A B O U T
For Now is a quintet led by vocalist and composer Isabel Crespo. Wandering carefully between genres, For Now performs compositions influenced by modern jazz, contemporary classical music, visual art, and poetry. Fueled by an unending curiosity, they explore the personal and the political, turning complex situations into musical vignettes.
Their debut album, Elsewhere, was released with national acclaim in 2018. Their sophomore album, The Turning, will be released in July 2019, and will feature introspective exploration of themes including the (de)construction of self, the importance of recognizing intersectionality, and the pursuit of inspiration.
Each member of For Now is a skilled musician and composer in their own right, and brings openness and versatility to the project. Their performances are dynamic, carefully weaving improvisations and composed material, and striving for new ways of unfolding the personal experience.
