“Wonk has also played Cincinnati's Midpoint Music Festival in 2008 and 2009, as well as the 2008 Brink Music Festival. She was nominated the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best New Artist in 2008 and Best Folk Artist in 2009.”

"She does. A natural songwriter, Wonky’s solo performances quickly earned her a 2008 Cincinnati Entertainment Award nomination for New Artist of the Year. "

"Covington-based Wonky Tonk started out as a solo project for guitar and banjo player Jasmine Poole to spread her quirky sense of folk music"

“And also, I have to mention a great local singer/songwriter that goes by the name Wonky Tonk. She was recently nominated for a Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best New Artist, check her out some more here.”

“According to her Web site, Poole describes her genre as folk/indie/bluegrass. She began using the name Wonky Tonk in March and is the sole member of the group. Quickly attaining many shows and achieving much notoriety, Poole sees this opportunity as a dream come true.”

“Wonky Tonk makes sweetly naive Folk music that has the off kilter lilt of Bjork raised in the Midwest and brought up on Woody Guthrie songs. ”

“It’s the kind of enthusiasm that, as organizers of the event, we dreamt about when putting it together. (Poole, by the way, played a great acoustic set at Mexican restaurant Javier’s to a very receptive audience, despite the early start time.)”
