JONAH MATRANGA is essentially unique. His music is somewhere in between Nick Drake, Cheap Trick and Sinead O'Connor... but not really. Over the last 15 years, he’s fronted rock bands (Far, Gratitude, New End Original) and made more solo-ish albums as onelinedrawing and simply under his name. He’s made records with budgets ranging from $300 to $300,000.
