Jonah Matranga BIOGRAPHY:

Jonah Matranga is essentially unique. His music is somewhere between
Prince, Tom Petty, The Clash, and Beyoncé, but it doesn’t really fit into
any genre. He has influenced singers and bands in several genres over the
last 20 years, from Dashboard Confessional to Deftones. He’s toured with
artists ranging from The Weakerthans to Sepultura. He’s turned up on
hip-hop records from Fort Minor and Lupe Fiasco, done a split with Frank
Turner, and been on releases by Thursday, Kimya Dawson, Deftones, and many
more. Jonah has fronted innovative hard rock bands (Far, Gratitude) made
all sorts of indie albums (onelinedrawing, New End Original, Camorra). He
was making a living doing sliding-scale and crowdfunding and crowd-sourced
patronage way before it was cool. He’s made records with budgets ranging
from $300 to $300,000. He just wrote a memoir about doing all that while
raising his daughter. He crowdfunded that, too. Jonah has played as many
house shows as he has huge festivals, and he brings the same thing
regardless of where he’s playing — a devoted fanbase, accomplished,
ambitious songwriting, an abundance of wit and honesty, and an interest in
making something new every time.
