The Afters      

Christian Musicians

Founded by Joshua Havens (vocals/guitar/keyboard) and Matt Fuqua (guitar/backing vocals), The Afters was formed as the two musicians who worked together as baristas at a Starbucks in Mesquite, Texas began playing for customers at the local coffee shop. Their popularity and fanbase would spread, as Joshua and Matt eventually moved on to performing at local clubs in the Dallas area. After catching the attention of a Nashville record label, the band, which also includes bassist Jordan Mohilowski and bassist Dan Ostebo, gained popularity with its first single "Beautiful Love." The song was used as the theme song for MTV's hit show "8th and Ocean" and was also featured in the 2006 Lindsay Lohan film, "Just My Luck."

After forging a partnership with a mainstream label in addition to its Christian market label, The Afters' second single "Never Going Back to OK" was a #1 hit that pushed listeners to drop their "comfortable lifestyles and yearn for something greater". It was followed up with their single, "Light Up The Sky," which speaks of God's continued guidance when we stumble in the darkness.

With their 2013 single, "Every Good Thing," off the album Life Is Beautiful (April 16, 2013), the band continues to encourage listeners, reminding us of how God can make beauty from heartache.

They released their fifth album, Live on Forever, in September 2016. Their sixth album, Fear No More, came out at the end of May 2019.
