in November of 2015 and has no plans of stopping.
Do yourself a favor and, #getWonked.
