Say Nice Things to someone you love today!


Now & Neverland was born by chance on just another Friday afternoon in Nashville, TN. Glitzy pop rocker Krysta Youngs crashed into town from Boston, MA and was on a mission to find a partner in crime; a Now to her Neverland. She spent days sipping ice coffee and sifting through the pages of the World Wide Web until she stumbled across J. Churchill Morris. A distinguished songwriter with a face resembling that of a modern day Sherlock Holmes, Miss Youngs knew that Mr. Morris was going to be the one to help her solve the mystery of Music City. She reached out to him via Facebook and he responded almost immediately. A date was set to meet at 1PM on a Friday afternoon in a reserved white room at SESAC. Neither one knew it then, but that day would mark the beginning of two one-of-a-kind imaginations merging together to create song. The bond between the crazy pop girl and the shy country guy was immediate and deepened even further once she learned of his similar migration south from Massachusetts. They made a firm pact to meet every single Friday to strum guitars, play pianos and write lyrics. Months and countless clock hands passed as they diligently cranked out little ditties until one day Krysta looked at J. and J. looked at Krysta and they just knew…it was time to make a record.

"If you imagined the perfect combination of pop and country, with the added bonus of lyrical talent and a unique persona, what would you think of? Personally, I would think of Nashville’s up and coming duo, Now & Neverland. This musical duo, made up of Krysta Youngs and J. Churchill Morris, was born by chance in Nashville. Krysta brings a pop-rocker feel to the duo that beautifully complements the songwriting and vocal talents of J. Now & Neverland developed out of weekly meetings consisting of singing and songwriting that eventually flourished into a unique bond and talent. After being provided the opportunity to showcase this duo’s talent, I quickly added their EP Say Nice Things to my iPod, eager to check them out. I was taken aback by their raw lyrical and vocal talent. Most impressive, while casually listening to my iPod, I found myself nodding and tapping along to one of the songs on shuffle mode. Concurrently, I became mesmerized by the lyrics of the song. It was soon after that I realized I was listening to a song off the Now & Neverland EP that I had not yet listened to. Furthermore, I was amazed by the talent oozing out of this song, as well as the others from the EP. In fact, I was surprised and disappointed by the fact that this duo has not yet been recognized for their authenticity. Being a girl in my late teens, Now & Neverland’s songs definitely speak to the emotional, love struck side of me. Undoubtedly, their music relates to a longing for love lost and love to come – themes that can resonate with a younger audience. Say Nice Things is a showcase of alternative country songs, most of which have a slower and lyrical presence. “Missing New England” is a song about missing a place and a love of a previous time and place. “Till You Walk In” is, in my opinion, the song from their EP that best embraces the traditional sound and feel of country music. The duo speeds things up with their song “Today We’ll Start Forever”, a catchy, finger-snapping song that articulates a whimsical and young love. Their song “I Don’t Want Nothing” is most definitely my favourite song from the duo. My interpretation of the song is that it speaks to a longing for a reciprocated love that has come and gone, but also longing for the strength to move on from this love.

Overall, I got more than I hoped for by reviewing this EP. Not only was I provided with the opportunity to showcase a growing talent, but I was also able to develop an admiration and respect for a duo that I will continue to listen to. It is my hope that Now & Neverland will receive the recognition they deserve as they continue to prosper in the music industry." - Keepin' It Country

"We love when we stumble upon awesome awesome new music, you gotta check these guys out!
Meet Now and Neverland, a killer new male/female duo who were brought together, by a chance internet stumbling. The two northern native’s have got a great cross genre sound ranging from pop to country, to everywhere in between. Drawing from inspirations like The Civil Wars, Lady A and John Mayer, the two have been able to come together and create something truly special and unique. Now and Neverland, has just released their debut EP, Say Nice things, and the production alone gets a gold star. We love what these guys have got going on! Be sure to stop over to their website and pick it up." Twin Love
