Who We Are
Ignation is: bassist/singer-songwriter, Zac Myatt, guitarists, Justin Clark & Josiah Myatt, and drummer, Matt La Regina. The band blends various styles of rock with overtones of funk, fusion, and pop sensibility. With diverse drums and bass grooves, classic yet experimental guitar work, and pop-rock/soul vocals; Ignation explores the parameters of human condition and divine love through their lyrics.
The group was initially formed by the Myatt brothers in the Autumn of 2010. The two had found themselves collaborating on new material while exiting the throws of a dissolving (previous) band. In order to continue, a new project had to be started. While overhearing their youngest brother, Aaron, one suggested, "Why don't we try the drummer two rooms over?" The three jammed and stumbled over a unique collision of musical textures. By Spring of 2012, they had found themselves with a name and an original repertoire. In the summer of 2013, Zac, Josiah, & Aaron recorded the band's first EP, entitled, 'Before We Start'. In late January of 2014, Aaron exited the group; leaving an opening on drums. Ben Bushen played drums for the band throughout most of 2014. In mid-June of 2015, Zac and Josiah were reunited with childhood friend, Khafra, who filled in as the band's drummer for the rest of 2015 into 2016. Finally, by late summer of 2016, the band was joined by two new members, Matt and Justin, solidifying the position on drums and adding lead guitar. With the band's sound now expanded and reaching new heights, Ignation continues deeper into their passion as times change.
