Described as “Gogol Bordello meets The Mothers of Invention” or “Tom Waits playing the fiddle while fronting the Mahavishnu Orchestra” The Opposite of Everything somehow combine bluegrass with Indian music, African beats with sea shanties, or klezmer with the blues, and make it sound like the most natural thing in the world. With a diverse cast of Toronto’s finest and most adventurous musicians, the band’s long-awaited new self-titled album was released in Canada this march, greeted by enthusiastic reviews, awards, and airplay across the country. Now off for their third consecutive year of touring festivals coast to coast, the band will be heading back to europe this fall to release the new album internationally.
Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything have rampaged through a feast of festivals in 2011 and 2012- including:
Vancouver Folk Festival, | Northern Lights Festival Boréal, | Guelph Jazz Festival, | Ottawa Jazz Festival, | Mariposa Folk Festival, | Blue Skies Music Festival, | Newfoundland Sound Symposium, | Kispiox Music Festival, | Live From the Rock Folk Festival | WOMEX
“Jaron Freeman Fox & The Opposite of Everything electrified the Blue Skies stage. It was an instant dance party. The music was both challenging and superb. A definite highlight of the weekend. Jaron’s creativity and talents are simply amazing…”
