"The Afterglow are a terrific, highly talented, pop-rock band" (BBC6, United Kingdom).
"Flawless, ripe, shiny, juicy and damn tasty. Impressive stuff this, well worth a looksee" (Xfm Radio London, United Kingdom).
The Afterglow are a pop-rock band standing proud since 1998.
Founder members are the half english frontman and bassist Dave Timson and pianist/guitarist Mik Lennard, who started the band in Turin, NW Italy, in 1998. After a few line up changes they found the right drummer in Alex Cherry, who joined them in 2002.
The band based themselves partially in Italy and partially in the UK, on account of their songwriting and sound, which are far more akin to an English pop-rock act.
