About After Aura
After Aura are a band from Wiltshire, Southwest England. They comprise of musicians collected from several genre diverse bands, fusing Folk, Indie, Rock together to create their own distinctive style and quality of original music. Started in the spring of 2014, long time friends and song writing collaborators Chris Hoar and Marcel Rose stepped out as an acoustic duo performing original songs in local pubs and clubs. They were soon joined by Abi who provided much needed female vocals and backing vocals as a counterpoint to Chris', as well as contributing lyrics to songs such as "Suzy & the Emperor". The band expanded further with the addition of Pete on Bass, Louise on Keyboards and Ukulele, and Jake on drums. This not only expanded their sound, the addition of Louise and Jake also brought their song writing abilities to the mix with the song "If...". Finally, as a six piece band, After Aura have been able to focus on creating a big, distinctive live sound, comprising of 3 part harmonies and quality musicianship. From 2014 onwards After Aura have continually gigged, playing pubs, clubs, and festivals, including The Village Pump Folk Festival, Alexandra Palace in London, Salisbury City Hall, and many other venues. After Aura have released 3 recordings: The first in the winter of 2014 was their debut EP "Bridge Over Fire". 2015 saw the release of their first single "Falling My Friend", and the spring of 2016 saw the release of their debut album "In The Dark".
