People Magazine (People.com) recently conducted an interview, along with an exclusive debut stream of Enation's new EP, "Blame-shifter". via People.com:
Jonathan Jackson and his band, Enation, are back!
The band, who have been making music together for over a decade, knew exactly the direction they wanted to take their next EP, Blame-shifter.
"We wanted to tackle making an edgier, rock album and just kind of wanted to give more of a feel of what it's like when we perform live," Jackson, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "That was the musical angle. The lyrical angle, Blame-shifter, just came from a book I was reading that I was very inspired by. It's just the idea of instead of being defensive and shifting the blame to just accepting it."
ENATION'S new Blame-shifter EP Debuted #22 on Billboard Heatseekers Chart. "It's a first for us," drummer Richard Lee Jackson says. "We didn't expect that to happen. The main thing is, we love that our fans are digging the music."
The strong debut comes on the heels of their "Blame-shifter US Summer Tour" kick-off at Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den in Connecticut. The band will tour in select cities in the US, primarily in the Northeast and South throughout the summer.
Another reason for the EP moving up the charts is certainly the reaction to lead singer Jonathan's rendition of "Unchained Melody (Live From Grand Ole Opry)". The emotional live performance has almost 3 million views on YouTube and is already become a fan favorite at their concerts.

UK Songwriting Magazine Concert Review called ENATION "a musical tour de force", and gave a glowing review of the band's recent sold-out concert in Nashville, TN at 3rd & Lindsley.
"The three-piece quickly demonstrate their impressive musicianship. With some of the dynamic power of Muse, they pack a sonic punch... The charismatic Jackson is an electric frontman... His passion and spirituality is evident from the start and, together with his two bandmates, he has formed a musical tour de force. The people may have turned up to see a television star, but they stayed to hear an extremely talented musician and his band blow the roof off."
ENATION kicked off their Radio Cinematic US Summer Tour in high fashion, playing to an enthusiastic sold-out crowd in Nashville, TN at 3rd & Lindsley. More sold out or venue packed concerts have followed around the US in Charlotte, Columbus, Pittsburgh, and Houston. The band is currently on a six-week tour supporting their new album Radio Cinematic and their new single, 'Cinematic' (released through Loud and Proud Records and Sony/RED). They hit the road and are taking advantage of lead singer Jonathan Jackson's summer break from filming his popular TV show. The concert in Nashville was also filmed for a multi-camera live DVD, set to be released sometime after the Radio Cinematic Summer Tour is finished.
