THE BAND : ALWAYS ALMOST
(Bio info supplied by the band:)
Always Almost is a band from West Point, Pennsylvania, drawing from the energy and musical diversity of The Who, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Cream. The three members, Brett Kull (guitar and voice), Paul Ramsey (drums), Ray Weston (bass and voice), have spent way too much time together. From 1990 to 1995 as echolyn they released four albums, one of which is on Sony/550 (BK 57623) and still available in stores. These have sold nearly 25,000 copies worldwide-- not bad for being an underground band with a name that no one could spell! After echolyn broke up, Brett and Paul began to build a reputation as top notch session players in the Philadelphia area. This led them to the folky/pop sounds of Grey Eye Glances (Mercury/ Parachute,#314534198-2) whose debut release, Eventide, has received much acclaim for its sensible song writing and beautiful vocals by Jennifer Nobel. A new album with Grey Eye Glances is in the works for 1998 that will also include Paul and Brett. Finding time in-between touring with GEG and various session work, Brett, Paul and Ray released the album "Always Almost" in the spring of 1997 under the name Still and played occasional gigs to support its release. Now under the new name of Always Almost they have released a new album (December 1997) called "God Pounds His Nails". This new album, produced by Brett, is a beautiful collection of songs with hints of The Beatles, Big Star, Led Zeppelin, and Jellyfish and truly shows in its music a richness that can be gained only through experience.
