Joel McCausland and Kevin Peay, better known to thousands of loyal fans as the musical duo AFTERGLOW, began their musical career together 20 years ago in Pleasant Grove, Utah. As juniors in high school they formed a small singing group with two girls, performing for community groups and at local fairs. They eventually started singing at LDS firesides, playing for a number of months before leaving for their missions in 1980. Before departing, they recorded two musical cassettes under the name AFTERGLOW and sold the tapes to friends.
By 1984, Deseret Book had signed the duo to a recording contract. They have since recorded 17 albums for the label, five of which were recorded in England with the London Philharmonic Orchestra: A More Perfect Light, How Great Thou Art, Love at Home, Forever Christmas, and Another Witness.
Kevin and Joel have also recorded two country albums as the group McCOSLYN & PAYE: Close to Home, released through Deseret Book in 1997, and No Love Lost i>.
