For Now is an original music project led by vocalist/composer Isabel Crespo. In their music, they blend modern jazz harmony, poetic lyrics, and melodies reminiscent of classical counterpoint to create a unique and honest sound. For Now is a versatile ensemble that fluctuates between intimate ballads, protest music, and up-tempo groove-based compositions. The project's name alludes to the ever-changing nature of life, and it is a dedication to representing the current state of affairs whether personal, interpersonal, local, national, or global. The project began in the Summer 2016, and has since performed all over the DFW area in venues, at house shows, at Charity Events, and more. They will be releasing their first album in 2018.

RHU is a Denton based composer and multi-instrumentalist. Her vocal style is evocative and captivating, playfully finessing sophisticated melodies, while displaying a tone that is lush and compelling. Her music encompasses an eclectic mix of indie rock, acoustic pop, and jazz.
RHU was born Jordan Coffing in Los Angeles California to a film composer/songwriter and graphic artist. Her love of music and performing was always encouraged. She later moved to Houston Texas and attended the High School for the Performing and Visual arts where she studied classical and contemporary voice. She began taking guitar lessons at the age of 14 and was introduced to jazz by her instructor. The rich harmony and powerful voices of Carmen Mcrae, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone are what brought Coffing to love jazz and lead her to attend the University of North Texas to pursue a degree in Jazz. While at UNT she set her roots deep in tradition and carries her timeless heritage with her as she progresses into the future, looking to contemporary paragons from both jazz and indie rock for inspiration.
The name RHU (pronounced: roo; short for kangaroo) is a childhood nickname given to her by her father to describe the way she jumped around in a swing that hung in the doorway while listening to music. The name symbolizes the earliest stages of her love for music.
RHU released her debut EP "Transitioning" in June of 2017.
