The Right Now (#104)

The Right Now plays soul music, and soul music is all about feeling; not style, not fashion, but emotion. The band's new album Carry Me Home, set to be released on March 3, 2010, lives within the four walls erected by the arresting lead vocalist Stefanie Berecz, the stellar song crafting of Brendan O'Connell, the spot-on horns and layers of back-up vocals, and a solid bedrock of rhythm.
The Right Now continually tours the country, converting listeners to a brand of R&B that is simultaneously classic and contemporary. [28 minutes] Closed Captioning
