When John Czerwinski (drummer and co-founder of Ozona) was looking to form his own original band, he met Ed (on guitar), but the two couldn't seem to find a long term bass player. At the same time Al (also on guitar) was looking to re-fit his band Soup..so,an "opportunity" was born where Soup could feature Al on guitar and Ed on bass, and Ozona could feature Ed on guitar and Al on bass.
So it was to be that two different bands with the same players (by switching lead and bass guitars) was born. Together they offer a two different original bands with styles that compliment each other and are sure to please any crowd!
The 2011 debut album, Just Add Water, won Indie-Ville Reggae Album of the Year - Nashville, TN. On October 23rd 2015, their sophomore album, Life Worth Livin, debuted at #5 on the iTunes Top Reggae Album Chart. The band was featured in Irie Magazine : Cali Edition (November), scoring their own "Respect” multi-page write up; additionally, the title track was featured as The Pier’s “Mp3 Leak of the Week” and is being spun on a number of traditional and internet radio stations. The prolific crew has already made it back to the workshop, recently hitting the studio with Ted Bowne of Passafire. The single, "Sit Around ft. Zach Fowler (Sun-Dried Vibes)" is set for release on June 23rd 2017 and paired with a nationwide tour hitting New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and a long list of other major markets.
The OGN live show is turning heads all over. Embarking their funky-reggae-party onto Train's Sail Across The Sun Cruise (Tampa, FL - Costa Maya, Mexico) in February of 2017, the band teamed up with Michael Franti and Spearhead, Arrested Development, Natasha Beddingfield, and more. The notable Reggae Rise Up Festival in St. Petersburg, FL added Of Good Nature to the already stacked bill through their Artist Discovery Series in early 2017, along with Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads, Iration, Steel Pulse, The Green and MANY more.
