Hello! We are The Happy Fits, an indie rock trio from Pittstown, New Jersey. Ross plays guitar, Luke plays the drums, and Calvin plays the electric cello. We came together in the summer of 2016 to raise money for local charities before heading off to our first year of college. However, when our song “While You Fade Away” blew up on Spotify, we decided to leave college and chase our dreams of becoming rockstars that could use music to make the world a little better. Our biggest influences are The Killers, The Strokes, and Alabama Shakes (to name a few).
National fencing champion Ross Monteith and orchestra nerd Calvin Langman didn’t exactly get along in high school. However, a chance conversation in 2014 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. The resulting music produced a youthful and chaotic frenzy of catchy melodies and raw instrumentals. When the band recruited professional gamer Luke Davis to join the band on drums, The Happy Fits were born. The band’s first single “While You Fade Away” from their debut EP “Awfully Apeelin'” reached #5 on Spotify’s Top 50 Viral USA Chart the first week of its release.
