Enation is an American indie rock band formed in Battle Ground, Washington, in 2002. In 2014 they changed their official name to Jonathan Jackson + Enation and released their fourth studio album "Radio Cinematic" through Loud & Proud Records. The band currently resides in Nashville, TN.
Brothers and actors Jonathan Jackson and Richard Lee Jackson originally formed the music group that came to be known as Enation along with their good friend Daniel Sweatt (bass) in 2002. Jonathan, the band's frontman, sings, plays guitar, piano, and writes most of the songs, while Richard plays drums and percussion with Daniel Sweatt on bass.
"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 more independent albums between 2007-2011, Soul & Story: Volume One, Where the Fire Starts, ", "World In Flight", and "My Ancient Rebellion", among other live albums and specialty EP's.
Bethany Joy Lenz, who played Haley James Scott on the CW television drama One Tree Hill 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.
