About the Artist
NOT TODAY formed September 2014. The band started as an acoustic project titled ‘U.N.I’ where vocalist, rhythm guitarist Ayrton McGurgan and lead guitarist Darragh Kelly wrote a mass amount of original songs. With the addition of drummer Emily Pinkerton they decided to go electric where they were later joined by bassist Jason Gallagher.
NOT TODAY played their first gig in Top Of The Town Omagh in February 2015 and since then have become a regular on the local scene while playing a vast amount of locations across NI/Ireland. The band released their debut EP, 'Let It Light' later the same year, soon followed by debut single 'The Get Go' early 2016 which has received airplay on various radio stations across the UK including: BBC Radio Ulster, Highland Radio & Rock Radio UK. The band are currently fresh out of the studio and have released their second single 'Behind Closed Doors' which was followed up by their brand new EP 'Riot Upstairs' early 2017. The band are set to announce their first full NI tour coming soon...

'A Little Different' Darren Shan's comment
by Darren ShanI love it when a musician or band writes a song inspired by my books. It's a sweet, touching accolade. The latest to pen a Shan-generated song is a band from Northern Ireland called Not Today, with...
'The Get Go' Radio Debut
by Rigsy & Stuart Bailie, Across The LineIt reminds me of 'Dinosaur Jr.' and 'Teenage Fanclub' and it's got that slightly nonchalant, slackery, grungy, twisted guitar sound and they do it with great passion, it's that 90's rock and roll...
RockTherapyNI, The Ivy Bar Newtownards 09/10/2015
by John Allen, Planet MoshA young band with devloping musicians. Their own tunes range from punky riffers to more delicate sounds of an early Big Country jangle - which may touch upon what The Skids were previously doing.
