The Fiddle Revolt was formed in Akron, OH, with the intent of doing something different. The members of the band got tired of the same old "one front man, one genre" format and decided to branch out a bit; swapping lead lines, harmonies everywhere, and the occasional instrument/member rotation. The music spans the full spectrum of rock and doesn't stop there. Funk, soul, blues, R&B, pop, reggae, and more, all play an influencing role.

The Fiddle Revolt is an Akron, OH based alternative rock band with a wide range of sounds. The band is comprised of five members: Alex Beck (fiddle/guitar/vocals), Anthony "Twan" Haddad (bass/vocals), Ian Harlow (drums/keys/vocals), Stephen Mason (drums/keys/vocals), and Nigel Pinnell (guitar/vocals). The band's influences span genres and decades; from Led Zeppelin and The Beatles to Daft Punk and Radiohead, David Bowie and Queen to The Black Keys and Muse, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder to John Mayer and Fitz and the Tantrums. This variety of influences allows TFR to write songs that can be accessible to almost any listener.

The members first started playing together as the backing band for a country artist. The band grew tired of being stuck in one genre with one front man. Unable to convince the lead man to allow for more experimental use of their talents, and with their creativity being stifled, the five members decided to leave and form The Fiddle Revolt. With no front man and no set instrumental roles, the band creates an incredibly exciting live performance. Every member sings lead lines and harmonies, making each song different than the last. Some songs feature the fiddle, while others have swapping lead guitars and no fiddle. To keep things even more enticing, the role of drummer and keyboardist are shared between two members, who switch back and forth, depending on what the song needs.

The sound generated by TFR can be incredibly dynamic. From delicate, almost whimsical productions to massive, heavy hitting sections, the band has a sound for any occasion. The lyrical content is thought provoking, asking questions of the nature of human life. The goal of this band is to provide an alternative to what people are used to from the music industry.
