Album Notes
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).

the return of a true American troubador!
David is one of America's true original troubadours. In a career
spanning four decades, he has recorded 14 albums, had several hundred
covers of his songs, including the world famous "Garden Song", and
performed in clubs, concert halls and festivals across the US, Canada
and Europe. He has appeared on numerous broadcasts, including National
Public Radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion”. Known for his carefully
written, poetic offerings, his body of work has provided material for an
eclectic list of artists that includes Alison Krauss, Pete Seeger, Hal
Ketchum, Emmylou Harris, John Denver, and the Muppets.

Alright Now - his first collection of new songs in more than six years -
is the culmination of 30 years of songwriting, capturing keen
observations about the soul of everyday life. It is arguably Mallett’s
most forward-thinking collection to date, and represents a new approach
for Mallett’s song-writing. 5 STARS
