Two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and founding member of both the Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash, Graham Nash returns with his first studio album of new material in seven years, titled Now, due May 19th. Now is produced by Nash and longtime touring keyboardist Todd Caldwell.
“I believe that my new album Now is the most personal one I have ever made. At this point in my life, that’s something to say,” notes Nash.
Nash will hit the road in support of Now this spring with a run of performances throughout the U.S. The tour—Sixty Years of Songs and Stories—marks the sixtieth anniversary of Nash’s first single with the Hollies, one of the leaders of the British Invasion of the 1960s, and includes multiple night residencies in New York; Chicago; Minneapolis; Alexandria, VA; Annapolis, MD and more. Additionally, in June and July Nash will revisit his west coast tour dates recently postponed due to Covid. See grahamnash.com for a list of upcoming shows and tickets.
In anticipation of the forthcoming 13-track record “Right Now” has also been released…
Nash’s remarkable body of work began the Hollies opus from 1964 to ’68. His contributions to Crosby, Stills & Nash and Déjà Vu are lightning rods embedded in our DNA, starting with “Marrakesh Express,” “Pre-Road Downs” and “Lady of the Island” from the former and “Teach Your Children” and “Our House” from the latter. Nash’s career as a solo artist took flight in 1971 with two albums further showcasing the depths of his abilities as a singer and songwriter, yielding “Chicago/We Can Change the World,” “Military Madness,” “I Used To Be A King” and “Simple Man.”
His passionate voice has long been heard in support of peace and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events. In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales. In recognition of his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II. While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also a renowned photographer and visual artist whose work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. Most recently Nash released A Life In Focus: The Photography Of Graham Nash (via Insight Editions), in which he reflects on more than fifty years of an extraordinary life in an extensive collection of personal photographs and artistic stills.
