Jonathan Townley

Singer songwriter Jonathan Townley stands on a rural road in Casco Township, near grandfather George Fleming’s farm, where he wrote and recorded songs for his new CD.

SOUTH HAVEN — When Kalamazoo musician Jonathan Townley wanted to record his first album, he could have chose a recording studio close to home, but instead he turned west toward a small rural area just north of South Haven, in Casco Township.

It is an area Townley knows well and whose surroundings and people have influenced his original music.
