The Follow

The Follow is Troy “Shoreland” Rickertsen, Amy “AJ Darkwatch” Rickertsen and Powers “Avon” Matlack. This group of best friends is from a small Midwestern town and has found worldwide support due to consistently streaming live broadcasts for over five years. Their great friendship developed into the root core of what is The Follow today. It drives the band and allows them to explore not only music, but life together.

Influenced by U2, Radiohead, and Pink Floyd, The Follow have enjoyed sharing stages with various artists such as Plain White T’s, Billy Corgan’s Zwan, & Gravity Kills. With six albums, one DVD, and hundreds of live performances, The Follow received airplay on college and commercial radio across North America while supporting the releases by touring in the United States and Europe.

The Follow entered the virtual world of Second Life (SL) in 2009 as a way to continue touring in a more globally conscious way. The band members drive a Honda Insight hybrid to the broadcast location, they use energy-efficient LED lights for their show environment, and most distribution to national and international radio & press is accomplished digitally eliminating plastic CDs, paper envelops, and transportation resources.
