Portrait of Future Now

Future Now

About Future Now

Springfield, MA

"Future Now" is an up and coming country rock musical group of musicians, songwriters, recording artists, engineer, and producers. Future Now is made up of two brothers that are walking in the footsteps of their musically minded and valued parents that have been involved in creating and producing music since the 60's. Their names are Robert O'Leary, (an attorney practicing in Springfield, Massachusetts), and Paul O'Leary (has a Masters in Education and is finishing up a dissertation which will help to earn him a Doctoral degree in Education in the area of technology and education). They have formed the group Future Now (published through Davies Dawn Music {BMI}). Paul, since birth, also deals with Cystic Fibrosis which is a chronic disease that affects both his respiratory and digestive systems. Currently, Paul is on continuous supplemental oxygen.

Rob & Paul have a unique new sound that is original music for today and tomorrow, but yet reminiscent of the best qualities of the past with Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Conway Twitty, Waylon Jennings, Ricky Nelson, Everly Brothers to more contemporary artists like Alan Jackson, U2, Midnight Oil, Neil Young, Garth Brooks, Alabama, Randy Travis, Keith Urban, Rush, Bon Jovi, Meatloaf, Def Leppard, Clint Black, and the legendary Beyond (out of Hong Kong -- yes, check out the Cantonese language cover video on the web site which is an homage to one of that group's greatest hits), Montgomery Gentry, Nelson Brothers, and Brooks & Dunn. These are just to name some of the qualities of the artists that these brothers have come to mind when others hear their songs.

Future Now is fortunate enough to have what can only be seen as a powerhouse of production potential in the engineering area at all stages of production (track recording, mastering, mixing, post mastering - graphics and prepping for CD and radio airplay) . In addition to Paul adding his input and playing the drums and occasional keyboards, bass guitar and vocals, he also takes the sounds that are vibrating in the air and apply them to the digital medium using the premiere Roland 2480 Digital Workstation. Paul currently provides the beat on electronic drums (Roland Vdrums stage set) but started out with acoustic drums (Rogers drums that date back to the old jazz days). Paul has been engineering Future Now's sound since the beginning of 1984 and has built close to a dozen studios using equipment through the years that provided sound to a mix that competed technically to the better material heard on the radio and commercially avalable CDs. Some of this equipment operated primarily in the analog domain (fostex, alesis, boss, yamaha, and mackie) and in later years, in the digital domain (roland and alesis). The sound produced is very clean. The instruments are pristine. The vocals are clean and feel as though they can wrap you up in the warm lush harmonies in the final post-mastered cd sound. The production does not stop there, Paul produces the photographic and graphic expertise that goes into the final CD product, and ultimately videography and DVD production for Future Now's reference videos.
