Afterglow is a band from Nanaimo, BC


Afterglow is Canadian pop rock band from Vancouver Island BC. Originally consisting of brothers Adam Ryan and Aron Shane. The group formed in 2005 when Aron was asked by brother Adam to drum and co-produce the EP “Yellow Brick Drive” with producer/engineer Rick Salt. With Rick Salt as the performing Bassist for the E.P. the group released Yellow Brick Drive in 2007. Feb 14, 2012 the group released their second E.P “Get Up and Go”. A suitable title as the record came after an extensive break following the loss of their father in 2008. The record was one of growth and personal struggle, a landmark record for songwriter Adam Ryan. Afterglow was ready to “get up and go” and was soon back to live performances again with a range of bassist and keyboard players. Both EPs received spins on some of Canada’s top major radio stations/collage and Internet radio. The EPs received interest from some of the countries top indie labels. October 2013, the brothers were back in the studio, recording 2 new songs with producer/engineer Rick Salt playing bass and additional instruments. Current changes in the industry led to a revised plan - to record and release one single complete with a music video,every 3 months. The 1st new single “DRIVE” was released March 13 and is available for FREE download on the site. Shortly after recording, Aron’s decision to pursue his other interest’s in film,photography and graphic design, led to the brothers going separate ways. All though front man Adam Ryan has become more of a solo artist these days, he still goes under the name Afterglow and his goals remain the same. Adam is currently searching for collaborating musicians that share the same passion, drive and goals as himself. Adam Ryan continues to grow as a songwriter and a musician, this is all too apparent with his latest release “Drive” and shows a promising outlook for 2014.

I like these vocals a lot... just smooth enough to let those long higher notes slide by without being grating. Nice pacing too - very STPish.
