ONA emerged into the music scene with her debut EP “Sex Rock” in early 2016. Her unique orchestral bedroom rock combines intimate soft vocals, an edgy contemporary soundscape, and poetic sensual lyrics. Mixing Mazzy Star and Lana Del Rey with Pink Floyd and Liz Phair, ONA is a kind of flower child for the Internet age. Hailing from Brooklyn, she is also an art world darling whose “extreme selfie model” images have been critically acclaimed in Artforum and shown at galleries around the world. Her first album, Lullabies for Daddy, will be released in 2017, but she’ll be previewing songs during one of her several 2016 “Selfie Tours,” wherein she travels around America Instagramming, Snapchatting, and singing and dancing for her many virtual fans in a digital celebration of love, adventure, and the lit rock lifestyle.

“If you’re not familiar with ONA’s music, buckle up…The song cooks and its uptempo, driving indie rock showcases promise that goes beyond her traditional modeling.” – Pure Volume

“There are few singers and artists who are so unique, so individual, so highly talented that they’re known by just one name. Beyonce. Picasso. Madonna. Prince. Perhaps it’s time you add another name to that list: Ona. She’s both a singer and an artist. And as you’ll see on her Instagram or hear from her songs on Spotify, she’s a singular talent. So, let’s start your weekend off right: do yourself a solid and enjoy the undeniable sexiness of her one woman self-made photoshoot.” – Playboy

“Beautifully orchestrated, featuring melodic piano lines, ferocious crashing high-hat drums, and most notably Ona’s gorgeous, breathy alto vocals…one of the better tracks I’ve heard in a while…this record will undoubtedly be making our year end list.” – Audiofemme

“Lullaby sweet vocals with a cyber soundtrack … an ‘extreme selfie model'” – Wonderland

“These self portraits, shot by the artist herself, show just how beautifully diverse Ona really is.” – Playboy

“A resonant voice in the new feminist art wave, (her) work often triumphs sex positivity by reframing the power dynamic between model and photographer and challenging the notion that provocative imagery is less than art.” – A Womans Thing

“Best title song ever.” – Jerry Saltz

“(other) porno-critical works smoothly read as “feminist,” while (her) work sits in a more uncomfortable—perhaps more honest—contemporary truth about the place of women in the art world.” – Vice
