Brothers and actors Jonathan Jackson and Richard Lee Jackson formed the music group that came to be known as Enation along with friends Daniel Sweatt (bass), Luke Galeotti (guitar) and Michael Galeotti (keyboard). Jonathan, the band's frontman, plays guitar and vocals while Richard plays drums. Enation has since built an international fan base.
"Ride," Enation's first single from their 2004 debut independent album, Identity Theft, was featured as the theme song to Riding the Bullet, a Stephen King thriller which also stars Jonathan Jackson. The band later released two more independent albums in 2007, Soul & Story: Volume One and Where the Fire Starts.
During the time Michael Galeotti was married to actress Bethany Joy Lenz, who played Haley James Scott on the CW television drama One Tree Hill, Lenz re-recorded Enation's song "Feel This" for use in the fifth season finale of the series. After the episode aired the song became a top 10 song on iTunes rock charts. The band also made a cameo appearance on the show, playing Feel This and the title track from their 2008 album World In Flight.
Also in 2008, Enation combined two previously recorded rock records "Identity Theft" and "Where the Fire Starts" into one compilation album, Falling Into Sounds: The Early Sessions 2004-2007.
