John Elliott
John Elliott
The Hereafter is the America-based music project of John Elliott. John is a writer, performer, singer, player, jammer, producer, recorder, historian, camper, traveller, pilot, and cyclist. He lives in San Francisco right now, but grew up in suburban Minnesota. He had called many places home, including but not limited to: Brooklyn, Austin, suburban Chicago, several Los Angeles locations (Los Feliz, Studio City, Venice, Echo Park), and the great old American road for two years in a Honda Civic. John believes in the Bruce Springsteen live performance work ethic,
nonviolence, the Bob Dylan smirk of irreverence and humor, the American Dream that never has been and never will be, and communicating with our so-called enemies.

John Elliott writes gripping stream-of-consciousness songs that often take unexpected turns en route to delivering a powerful message. Chuck Schiele of The San Diego Troubadour wrote about Elliott's lyrics: "They get in, make their statement, kick you in the teeth, and get out before they start talking too much...And this lends to the urge of rolling any track to its beginning for another spin."

Elliott began playing at various Hollywood venues in 2001, had expanded throughout southern California by 2003, and later became a nationally touring artist. He has performed in several countries and every state except Hawaii. His music has been featured on hit TV shows including Grey's Anatomy and Californication, as well as in PASTE Magazine, on NPR
and Neil Young's "Living With War" website. Also various other places in reality and on the internet, including iTunes, campfires, cars, and vasectomy surgeon offices during operations.

Maya Hall
A native of Fukuoka, Japan, Maya Hall moved to San Francisco in 2014 in search of bigger musical pastures. She had been a part of the music scene as a respected vocalist, taking part in a variety of different acts in Fukuoka and Tokyo.

Since moving to San Francisco, she has trained herself how to play the guitar in order to write her own songs, and has done so with the same musical agility she reveals when she sings. Like her voice, her guitar playing is equally her own silky and sweet style. When she plays, her chord progressions, dainty riffs and interesting rhythms match her soul exactly.
