released January 1, 2013
Thereafter's main songwriter and singer, Neil Hammond, says that in co-creating 'Ceremony', he was dreaming up the album that was missing from his record collection. 'We love rich rhythmic acoustic music, complex guitar picking, string and wind sections, tight vocal harmonies and kick-ass instrumentals. It is rare to find a single album that does all that's what we set out to do with Thereafter's debut album 'Ceremony'.'

Neil met Thereafter's harmony singer, flute player and instrumental composer Keona Hammond when playing in the more celtically-infused 'Cleia'. They got married in the meantime, moved to an island, had some kids and wrote a bunch of music. Teaming up with fellow islander and Juno awarding winning cellist Shanto Acharia they slowly wood-shedded their sound, rounding it out for 'Ceremony' with Annie Brown's fiddle and Juno-award winning percussionist Ben Brown on pared-down percussion.
