Together, they've come to produce their own unique brand of bold dreamlike pop. With the message of living in the moment, "Live For Now" is an anthem tune to blast as you're getting ready for the New Year.
With over fifteen years in the music business, most notably with Maverick Records and Warner Brothers, Coleman has performed internationally and co-wrote with renowned artists.

The song is about living in the moment, letting go of the past, and embracing the future.
What's truly special about Bonhom is that they flawlessly blend pop, rock, and electronic elements to create masterful tracks ranging from their heartfelt prayer of "Sandy Be Gentle"(a musical plea for the East Coast during Hurricane Sandy) to infectious party anthems like "Animal."
