Jonah Matranga is perhaps one of the most influential, yet underappreciated, forces in the evolution of post-punk/emo music. Jonah Matranga's first notable contribution to the scene came in the form of a band known as Far. They released 3 full length albums, listed below:

Album: Quick
Release Date: June 2, 1995

Album: Tin Cans With Strings To You
Release Date: April 23, 1996

Album: Water and Solutions
Release Date: March 10, 1998

My personal favorite is Water and Solutions, in which the vocals and general sound seem to be far more refined than its predecessors. After Far broke up, Jonah moved on to a solo career, which was called, simply enough, onelinedrawing.

The music was rejected by many fans of Far for sounding too "emo" or wimpy. Many songs were acoustic, and they seemed to have a far more introspective tone. Under the moniker of onelinedrawing, Jonah Matranga has released a slew of EP's, with more most likely in the works.

Also worth mentioning is Jonah's role as frontman in a shortlived band called New End Original, who released one album, called Thriller. New End's sound could be best described as the "happy middle" between the often aggressive style of Far and the generally more downbeat style of onelinedrawing.
