Produced by Ron Aniello (Barenaked Ladies, Guster, Lifehouse), Here and Now offers a lush collection of sweeping power ballads and upbeat pop tunes. The title track was inspired by the moment Carlson first held her then-newborn baby, Ruby Rose, and mused over experiences and lessons learned in her own life. Here and Now’s first single is a modern take on the Howard Jones classic “No One is to Blame,” with a guest appearance by Jones himself on vocals and piano. With songs such as “Be the One,” “First To Say Goodbye” and “Lost,” Carlson again demonstrates her enrichment as both an individual and a professional musician.
