Half After is a progressive rock band based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, CA. The musical style of the band can best be defined as a fusion of sounds spanning 3 decades of music including the singer songwriter compositions of the 70’s, the over the top rock anthems of the 80’s and guttural growls of 90’s grunge and heavy metal. When combined these musical styles form a unique and eccentric look at a cohesive group of musicians dedicated to the magic of self expression through sound.
In autumn 2009 Half After cofounders, Tracy Fey and Bret Bradford, began writing and recording what would become Half After’s debut album “Midnight Freedom”. With minimal expectations of the album, Tracy and Bret were elated with the final outcome and the positive reactions and reviews that have been pouring in. This elation transformed into a desire to put a band together and start rehearsing.
Enter Matt Vargas; a soulful and rock driven Bass player. Matt started playing bass at the age of 18. He searched long and hard for the right combination of musicians before stumbling upon Half After. Matt holds down sultry rhythms that provide a driving force for the band.
Auditions for a drummer began and there was no other choice but Kevin Borges. Kevin has been active in percussion since the age of 13. He attended San Jose State University and University of the Pacific studying on a full scholarship, studying Music Performance and Music Therapy. Kevin has performed with such groups as Fluid, Denial, 20 Grit, and Heritage.
Rounding out the group was the addition of Mark Randall on Rhythm Guitar. Mark grew up in the musically affluently area of New Orleans, LA. Mark has played since age 16 all over the United States. His straight forward rock style is the perfect complement to Half After’s music.
At present Half After is interested in making as much noise as possible throughout the Bay area and beyond. Their set consists of all original music and they are capable of performing a two hour set. Of course the guys continue to refine their style and work on new music with a new Half After album due by in the spring of 2012.
