For more than a decade, Jonah has been holding court over Portland’s Brit-pop scene. Their catchy, anthemic songs have appeared on Dawson’s Creek and the Ghost Whisperer. They’ve shared bills with Silversun Pickups and Youth Group. On their latest release, Jonah has produced a mature, inviting, and emotional album that delights with subtlety and substance. The Wonder and the Thrill has plenty of both, and leans toward the sensitivity found in the music of Travis, Crowded House, and even Coldplay’s first album. Check out this solid recording of great songs performed with passion and precision.
