Echo After

Echo After


Echo After is a 4-member alt-rock band from Grand Rapids, MI that plays original music, leads worship, and speaks to youth and college age.


Since their stage debut in October, 2005, the popularity of Echo After (EA) has increased tremendously. The band has impressed audiences at night clubs, coffee shops, festivals, churches, and camps across the Midwest. Though clearly a rock band, EA presents an array of sound touching elements of modern, alternative, and pop rock. Because of this mature grasp of music the band appeals to many age groups from pre-teen to adults.

Echo After’s desire is to create original music that rocks and touches lives. The guys have a passion for musical expression as a ministry. Beneath their catchy melodies and guitar riffs lie authentic lyrics that confront life tragedies and pain. Yet amidst the darkness of depression, shame, and death, they offer reassuring hope through Jesus Christ. Whether performing at a church or night club, EA openly shares their testimony.

One of Echo After’s greatest assets is their stage show. Labeled by one listener as “the complete package,” the band creates a unique experience providing musical entertainment backed by a powerful message. Front-man Drew Hamlet holds a degree in Youth Ministry and is no stranger to the stage. His ability to capture audience members through personal testimony is incredible.

Echo After has opened for many national acts including Thousand Foot Krutch (Tooth and Nail), Pillar (Flicker), Need to Breathe (Atlantic), Kevin Max of DC Talk (Northern), Day of Fire (Essential), Decyfer Down (SRE), Everyday Sunday (Flicker), Kids in the Way (Flicker), The Showdown (Solid State), and more.

Echo After released their debut full-length album "When I Fall Apart" December of 2007. The album was recorded in Dallas, TX and produced by Grammy award winning producer Eric Delegard (Bowling for Soup, Submersed, Drowning Pool) and mastered by Richard Dodd (David Crowder Band, Casting Crowns, Jars of Clay).

“WOW! These 4 guys have an amazing love for God that radiates throughout a crowd with every note they make! Kids respond to them and the lyrics of their songs in a very personal way. What person or organization with a love for youth could ask for more?”
