MO LOWDA & THE HUMBLE // ONA

<< @ Sleeping Village >>

Mo Lowda began with 3 high school kids. Those kids all ended up at the same college in Philadelphia, PA where other kids wanted them to play at their basement parties all the time. So, they did. All the time. They are no longer kids. Two full-length albums (2013, 2018) and an EP (2016) later, Mo Lowda & the Humble now average 100+ tour dates a year, nationally and internationally, including festivals like Firefly, Peach Fest, Mountain jam, and more. When they are not on stage, they are laughing. Sometimes even when they are on stage, they are laughing. The band is slated to release their third full-length in early 2020.

With a true brotherhood that comes from growing up together, indie rock band Ona merge all their musical history for their second album, Full Moon, Heavy Light.

The band shares its name with a small town just outside of their home base of Huntington, West Virginia. All five band members of Ona were raised in the area, with a couple of guys knowing each other since grade school. By tapping into their own social circles, the current line-up took hold in 2016: Brad Goodall (keys), Bradley Jenkins (vocals/​guitar), Zach Johnston (bass), Max Nolte (drums), and Zack Owens (guitar). The band agreed on their name after Jenkins happened to wear an Ona Little League ball cap to rehearsal.

Recorded at various intervals over the course of 18 months, Full Moon, Heavy Light showcases a band that could easily deliver an arena show while still retaining the sincerity of the ​‘70s songwriters in their parents’ record collections. Wistful songs like ​“Summer Candy” and ​“Young Forever” are at once timeless and contemporary. The band says that they aimed to make a record that’s perfect for intensive listening on headphones as well as mood music for dinner parties with friends. The optimistic streak that runs throughout the project is both genuine and disarming.
