Keeping the Faith Since 1993
Truefaith was formed in 1993 on the heels of the sudden popularity of their demo single “Perfect” which became a hit on 99.5 RT for several weeks. They immediately gained cult following from colleges and universities to eventually become one of the more popular and accomplished bands from the Philippines.
Founding members, Medwin Marfil, Francis Guevarra and Ferdie Marquez took the band’s name from New Order’s 1987 hit single “True Faith“, revealing the group’s 80’s New Wave influence. Initially, True Faith’s music was inspired by the new wave sounds for its brand of breezy pop melodies but the group quickly developed their own brand of OPM that expanded their reach to a wide and diverse demographic of Filipino music consumers.
Currently, Truefaith are Medwin Marfil (vocals), Eugene Marfil (acoustic guitar), Jake Lumacad (keys), Allan Elgar (lead guitar), Macky Macaventa (bass) and Kaka Quisumbing (drums).
