National fencer Ross Monteith and orchestra nerd Calvin Langman didn't exactly get along in high school.
However, a chance conversation about the success of Youtube cover bands brought the two together to pave a road to quick fortune. Their mix of rocking guitars and electric cello created a unique dynamic, blending their love of rock artists like The Black Keys and folk bands like The Violent Femmes. Working on covers grew tiresome, and an emotional break-up soon inspired them to write their first song together. The resulting music produced a youthful and chaotic frenzy of catchy melodies and raw instrumentals. When they recruited professional gamer Luke Davis to add his stylish flair to the band on drums, The Happy Fits were born.
