Alright Now is David Mallett's first recording of all-original songs in six years. The long hiatus is proving worth the wait. Alright Now is the culmination of 40 years of songwriting which captures keen observations about the soulfulness of everyday life. Noel Paul Stookey, who produced the first three Mallett albums, calls songs from the new album some of Mallett's best material since 1975. The songs cover a wide range of topics and moods -- public and private, hopeful, fragile, nostalgic, bitter, loving. The album was recorded in Maine over 8 months and features Michael Burd (bass and guitar) and Susan Ramsey (violin and viola), along with Jim Doherty (drums), Robbie Coffin (guitars), Will Mallett (guitar and vocals), and Luke Mallett (vocals).
