Alston Live has a happy relationship with South Wales (remember One Mark and  A Frank from Newport last year?). Well this year’s treat from the principality is The Now. The average age of the band is 21 and their cutting edge look and feel falls in line with their sound, cool, current and highly charged!

The Now’s inspiration comes from an eclectic mix of music and musicians who include Chuck Berry and The Police right through to Kasabian and Catfish and the Bottlemen, however these are just inspirations and not to be confused with how the band sounds. Vocal influences include Kelly Jones and Ryan ‘’Van’’ McCann. read more…
