The Almost Faithful - I Disappear #Flyah Submission


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.
John Feodorov formed The Almost Faithful in 2015. A musician and songwriter long before establishing himself as a multi-media artist, Feodorov decided to search for musicians looking to “create something different”. Initially, the goal was to put together a band to play moody ambient-like music for art galleries, museum openings and performing arts festivals. Hoping to concentrate on writing and guitar playing, the initial version of TAF utilized female vocals and a second guitarist. However, after various incarnations, in mid-2017 the band settled upon their current line-up with John taking over lead vocal duties. As a trio, the band’s philosophically-tinged songs took on a much harder rock edge, allowing the remaining band members to express their creative selves without compromise.
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 sound that is as raw and gritty as it is intentional and well-crafted.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as The Kinks, PJ Harvey, Gang of Four, and King Crimson, The Almost Faithful’s songs are simultaneously introspective and intense, while their lyrics maneuver between pensive reflection and biting social critique.
In 2016 the NW Music Scene blog wrote that The Almost Faithful’s debut EP “…takes you on a journey that is at times progressive, often alluring, into a dreamscape of sounds that is touched by the grit of grunge.” Stephen Graham at KNDD radio described the band’s song, “My Soul Is Saving Me”, as sounding, “straight out of a Quentin Tarantino film.”
“Human | Nature” is the title of their new 10-song album, and is scheduled for release on Oct. 2nd, 2018.The songs address themes such as consumerism, alienation, spiritual conflict and doubt in the age of alternative facts.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
