Recently the AOL owned splash web page company About.Me created a national competition to find the new ‘face’ of their company. Enation was one of the top 20 pages. A panel from About.Me/AOL then chose the top 10 and awarded the top three pages as the grand prizewinners.
Enation won!!! This means Enation will be featured on a NY Times Square billboard for a month. They will also get free national exposure as one of the three ‘faces’ of the About.Me campaign.
Eeeeeeeeek, I’m so excited!!! Anyway, I digress…back to the reason I am writing this post today. I want to tell you all a little more about the fabulously talented band Enation and you will understand why they would/should get noticed:
Brothers and Hollywood actors Jonathan Jackson and Richard Lee Jackson, who have been acting in film and television for over 18 years alongside some of the biggest names in entertainment such as Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Michelle Pfeiffer, Calista Flockhart and Ben Kingsley, formed the music group that came to be known as Enation. Enation’s lead singer Jonathan Jackson is a 4-time Emmy winner and he joined drummer Richard Lee Jackson in a People Magazine World’s Sexiest Men issue. After Jonathan and Richard had played together for years they decided to invite their good friends Daniel Sweatt, Michael Galeotti and most recently Luke Galeotti to join.
“Ride,” Enation’s first single from their 2004 debut independent album, Identity Theft, was featured prominently as the theme song to Riding the Bullet, a Stephen King thriller which also stars the band’s frontman, Jonathan Jackson.
The band later released two more independent albums in 2007, Soul & Story: Volume One and Where the Fire Starts. In 2008 Enation released their breakout album, “World In Flight”, and combined the previous two rock records (“Identity Theft” and “Where the Fire Starts”) into one compilation album entitled, “Falling Into Sounds: The Early Sessions 2004-2007″.
Recent Performances for standing room only crowds greet Enation headlining live at the hottest spots in Hollywood, Music City, the Big Apple, and the Great Northwest.
Their new album, MY ANCIENT REBELLION, released October 11th 2011. It debuted at #113 on the national iTunes Alternative Charts, right near bands like Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Radiohead, The Black Keys, Green Day, and Muse.
Watch the Go behind the scenes & inside the making of ‘My Ancient Rebellion‘ (featuring photo’s by Lori Jane Photography), Enation’s highly anticipated new album. Lead singer Jonathan Jackson discusses everything from the process of making the album, to the band’s accomplishmets as an independent band, as well as Enation’s partnership with the Global non-profit anti-human trafficking organization Not For Sale.
“We’ve worked with other photographers over the years as a band, but Lori Jane delivered the most dynamic, artistic and identity capturing images we’ve ever had. She was very prepared, had a vision for the shots but was easy to work with collaboratively. Lori Jane has a gift, and we are blessed to have her eye looking through the lens and capturing that unique perspective for us. Highly recommended is an understatement.”
