The Story

As the driving force behind Onelindrawing, Jonah Matranga had spent years handcrafting his confessional pop songs-often recording them at home and selling his records on his website-until Jade Tree signed the 34-year-old songwriter as not only a solo act, but as the leader of the now defunct rock band New End Original. He had some chops, too, but it seemed just a bit off as his visions on love both lost and found sounded best in small basements, not huge arenas. Personal to the touch, it's not difficult to see why Matranga has amassed a cult following that includes everyone from Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba to Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, playing his songs like they were touching letters he creased in small squares before passing them along to his adoring fans. Listen closely: the story of your life may be buried in the folds.


Where Are They Now?
Currently singing and playing guitar in Gratitude, Jonah also continues to perform as a solo artist playing new material as well as all the hits from both Far and onelinedrawing.
