Album Notes
the NOW is NOW story

"With all the negative metal, pity-parties and aggressive-abusive stuff that passes for rock music nowadays, the enjoyable, highly harmonic music created by Mitch Alden (principal songwriter & lead vocalist/guitarist) is a refreshing change-of-pace." - Lucky Clarke, Scribner News Service

Much like the caterpillar who rarely thinks about becoming a butterfly until he actually is one, “NOW is NOW” is a band about living in the moment. “Mitch Alden has passion! That's half the battle with any pursuit in life. This guy's sheer talent as front man for “Now is Now” will convince you, especially seeing them live. I have their CD and like it enough, but when I saw them perform last month, I was mesmerized!” comments Portland rock critic Aimsel Ponti in considering their live show.

Mitch Alden, former NYC resident turned backwoods Maine hermit, serves as the band’s lead vocalist & guitarist, while bassist Drew Wyman and drummer Neil Carroll, provide propulsion to the NOW sound’s heart throbbing rhythms. While only together since 2000, their music transcends generations. The band has been described as one which “has learned from their predecessor's mistakes, taken their feet off their monitors, abandoned the rock poses, and ditched the apathy to create a montage of rock stylings that is from Gin Blossoms to Live and Sheryl Crow to STP.”

EXCELLENT!!! I can't get enough of this group!
EXCELLENT!!!!Lyrics, music, vocals all meld together like a fine tuned machine. This group will go far. I have been following them in clubs and through their CD's. ROCK ON!

Aimsel Ponti

This record is steeped in hopeful optimism.
Mitch Alden and his band NOW is NOW is back at it with their new record, "Days of Summer" and just in time as we're deep in June and our brief window of summer opportunity is now open. This record is steeped in hopeful optimism and lots of reality checks, and I'm seriously digging the organ on the song "Haven."

Alden's voice is strong, clear and carries his message effectively. Cynics need not apply, and you may want to choose vibrant colors over black for this act, as they are an electrifying rock 'n' roll band. You may have to see NOW is NOW to become a true believer in their music, so be sure to catch them around New England. Check their web site for the full schedule.

This really feels like a solid effort from one of Maine’s best artists!
Listening to Mitch’s lyrics one can detect that beneath that cheerful exterior there may actually lurk a guy with worries like the rest of us. But a little artistic therapy—channel those woes!—works wonders. As good rock ‘n’ roll songs often do, Alden focuses a lot on love and romance. The days of summer lasted longer with someone to share them with. But that was then and now she’s gone. Or, in “Better Days,” wouldn’t breaking up be better than dealing with the way things are now? He tells his partner, Have the courage to say goodbye. In “Fall Away,” another wish-you-were-with-me song, forgiveness is asked for, apologies made. And in “Golden Leaves,” fitting that it’s the last song on the CD, a delicate acoustic melody paints a picture of an angel, the love of the singer’s life. Occasionally Mitch’s introspection takes a different, more worldly focus such as peace but told from the totally original point of view of a little girl painting a picture of the world in bright colors (“Paintbox”), or when he questions his role and direction in life (“Watch the World”).

This really feels like a solid effort from one of Maine’s best artists. With recent CD release parties from here to NY and points in between, word is getting out! Now is Now is definitely a force on the scene. If you have a chance to catch the band live, do so. But in the meantime, check out this CD! (
