"A wide-eyed young woman recently moved from the Midwest to the big city sings Boundaries at an open mic night. Inspired by and celebrating folk music as protest, with a generous nod to Ani DiFranco. We tried to mimic her brilliant juxtaposition of sweet, steady melody with lyrics that have some bite. It sets the stage for the rest of the album," said writers Tim Aumiller and Scott Schneider.

A Musical Parody), Krystina Alabado (Mean Girls), Michael Lee Brown (Dear Evan Hansen), Max Crumm (Disaster!), Dayna Dantzler (Waitress), Deon'te Goodman (Hamilton), Nathan Lee Graham, (Hadestown, National Tour), Jason Moody (Hair, National Tour) and singer/songwriter Shanna Sharp.

"In the weeks and year after the election, there was a rupture, a seismic shift in our political landscape. Nazis were unabashedly showing their faces. The unthinkable happened every day and became complete normalcy. And yet we also found love, fell out of love, had babies. Amidst the chaos we persisted and tried to let everything go. That's what we were trying to capture, all of those things and how people were processing, including us," continued Aumiller and Schneider.

The Year After received a one-night only presentation at The Green Room 42 in 2018.
