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 lyrics, uplifting energy and musicianship, packed into a potent blend of alternative, pop, rock, soul, and reggae. Ever evolving, OGN incorporates different instruments, backgrounds, genres and styles, creating extraordinary and excitingly passionate music, expressed on the stage and on the record.
Of Good Nature supported Michael Franti & Spearhead on the “Good Day For A Good Day” World Tour in Fall 2021, performing in amphitheaters across the United States. In July 2021, the band joined the Dirty Heads Orlando Vacation lineup with Dirty Heads, Sublime With Rome, and Hirie. In November 2021, the band sailed on the inaugural Soulshine at Sea Cruise supporting Michael Franti & Spearhead, Allen Stone, Fitz and The Tantrums, Niko Moon, and more. OGN also has been invited three times to perform on Sail Across The Sun Cruise with headliner Train.
On January 7th, 2022, OGN released “Looking for It (Light Up Remix)”, teaming up with Tropidelic and Little Stranger for an alternative/reggae/hip-hop collaboration. March 2022 saw the release of “Carolina Blue (Acoustic)”, pairing with Simplified and its lead singer Clee Laster who lent vocals and helped pen the original, which was released on 2020’s Everything Turns Gold. July 2021, Of Good Nature released their Cover EP: four cover songs innovated to pay tribute to classic hit sing-a-longs such as “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers, and “Valerie” originally by The Zutons, iconized by Amy Winehouse. 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 in Charlottesville, VA, and reached both the iTunes and Billboard Top Reggae Charts.
Additionally in 2020, the band was selected by Sierra Nevada as a featured artist for its “Doing Big Things” promotion and partnered with RoofAbove Charity raising donations through live-stream performances to help the homeless in the band's hometown of Charlotte, NC.
2022 looks to be OGN’s busiest yet, with plans to release several singles and two EPs, serve as direct support for Michael Franti & Spearhead, perform at multiple festivals including Summer Camp, Sunny Days, and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, and our own headline tour in the fall.
Of Good Nature is commonly celebrated by fans for their unique style and sound, implemented by technical drumming, soulful vocal melodies, and brass trombone - original to only this group of prolific songwriters and their creative process. OGN’s band members include Cameron Brown (guitar, vocals), Brandon Hucks (trombone), David Hamilton Jr. (drums), and Clifton Bundick IV (bass).
