Jasmine Lorraine â€œWonky Tonkâ€ Poole grew up in the hard scrabble portion of the American heartland. Kentucky, to be precise. Her world of loss and longing is familiar terrain for lovers of country, bluegrass and folk music but, just as Kentucky can be viewed as a bridge between north and south, Wonkâ€™s music blends elements of Indie/Alternative rock with old school country. Itâ€™s hard to separate the wonk from the tonk. Nor should you try.
Her eleven song debut release Stuff We Leave Behind deals with the necessity of moving on at critical points in your life. Stuff that once seemed important must be cast aside, ex-lovers relegated to the shadows. â€œHeartbreak makes the jukebox playâ€, she was once told. Her song titles reflect her wandering spirit and a fascination with time and place. â€œCleveland.â€ â€œDenmark.â€ â€œTennessee.â€ â€œMontague Road.â€ A veteran troubadour at such a tender age, Wonk has toured Europe with the same restless drive as her native Northern Kentucky.
