In The A.M. is an American Rock band formed in Indianapolis, IN by lead singer and guitarist Alex Shimp. The band name was coined by Alex in 2018 to serve as an alias for releasing music under a name different than his own given first and last name. A.M. are Alex’s first and middle initial, which is where
the name stemmed from.
In 2020, Alex funded, wrote, and recorded the band’s EP What Have I Become mostly on his own and since has continued taking a more standalone approach to the writing of the band’s music and development. Being the main contributing factor to the band’s music, most guitar, bass, vocals, and other instrumentals are written and performed by Alex on studio recordings.
