This event is all ages
Jonah Matranga is essentially unique. He's somewhere in between Nick Drake, The Clash, Prince and Bjork -- and nothing like any of them. Over the last 20 years, he’s been appreciated by listeners and critics alike for his diverse music -- and his overall approach to making and sharing it. He's fronted rock bands (Far, Gratitude, New End Original), along with making many solo albums as onelinedrawing and simply under his name.
Jonah has worked with, toured with and inﬂuenced artists ranging from The Weakerthans to Frank Turner to Sepultura. He’s been featured on hip-hop records from Fort Minor ('Where'd You Go?) and Lupe Fiasco (The Instrumental), as well as being featured on releases by Thursday, Deftones and many more bands from all corners of the music world.
Jonah has played as many house shows as he has huge festivals, and he brings the same thing regardless of where he’s playing — honesty, ambitious songwriting, weird wit and an interest in making something new and different every time.
