Enation was formed in Battle Ground, Washington in 2002 by brothers Jonathan Jackson (vocals, guitar) and Richard Lee Jackson (drums), along with friends Daniel Sweatt (bass), Luke Galeotti (guitar), and Michael Galeotti (keyboards). Both Jackson brothers had flourishing acting careers in film and television going when the band officially formed, and while it is tempting to view their musical aspirations as an adjunct, both view acting and playing music under the same creative umbrella: as a way to tell a story. The group released a debut independent album, Identity Theft, in 2004, basing their sound on the anthemic pop template of bands like U2 and Radiohead, with Jonathan writing most of the material and serving as the frontman. Two more independent albums followed in 2007, Soul & Story: Vol. 1 and Where the Fire Starts, with a third, World in Flight, arriving a year later in 2008. That same year the albums Identity Theft and Where the Fire Starts were blended into a single package and re-released as Falling Into Sounds: The Early Sessions 2004-2007. My Ancient Rebellion was issued in 2011. By 2014's Radio Cinematic, released by Loud-N-Proud Records, Enation was down to a trio, with the Jackson brothers and bassist Sweatt remaining. ~ Steve Leggett
