For our latest First Listen, we’re focusing on a ballad from the album featuring terrific vocal performances by longtime SoulTracks fave Wendy Moten and David Foster protégé, the late Warren Wiebe. “The Time Is Now” has the building feel of the kind of love songs that dominate the AC charts in the 80s and early 90s – now being fondly recalled by many as Yacht Soul.

Both melodic and well performed, “The Time Is Now” is a new song with a classic feel. Check it out below and tell us what you think.
