Memphis melodic rock band Fear. The Sparrow is the brainchild of musician and songwriter Ben Hardy, a veteran of a wide range of rock sub-genres including emo, punk, and power pop.
At its core, Fear. The Sparrow is the culmination of the most masterful elements of Hardy’s songwriting combined the heavy hitting drums of Johnny Friedman, the massive guitar leads of Tristan Barton and the masterful low end provided by Rhyan Tindal. Similar to those of Starliner, the cornerstones of Fear. The Sparrow’s sound are derived primarily from the second wave of emo of the 1990's and pop punk of the early 2000's, characterized by roaring guitars and blistering tempos. However, with the embrace of more contemporary musical conventions, the band epitomizes a poppier and more accessible brand of punk and emo, stylistically resembling artists like Jimmy Eat World, Switchfoot, Yellowcard, and Blink 182.
In two short years, Fear. The Sparrow’s first single “Critical” impressively reached #1 on the British Internet Alternative Radio Charts in November 2018 and was voted top rock song on OurStage Internet Radio in March 2019, while the following single “Panic” reached #11 on the Indie Star Radio Top 21 in April 2019. The band often becomes an immediate favorite to those listening for the first time, having been described as “one of the best melodic rock bands to come out of Memphis”, “catchy and crowd engaging”, and “something music needs right now”.
