ONAN, started February 2010, is the solo project of Sydney-based artist Kim Forbes. Kim started out playing with bands such as The Luddites, Rainbow Kiss, Amarantha, and most recently, Tortoise Cult. For the time being, ONAN is purely a musical endeavour.
Throughout 2010, ONAN has released 2 albums and an EP, with the last ('III:Metal|Porno|Space|Opera') as a dedication to fans of ONAN. 'Breaking the Fourth Wall', was released November 11th, 2011, and features guest spots by Eric Beaudin and Hugo Bonin. In 2012, ONAN released 'Our Names Will Echo Through the Ages', an EP featuring Caroline Boucher and Eric Beaudin, with all production by Joey Roach of Cold Weather Studios in Edmonton, Canada.
ONAN takes inspiration from a diverse range of musical/artistic styles and approaches, while still trying to maintain a unique identity and personality in modern music.
