‘Afterglow’, tells the story of Café ‘t Keerpunt, a historical pub in Spijkerboor, The Netherlands. The song takes the listener back into the past and taps into the feeling of the comforts of home.

Robb Murphy and his band performed at ‘t Keerpunt many times over the years. Willem Dijkema, the owner of the pub, asked Robb to write a song about his experiences. ‘Afterglow’ will be part of a compilation CD that will be released later this year by the owners of the pub to celebrate their 20-year ownership.
