ARTIST OF THE DAY
When The Afters broke out onto the scene with Never Going Back to OK, it didn't seem like anything could stop them. But life's circumstances quickly changed everything. After losing their longtime friend and manager to a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, two band members decided to part ways with the band, and then there was a life-threatening car wreck followed by a new member of the band losing a close friend one week after joining the band.
It was a rough season of change for The Afters. Holding on to their faith and their passion for making music, has kept the band focused throughout the mess of it all. Through the pain, faith grew in abundance and that is definitely the message behind their latest album Light Up The Sky.
Exposure: Despite being full-tilt Christ focussed in their lyrics and lives, The Afters have had some secular success as well; featured on MTV, NBC's The Biggest Loser, Dr. Phil, Rachel Ray, and Grey's Anatomy.
Name Game: Before becoming The Afters, the line-up went by the moniquer "Screaming Mimes" and then "Blisse."
Double Soy Latte (hold the foam): The band's original 4 all met and worked together at Starbucks.
The Afters are:
Founding member Josh Havens (lead vocals/keys/guitars)
Founding member Matt Fuqua (vocals/guitars)
New member Dan Ostebo (bass)
New member Jordan Mohilowski (drums)
