Jonah Matranga and his art are essentially unclassifiable. His music lies somewhere in between Elliott Smith, U2 and Cheap Trick, but it doesnt really fit into any genre. Over the last 15 years, he's fronted hard rock bands (Far, Gratitude) and made classic indie re- cords (onelinedrawing, New End Original). Hes made records with budgets ranging from $300 to $300,000. Jonah has influenced artists from Deftones to Blink-182, but he sounds nothing like either of them. Hes toured with artists from The Weakerthans to Sepultura, and has respect from people all over the music world.
