He worked with Dean & Britta's project of scoring songs "to accompany Warhol's silent film portraits he shot from 1964 to 1966 at his New York City studio The Factory."
LaMarca co-founded Primary Records with his brother Angelo LaMarca in 2011 in Brooklyn, New York. On the label is LaMarca's band The Building: a group spawned from his Youngstown roots, including his brother Angelo, wife Megan, and other long time collaborators. LaMarca stated that the The Building is "getting ready to release their record The Swooshy Businessman".
LaMarca has toured supporting St. Vincent, The Building, Gym Deer, Pony of Good Tidings, Dean Wareham, Dean & Britta, Spoon, and JBM.
Jonah’s impressive use of extended techniques including circular breathing, multi-phonics and almost impossibly nimble vocalization owes a debt to the Chicago saxophone legacy, but his devotion to a quirky almost vocal style places him in new territory for the solo saxophone. His unique approach to the baritone saxophone draws inspiration from the unadorned voices of Appalachian Music and lo-fi musicians like Bill Callahan. He has meticulously constructed a world of warm memories remembered in a cold present, as he melds the evocative nature of folk music with the chilling power of experimentalism.
