In September of 1981, Doug Ramsay was sitting in his college dorm room and heard some slammin' bass guitar playing coming from the room above him. He went upstairs to check it out, and introduced himself to his future roommate, Dan McCollum. Since Doug played guitar in various high school R&B bands and Dan did the same on bass, the two naturally hit it off.

Being roommates during and after college allowed them to begin writing and recording. From the beginning using an old Electro-Harmonix drum machine and tape recorder, they went to their first pro session at a $1 per track 12-track studio in Fairfield, CT. From there they put together a group featuring a male and two female vocalists. Out of that came songs such as "Backslider," "Same Place, Same Time," "Baby Girl," "You're The One," "I Want Your Love" (The Slammin Funk Remix), and "Special Lady." It was during that time, they were also soliciting the talents of a young and very talented teenage songwriter and producer, Bernard Edwards, Jr, son of the famed, late bassist, Bernard Edwards of the legendary disco and R&B group, Chic.

The mid-80's saw the birth of After Six (yes, they were formed just a few months before After 7 came out) and submission of a demo to SOLAR Records, who acknowledged some interest, but nothing came out of it. The two then parted ways due to employment seeking, etc.

Fast-forward to 2002, after the development of two home studios, and one relocation, After Six Productions was born. The first studio project was a remix of a song called "It Takes Two." The success of the debut caused the team to more formally pursue a writing/performing/production role, which they are still doing today.

In 2015, the debut project What Love Is was released. This nine-track urban contemporary/pop project told the story of boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in and out of love, only to find each other again and live life happily ever after. The project gained success here in the US as well as in the UK.

The duo is currently working on tracks from an upcoming project entitled AfterSix PM.

Doug's main instrument is guitar, with bass guitar as a second instrument and keyboards third. Dan plays bass guitar primarily, and keyboards second.

AfterSix Productions looks forward to doing business with you.
