The Almost Faithful is a Seattle-based alt-rock trio featuring guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist John Feodorov, bass guitarist Hal Deranek, and drummer James Lord.
With songs informed by Art Rock, Post-Punk, Progressive and Psychedelic Rock, The Almost Faithful weaves together thought-provoking and mordant lyrics with staccato guitar riffs, intense bass lines, and dynamic drumming to create a complex sound that is as raw and gritty as it is intentional and well-crafted.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as The Who, The Kinks, Pixies, David Bowie, Tom Waits and Bertolt Brecht, The Almost Faithful’s songs are simultaneously introspective and intense, with Feodorov’s lyrics maneuvering between pensive reflection and biting irony.
John Feodorov formed the Almost Faithful in 2015. Having been a musician and songwriter long before establishing himself as a multi-media artist, Feodorov decided to put ads out for musicians looking to “create something different”. After various incarnations, in mid-2017 the band settled upon their current line-up. As a trio, the band’s philosophically tinged songs have taken on a much harder edge, allowing band members to express their creative selves without compromise.
The Almost Faithful's new album, "Human | Nature", will be released in October of 2018.
