Enation / Bio

"One of indie's premier rock bands... fast becoming known as one of the best epic rock bands around." - CD Baby / Notable Artist Reviews
Enation is an anthemic American rock band from Washington State with a Euro/Rock flare fronted by Jonathan Jackson. Their music has been featured on MTV.com, ‘One Tree Hill’, ‘General Hospital’, and more. Enation are fast becoming known as one of the premier independent rock bands in America.


Enation came onto the music scene late 2004, the year they released their first album, “Identity Theft”. The band immediately had their music featured on MTV.com and the film ‘Stephen King’s Riding The Bullet’. Since that time Enation have sold over 200,000 songs, and have been featured on 'One Tree Hill', ‘General Hospital’, A&E’s ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ and a host of other soundtracks. Enation’s song ‘Feel This (feat. Enation)’ went Top 10 on the iTunes Rock Charts (#8). Their EP, ‘The Madness Of Love’ held 5 of the Top 10 songs on the National CDBaby Rock Charts––and their recent single ‘Glorious’ was the #1 song for 4 + weeks across all genres on CDBaby, the largest distributor of independent music in the world. They were nominated to the prestigious New Music Seminar’s Top 100 ‘Artists on the Verge’ list which noted, “These are the artists in America most ready to break for 2011.” Enation also won the Grand Prize four times on the MTV sponsored international song competition, OurStage, a website that boasts over 4 million registered fans.

In October, 2011, Enation won a national competition sponsored by AOL.com from the new social media splash page web company About.Me. Over 50,000 entries were voted on by the national public to choose the Top 20 pages. Next, a panel from About.Me/AOL chose the top 10, and then finally awarded their top three pages as the grand prize winners.

Enation won the grand prize––including being featured on a NY Times Square billboard for a month in downtown Manhattan, an invitation to attend About.Me’s special event in New York City and free national exposure as one of the three ‘faces’ of the About.Me campaign throughout the year. Their new album, ‘My Ancient Rebellion’ was released October, 11th, 2011, just three days after their About.Me NY Times Billboard went up.

Enation are currently partnering with the anti-human trafficking organization NOT FOR SALE to help bring awareness to combat the growing global atrocity of modern-day slavery. They have been compared in reviews to the likes of Coldplay, Radiohead, U2, and Snow Patrol. Enation describes their music as Indie-Euro-Alternative-Folk-Rock. CDBaby, the largest distributor of independent music online in the world, took notice in their reviews saying that Enation is "One of indie's premier rock bands... fast becoming known as one of the best epic rock bands around."

Combining expanse sonically with honesty of soul lyrically, Enation have built an international fan base. With a beautifully complex and emotional catalogue of music that has earned them the reputation as one of the best independent bands in America, Enation continues to stake new ground in a world that holds endless possibilities for them.
