The Afterwhile Charm The Midwest Bluesy Folk Scene On Upcoming Album, These Days
Hailing from New Smyrna Beach, FL, The Afterwhile are a family band to the truest extent. The Cuchetti siblings, along with their bassist Alex Ceserani, have taken Central Florida by storm with a raw, dreamy folk sound that speaks to the heart of the music they’ve loved since their musical childhoods.
Most often compared to Brandi Carlile, Mumford and Sons, Adele, Dave Matthews and Ray Lamontagne, The Afterwhile will release their new full-length album These Days in May and take their music on the road for their third Midwest tour this June. At the same time, they will have their track “IJ” featured on WiFi PR Group’s compilation, Indie Anthems Vol. 6.
The Afterwhile grew out of the musical talents of the Cuchetti siblings—Gina on lead vocals, piano and guitar, Anthony on vocals and guitar and Chris on vocals and drums—plus their bassist Alex Ceserani. The Cuchettis grew up surrounded by music in a family of 10 kids who traveled around the country performing with their parents for 15 years as the nationally acclaimed group, The Fabulous Conti Family. Even after the family stopped touring, Gina, Anthony and Chris kept at it and created their own bluesy folk band that is now prepared to release its latest recording, These Days.
These accomplishments include a number of high profile performances and competition achievements. They were state finalists in the 2013 Texaco Country Music Showdown and 2013 winners of the St. Augustine Battle of the Bands. They opened for the B52’s at Sunfest in 2010, for The Little River Band at Rock and Rib Fest in 2012 and as a fringe band for the Mumford and Sons Gentlemen of the Road tour stop in St. Augustine in 2013. Lead vocalist Gina made it to the blind auditions in front of celebrity judges on Season 2 of “The Voice,” and she also performed at the Apollo Theater in New York for the Night at the Apollo show.
The summer is proving to be a big season for The Afterwhile and their musical endeavors. Not only are they releasing These Days in May and planning a Midwest tour to kick off in June, but also in June will be the release of WiFi PR Group’s compilation, Indie Anthems Vol. 6, on which their song “IJ” will be featured. This digital mixtape is a collection of international independent talent who WiFi PR wants to put on the radars of music lovers and industry movers and shakers the world over. Set to be released at NXNE in Toronto, it will be handed out on 3,500 download cards to festival attendees, and 1,500 more free download copies will be made available on the Indie Anthems Bandcamp website.
To see The Afterwhile live in action, music lovers can check out their upcoming live performances, including Café Da Vinci in Deland, FL, on May 9th, which is also their CD release party, and Ann O’Malley’s in St. Augustine, FL, on May 10th. They’ll also be kicking off their third Midwest tour the first week of June, with dates and venues TBA on their website calendar.
As for accessing their music, including their upcoming album, These Days, fans can purchase copies from their website, CD Baby and at live shows. CD Baby has also distributed their music to more than 29 other digital sources.
The Afterwhile also have videos on their YouTube channel, including videos of “These Days” and “St. Croix Ave” as well as a cover of “Summertime,” all performed live.
