Afterglow is the duo Kevin Peay and Joel McCausland. Afterglow had humble beginnings in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah. The duo actually began as a quartet that included two each of male and female voices. The quartet began performing while they were high school juniors in Pleasant Grove, Utah. They quickly became popular, performing throughout the area and recording two tapes under the name Afterglow. Then the boys left for their missions abroad and the quartet disbanded. Upon their return, the now-grown men, Joel McCausland and Kevin Peay, decided to continue with their musical careers as Afterglow. Peay lives in Centerville, Utah with wife Cindy and four children. McCausland and wife Kelly and six children live in Fruit Heights, Utah.
They share their thoughts: "Life is an interesting thing - seems like it's full of adventures, challenges, and balancing of good times with harder experiences. We all get our share of each, but the two of us have felt fortunate to have so much good in our lives: Good families who support us and teach us and help us succeed; Good friends who make life better and more complete; Good music that gives us a way to express how we feel. In the words of our good friend James Marsden, 'All the beautiful things' we get to experience in life." Afterglow
