Since AFTM started back in the spring of 2017 as a southern rock band playing University of Georgia fraternity parties and bars around Athens, Georgia, the 5 piece unit has developed themselves into a band with a sound that you can’t quite put your finger on.
Forrest Whitlark (Vocals) and Will MacLane (Rhythm Guitar), the original members of the band, began playing music together in their early childhood. They brought their talents to Athens, GA, where they would recruit John Cherry (Keys) and Kelly Bouchillon (Lead Guitar) in the fall of 2017, and then Cam Corsino (Drums) in the spring of 2018.
While some members derive their influence from indie rock and blues, others pull inspiration from classic rock, jazz, and metal, creating a unique blend of their own cohesive and eclectic sound. AFTM has quickly gained success as well as a significant following playing festivals and selling out venues across the southeast. Their shows are highly energetic, exciting, and a one of a kind experience.
