Truefaith goes ‘senti’ at 25

OPM rock band Truefaith released Sentimental, their 10th album since their debut in 1981.

This year marks the 25th year in the business of one of the country’s top pop bands, Truefaith. To celebrate this milestone, an anniversary show is scheduled for 25 October at the Music Museum, aptly titled “Far From Perfect: Truefaith’s Senti 25, The Silver Anniversary Show.” The concert promises to be an engaging night of Truefaith’s brand of Filipino pop music, plus some surprises including very special guests (which will be announced soon).

Truefaith has won several accolades including MTV Philippines’ Video of the Year 2001 for the music video of the song, “Awit Para Sa Kanya” and a bunch of Awit Awards. In fact, they are nominated again in this year’s upcoming Awit awards in the category of Best Group for the song, “Cool Lang,” from the just-released 10th album, Sentimental.

Sentimental is a collection of new material that are as good as their past hits, “Perfect,” “Huwag Na Lang Kaya?” “Muntik Nang Maabot Ang Langit,” “Kung OK Lang Sa ‘Yo” and “Dahil Ikaw.” Their latest single, “Kahit Na,” will have its music video (shot entirely in beautiful Sorsogon) released online soon. It has been a long way since the early days of the band’s original members working at Fullerton Studios in 1992. Now, Medwin Marfil (vocals), Allan Elgar (lead guitar), Macky Macaventa (bass), Eugene Marfil (acoustic guitar), Jake Lumacad (keyboards) and Kaka Quisumbing (drums) are determined more than ever to pursue their musical dreams with a lot of hard work and faith!

The band is still doing what they do best — providing their fans with ditties containing well-thought of and relatable lyrics blended with heartfelt melodies. For True Faith, they’re still far from being perfect because they still strive for excellence in their craft even after 25 years in the industry.
