Ona, West Virginia is a small sliver of unincorporated ridges, creeks, and floodplains stretching from Route 60 up almost to the Ohio River. Ona makes songs that take place in these spaces. Bradley Jenkins and Zack Owens write about longing, resentment, searching, and waiting. Zach Johnston, Max Nolte, and Brad Goodall back them with music that pulses, buzzes, echoes, and rolls.

"All Songs Considered fans recognized this, picking Ona's single "Ides of July" as one of their favorite musical discoveries of 2015 (so far) — and for good reason. It's an expansive piece from the five-piece band, an indie-rock/alt-folk symphony that seamlessly captures a sense of wanderlust. The band's self-proclaimed "What Would Neil Young Do?" work ethic certainly lays the foundation for the song's catchiness." - Joni Deustch (A Change of Tune/Mountain Stage Radio Show)

“‘American Fiction’ is the kind of album that makes me thrilled to do my job – I had to share it with our listeners immediately. There is nothing more exciting than the spark of a new musical discovery, and Ona’s record isn’t just a spark, it’s a whole gosh darn flame.”

— Sirius/XM’s Franny Thomas
