Ona On Mountain Stage
Ona makes its first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live in Charleston, W.Va. A rock quintet that found its start in a sliver of unincorporated Appalachia called Ona, All Songs Considered listeners picked Ona's single "Ides O July" as one of their "Favorite Musical Discoveries Of 2015 — So Far," and for good reason.
Singers Bradley Jenkins and Zack Owens write about longing, resentment, searching and waiting, and the band's self-proclaimed "What Would Neil Young Do?" work ethic lays the foundation for their signature blue-collar indie-rock sound. Max Nolte plays drums, along with keyboard player Brad Goodall and bassist Zack Johnston. Ona's latest release, American Fiction, was produced by Bud Carroll.
