Folk has definitely shown itself to have a strong staying power, weaving in and out of alternative and pop eras alike. These days, it’s been commercialized to a degree many would never have expected. This said, there’s still heart left to follow in so many artists. For Now is a song that comes at a height of many similar contemporaries. Chris Ho doesn’t however walk in line with the rest waiting for his due. He strides confidently with a sense of class attached to his charmingly influenced roots.
With a beat that you can walk to and a melody that knows when to peak in and when to duck out, this song is certain to inspire adventurous days in the outdoors for young people yearning to enjoy any spare moment they can find. But Chris Ho doesn’t stop at a satisfyingly cute song. There’s energy put into the guitar and the intermittent touches of strings that dance on the outskirts of the song in a microcosm of how folk has always walked parallel to so many wonderful artists and songs. This is not a song to blend in with, For Now is a song to stand out with and truly let yourself move in a positive way.
