While the road, she calls Home, the Wonk hails from KY & The Highlife, from Cincinnati. Though, despite where they call 'home', all members are vagabonds and misfits in their own regard.

The Wonk has been playing tunes ever since Miami band, The Curious Hair, deemed her the 'Wonk' of her high school project, The Wonky Donkeys after finding them on this thing called 'Myspace.'

Wonky Tonk has played with folks like Langhorne Slim, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Billy Prine; in America, toured with a Danish Eukele band through Europe and now, sometimes solo, in a little van named Loretta.

In 2017 Wonky Tonk was joined by a bodacious group of musicians who require 'practice juice' to create sweet, sweet music. They are The Highlife and they are handsome and kick ass.

2018 is the Year of the Wonk.
