The Story Band

The Story was an early 1990s folk-rock duo composed of Jonatha Brooke and Jennifer Kimball.


Jonatha Brooke and Jennifer Kimball first met in 1981 while freshmen at Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts. Originally called simply "Jonatha and Jennifer", they performed regularly throughout the Boston area until graduation, at which time Brooke started working in a dance company and Kimball went to a publishing firm.[1]

In 1989 the duo recorded a demo, "Over Oceans", and were quickly signed by Green Linnet Records. They changed their name to The Story, and their debut album Grace in Gravity appeared in 1991. Elektra Records then snapped up the band, reissuing the album a year later. Angel in the House followed in 1993, but a year later The Story dissolved.

Known for their ethereal and dissonant vocal harmonies, both Brooke and Kimball have gone on to critically acclaimed solo careers. Although The Story's work has been highly regarded by critics and fans alike, both Brooke and Kimball have individually downplayed the band's work.
