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 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.
"I had met #JonathanJackson earlier this fall when I was shooting second-unit work on the set of one of his music videos. I wanted to work with him again but on my own terms. This image is from a recent personal shoot here in Nashville. We had a great time and it was nice to be in the studio to get out from the cold for once. You have to take the opportunities you are given and make the opportunities that aren't there." As told to RS by photographer @HollisBennett
