Of Good Nature

Of Good Nature (OGN) incites and unites listeners with a fusion-friendly approach to today’s music, uncovering a highly accessible sound that concentrates on positive and feel-good lyrics, uplifting energy and technical musicianship, packed into a potent blend of alternative, soul, world, rock, groove, and reggae. OGN’s unique style and ever-evolving sound is implemented through soulful vocal melodies, technical drumming, and brass instruments, creating extraordinary and excitingly passionate music that is expressed on the stage and on the record. 

In May 2023, OGN released “Don’t Wanna Give Up” featuring Shwayze, achieving over 100k streams in its first two weeks, and was added to Spotify-curated playlist Beach Vibes, as well as other major platform playlists. In Fall 2022, OGN released the first of its double-EP concept, Input, containing the hit singles “Open Your Mind", "I'll Fly", “Save the World”, and “Don’t Give Up” featuring Mihali of Twiddle and “Looking For It” featuring Little Stranger and Tropidelic. 

In 2023, the band performed live for the fourth time on 'Sail Across the Sun 2023', Train's destination music festival at sea, joining Train, Fitz and The Tantrums, G. Love, Travie McCoy, and more. Also, the band performed across the United States on the national Spring Fling Tour with Shwayze. OGN has shared the stage and supported other acts such as Michael Franti & Spearhead, Twiddle, Allen Stone, Blues Traveler, and Dirty Heads.

OGN served as direct support for Michael Franti & Spearhead in 2021 and 2022, performing in amphitheaters across the east coast and midwest. OGN performed at the Summer Camp Music Festival, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Fall Badfish at Nelson’s Ledges Quarry Park, and Dirty Heads Summer Vacation Festival.

Previous releases include the self-produced Cover EP (2021), led by sing-along favorite “Valerie” feat. The Elovaters, and “Lovely Day”, originally by Bill Withers. Full length albums Everything Turns Gold (2020) and Timeless (2019) were recorded with A-list producer Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, Foster The People) at White Star Sound Studios in Charlottesville, VA, each reaching the iTunes and Billboard Charts.

The band was previously selected by Sierra Nevada as a featured artist for its 'Doing Big Things’ promotion, and partnered with RoofAbove Charity to raise donations through live-stream performances to help those in need in the band's hometown of Charlotte NC.
