ENATION: MUSIC BENEATH THE SURFACE Enation is an anthemic American rock band from Washington State with a Euro/Rock flare fronted by Jonathan Jackson whose first album was released in 2004. Their music has been featured on MTV.com, ‘One Tree Hill’, ‘General Hospital’, and more. Enation are fast becoming known as 'one of indie's premier rock bands.' (-CDBaby) 'The first thing people ask us if they've never heard us before is who do you sound like? Well, we like to say that it's as if U2, Radiohead, and Bob Dylan all got together for breakfast, decided to adopt a baby boy, called it Enation, and then left it to fend for itself,' drummer Richard Lee Jackson says. Jonathan Jackson, lead singer and songwriter for Enation, speaks up. 'Bands like Coldplay, U2, and Pearl Jam are great examples of artists who are dedicated to their craft but who also see their music as a vehicle for emotional and social change. In short, they are bands who have inspired us to go beneath the surface, to create songs that are not just for entertainment -- but for emotional and spiritual connection, enlightenment, and social change.' 'It's all about having integrity as an artist,' says bassist Daniel Sweatt. 'There are a lot of bands out there who are okay dwelling on the surface of things -- which is totally fine for them, and there's some good music out there doing that. But surface is not us. That's not Enation. We're looking to go deeper, to have music that's beneath the surface.' With a beautifully complex and emotional catalogue of music that has earned them the reputation as one of the premier independent rock bands in America, Enation continues to stake new ground in a world that holds endless possibilities for them.
