Title - All. Right. Now.
Artist - Satsang

For those unaware, Satsangs soulful, reggae-infused folk-rock brought their last album to #1 on Billboards Reggae Chart, with 15 million Spotify streams, and saw them share the stage with the likes of Michael Franti and Nahko & Medicine for the People.

Now, on their new album, the just released All. Right. Now. (via Side One Dummy Records), front man Drew McManus is found reconnecting with his Montana roots and exploring a whole new palette of sounds, drawing on classic country and modern Americana.

The performances are broad and spacious, reflecting the soaring mountains that surrounded the band while they were recording.

It is a lush, organic collection fueled by acoustic guitars, fiddle, and pedal steel; a warm, inviting record that hints at everything from Uncle Tupelo and The Jayhawks to Gregory Alan Isakov and The Head and the Heart.

Inspired by the land and by his role as a father, All. Right. Now. is a joyful, rustic collection all about letting go and living in the moment.

7. Malachi
8. Back Around (ft. G. Love)

10. Love
11. To Last

Opening on the lush, low key orchestrations of From And I Go and the free flowing melodies of the twanging title track All. Right. Now. they back those up seamlessly with the earnest mid-tempo ballad Answer Was Yes, the rhythmic country rap of This Place (ft. Trevor Hall), and then both the Caribbean hipsway of Im The One and the low slung rocker Further This Goes.

Up next is the upbeat, fiddle-imbued Malachi and the absolutely magnificent Americana of Back Around (ft. G. Love), with the album rounding out on the soft drum-led shuffle of Ill Try, the mid-tempo sing-along Love, coming to a close on the pure gossamer flow of To Last.

McManus produced the album himself, and while the songs are certainly honest and deeply personal, they were written in a spiritual language that taps into something far more universal; something inherent in the human condition that binds us as brothers and sisters on a shared journey to find our place in this world.

Grounding himself in a dedicated mixed-martial-arts practice, McManus sees no inherent contradiction between fighting and music, which both require patience, endurance, and a willingness to immerse yourself completely into practice.

As a father and a husband, McManus is more committed than ever to taking care of his mind, body, and soul and to making the most of his limited time.

When you are dealt a tough hand, you can either get bitter or you can get better, says McManus. You can blame your upbringing for everything and complain about what happened to you, or you can choose to believe that everything happened for you, to step into your power and become the person you want to be.

In Montana, that is precisely what McManus has done, turning his dreams into reality in a place that, some days, feels more like Heaven than Earth. My wife, my kids, Montana, they are all one thing to me now, says McManus. They are home.
