Ona (meaning wave, fire, woman, etc. in various languages) is a melodic modern rock band that mixes all of the right ingredients: seamless vocals, blazing guitar hooks, a roaring rhythm section, and a penchant for creating songs with time-stopping intensity. With such comparisons as The Stone Temple Pilots and U2, Jeff Buckley and John Mayer, Ona combines the ecclectic musical backgrounds of it's members to create a powerful sonic experience both in your headphones and live on stage.
After just a year, Ona was ready for the studio. Ona in the summer of 2005 spent three months in Victoria, B.C. with producer Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, Db Clifford) recording their full length CD, "Subject to Change." Impressively mature for a freshman effort, Subject to Change demonstrates a sense of identity and energy that raises the bar for the next rock movement.
Ona has played energetic shows throughout California and has devoted time for several charity events in an effort to give back to the community that sustains them. Their fan base is insanely dedicated- some might say fanatical- and think nothing of traveling several hours for the chance to see them play. Shows at The Roxy, House of Blues and the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles were all full of devoted Ona followers, aptly named, the "Army of Ona".
Through verve and belief in their music, Ona aims to revive the importance of authentic human connection in popular culture.
