AFTM finds its roots in classic southern rock while experimenting with sounds from blues, funk, and psychedelia to create something that is truly unique. As a six piece group, the band produces energetic live performances that rouses all types of crowds with their musical creativity, cohesion as a group, and fun atmosphere.
Currently, the band is performing at venues around Athens, Atlanta, and other cities across the southeast, and has released three original songs, with more on the way. AFTM has a passionate following that is expanding by the day and with every show.
In 2014, founding members Murray and Connor fused their jazz and classical backgrounds with their affinity for high-energy electric rock, creating an undeniably unique sound and on-stage chemistry. In 2015, songwriter Tom Galloway moved to Nashville and began collaborating with the band. Murray and Galloway shared a musical history under the band, Mama's Love, who had also shared the stage with Connor's prog rock band, Afro. Berklee School of Music connected Murray with John Rodrigue, rounding out the lineup.
Their first LP, Mirage (2015), revealed well-versed musicianship and intricate sonic dynamics. Moon Taxi's Wes Bailey took the production helm for MARADEEN's second album, Above the Horizon (2016), and brought to life a sound that was more eclectic, more layered, and more refined all at the same time.
MARADEEN is currently on tour across the country with highly-acclaimed reception. They have shared the stage with acts like Bon Jovi, The Rhythm Devils, Todd Nance, Keller Williams, The Revivalists, Moon Taxi, Perpetual Groove, The Apache Relay, Bloodkin, and Colonel Bruce Hampton, to name a few. MARADEEN is poised as a rock band on the rise, breaking musical ground both in songwriting and in the live arena.
