"Listeners with an ear for passionately crafted independent music that manages to capture both the weight of reality as well as a sense of levity will fall immediately in love with the sound that Now Defunkt has constructed - and the specific lyrical message and emotional underpinnings of their songs promise to leave a lasting impression on fans of Funky, Jam-adjacent styles and Soulful expressions of sonic artistry!"
– John Wright, Radio Airplay 

“This music is very cinematic. It sounds like watching a Fellini film if it was scored by Joy Division, John Prine and Rare Earth. This band is deeply committed to the song.”
– Alejandro Miranda, Tapalqué

 
“Every now and again, you come across a track that transcends typical genre barriers to create something truly unique sounding and refreshingly bold in its execution, to me, this is one such track. Every element of "Tumbleweed Angels" has a wonderful amount of bite to it, from the attitude-filled lyrics and vocal performances to the ultra-melodic guitar riffs and hard-hitting synth, Now Defunkt serves up an absolute monster of a song that is unapologetically daring, tremendously adventurous, and brilliantly audacious, brilliant work!”
– Andre Avanessian, Guitar Nerd


 
Now Defunkters
 
 
 
Stephen and Anastasia McMahon (Orange County, CA)
 
Imagine yourself, on a magical misty mountain top getting ready to camp down, with the Now Defunkters. I Stephen, who got sober just in time for the 2020 cliff drop, shall henceforth be known as Lester Funk and I like pork chops and apple sauce. Lester likes tasty riffs and cool licks. Above all Lester likes Good music with good people. And getting defunkt with the Now Defunkt Squad.
 
Anastasia is a singer/songwriter and a photographer. Her contribution to the first album was her lyrics/guitar/locals on “Creeping Cthulhu” as well as video/photography for three of the music videos. When she is not creating she can be found doing yoga or playing Dungeons and Dragons.
 
IsraelJames and Amaris Hunter (Yakima, Wa & Los Angeles, CA)
 
IsraelJames Hunter is a multi-instrumentalist/ producer who added some low-end bliss and directed some of the sonic traffic on Now DeFunkt’s recent release. When he not music he sleep … somewhere.
 
Amaris grew up the daughter of a migrant farm worker and explores place making through stories and art. She is a major appreciator of the arts in community setting. Her world is occupied by various mediums, including food, film, makeup, and drawing. Amaris contributed artwork, vocals, and general team support.
 
Scott, Case and Nikko Macklin (Seattle, WA)
 
Scott likes to create songs and stories through a process of deep hanging out and can usually be found looking for an espresso and a sandwich. Scott spends most of his time teaching how to convene meaningful community happenings. For Now Defunkt efforts, he contributed song writing, some singing, jarana, ukulele and at varying degrees served the over-all harmonic modification.
 
Nikko is a creative who added her photography skills and contributed the song “Teachers,” to the first album. She can usually be found stage managing different plays and musicals, studying, or playing with her two cats. She would like to thank all other Defunkters for all that they do.
 
Case is a producer, sound engineer, and the one behind the mix for several songs on Now Defunkt’s debut album. He also produced and recorded the song Old Enough. Case is said to be found somewhere in the middle between trauma and nirvana, typically behind the scenes with a laptop and a plate of something tasty.
