Feeling a bit camera shy


All lyrics were written by singer, songwriter & frontman Angelo “The Glow” DiPilla. The Glow shines by offering intellectual commentary on the human condition with a mass appeal groove.

This Is Now, the debut, self-titled release by this musically seasoned band, features songs that explore the human emotions of jealousy, in "Rig The Bait;" and feeling out of place, in "Ordinary Man;" or imminent death, in "In Dread You’re Read."

The band’s music is strongly influenced by lead guitarist, Brian Hannigan, whose screaming rock & roll licks explode in "Our Love," and in the moody swells of "It’s A Good Thing."

This Is Now live shows feature concert-style solo performances from each of its members, including piano virtuoso, Phil LaBar, whose playing is prominent in "Loneliness," a creeping ballad that builds to an ominous finish; and "Music Out Of Tune," a song that relates the futility of unrequited love.

The New Jersey band is anchored by a heavy rhythm section grounded in drummer, Roy Cole’s, tasty fills and solid backbone beats; his skill is evident in tracks like "Gratefully Living," or "Memories Of A Melting Man."

This Is Now produces a full wall of sound complimented by the booming bottom of bassist, Lou Flacche; his five-string, and fretless bass work is prominent in the heartfelt, "Mathew John Mathew," and the jamming, "Changing Sides."

This Is Now creates an eclectic mix of musical stories that capture the feelings of it’s new listeners, and bcontinues ring back a steady following of loyal fans to hear crowd favorites like "Puppy Dog" and "Subliminal Seduction."

Many years of turmoil preceded the production and release of this album, but that was then, and This Is Now.
