Based in Ocean Beach, AJ Froman is an experimental, progressive rock band fronted by a female vocalist, featuring Sarah Norwood (vocals), Jeff Shaefer (guitar/synth), John Joyce (bass), Albert Bowman (guitar), and William Hart (drums). Their debut full-length was released in 2013.

According to the band, "We play rock driven with psychedelic, ambient breakdowns, syncopated rhythms, and driving dancy riffs."

They released their Nocturno EP in August 2014. The following summer, a video was released for the song "Phoenix Syndrome," directed by Ben Koffman and previewing a same-named January 2016 album.

Early 2017 saw the release of Indecorum, recorded with Adrian Terrazas-González from the Mars Volta.
