Fulham’s very own Faith Brothers were tipped for the big time and, despite not hitting the dizzy heights of the 1980's charts, achieved the respect of their peers and built a solid and dedicated fan base who remain loyal to this very day!

The Faith Brothers produced a unique and passionate brand of rock laced with an old soul feel which allowed them to address important political and moral issues without the need to preach. The debut single, Country Of The Blind in 1985, set the tone with an attack on a nation with a decaying welfare state. Stranger On Home Ground (also 1985) was closer to their hearts, dealing with loss of community in Fulham Court - where they lived and grew up. The year ended with the more optimistic Eventide, a title shared by the Faith Brothers’ debut album released on Virgin Records. A second album, A Human Sound followed in 1987, along with two final classic singles; Consider Me and That’s Just The Way It Is With Me.

Despite high profile tours with U2, REM, Julian Cope, Boomtown Rats, The Alarm and Pete Townshend, plus rave reviews in the press, the band didn’t ‘make it’ and sadly called it a day in 1988. However, their fans did not forget them and have kept their music and their reputation alive to this day.

The Faith Brothers were:
Billy Franks (guitar/vocals/songwriter) | Lee Hirons (bass, songwriter) | Mark Hirons (guitar) | Henry Trezise (keyboards) | Mark Waterman (saxophone) | Will Tipper (trumpet) | Steve Howlett (drums). Billy Franks sadly passed away in 2016.

This special event to celebrate the Faith Brothers will be held on Saturday 4th June 2022, with live music, DJ's and raffle. Money raised from ticket sales will go to the Youth Music charity, who invest in music-making projects that help children and young people aged 0-25 to develop personally and socially as well as musically.
