A band of Georgians that bring elements of pop and folk music in to their rock and roll to create a familiar sound that will get you on your feet and on the road.

Biography

After having spun multiple webs of friendships, Poanna officially formed in 2008 and joined together five guys that share common pasts as well as common goals for what the future may hold. This Southern Pop Rock band combines insightful and catchy lyrics with folky music that reminds you of what your southern parents used to listen to. Of course, the modern edge makes the music enjoyable for the kids of those southern parents.

Based in Columbus, Poanna derived its name from a type of grass that thrives in the winter and dies in the spring. Surrounded by deadness all winter, it’s the only pretty green plant you’ll see, and it brings hope of life in the midst of dreary times. Alike, Poanna originates their songs from the inspirations of life, truth, God, friendship and community, and girls. All of which stir feelings of life and growth and understanding.

All five members of Poanna have crossed multiple paths while serving their churches, doing mission trips, and meeting through mutual friends. Since forming, the band has recorded an seven song, EP titled "Ten 10'' and is in the process of recording another album. Their musical inspirations range from legendary musicians such as Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and The Beatles to current day bands like Wilco, The Counting Crows, and even Beyonce. If you’re looking for Nickelback or Celine Dion inspired music, look elsewhere. However, take your time to listen if you enjoy being reminded of riding in your car, experiences from growing up, front porches, really noisy summer nights, and waffle house.
