Umbrella Weather Amazon Print
Jonathan Warren’s impressive debut collection, Umbrella Weather, offers us a wonderful range of moods, subjects, and emotional landscapes that all thread together like songs within an artful and dynamic album. From heartbreak to whimsy, family legacy to a self-effacing look at the poet’s own place in history when he is dead and gone from this realm, when there is nothing left of him but these fine and heartfelt words. —Christian Winn, Idaho Writer in Residence

Warren gifts and guides—a journey worth taking. —John J McKenna, author of Sessions
Jonathan Warren is a thirty-seven year old musician and teacher. He and his band, Jonathan Warren and the Billygoats tour nationally and are currently underway recording their fifth album (to see tour schedule and learn more visit http://jonathanwarrenmusic.com) Sometimes his words surface as poetry and are published in magazines such as Confrontation, Z-Composition, Blackheart, Flash Fiction Magazine, The Write Room, Entropy, Toucan Magzine, Everyday Weirdness, and other magazine. Two of his songs have been featured in Pauly Shore’s documentary “I’m still here.” He was selected to read his poetry at Death Rattle Writer’s Festival in October 2016. Jonathan is inspired by rainfall and sunsets and finding quiet places where no one else will find him. Jonathan’s favorite color is orange, not bright like the fruit but burnt like autumn, and his lucky number is two. He has a recurrent dream about flying and is convinced that he will one day; that is flying around like Superman, not in an airplane. Not that he has anything against airplanes, or flying in them.
