小提琴手/作曲家Jaron Freeman-Fox（JFF）游刃有余地游走在美妙与荒诞的微妙边界，颠覆了小提琴的传统，并重新定义了小提琴所能之事。他在超过40张专辑（Teresa Doyle、Jayme Stone、Autorickshaw）中参与了制作或演奏；作为独奏艺人、乐队领队，以及Delhi 2 Dublin、Ben Caplan和Sam Lee等多个乐队的合作艺人，他在全球进行了多次巡演。此后，他将小提琴功底与印度古典音乐和爵士乐的学习融会贯通，同时师从先锋小提琴家Oliver Schroer研习五弦小提琴。
2013年，经过历时三年的巡演、创作、录音和深入探索之后，JFF和他势如破竹的乐队The Opposite of Everything终于为世人带来了他们的全新专辑，并获得热烈好评。他们的作品世界各地的电台热播，并收获了三项加拿大民谣音乐大奖。
JFF有不少值得称道的经历：他曾在加拿大国会山为10万观众以及英国皇室的威廉王子和凯特王妃演奏；加拿大大使馆曾委派他前往印度德里国际艺术节（Delhi International Arts Festival）与拉贾斯坦邦的游牧吉普赛艺术家合作；他的首张专辑《Manic Almanac : Slow Möbius》一经推出就获得了“独立音乐奖（the IMAs）”；他曾与Delhi 2 Dublin、Tanya Tagaq和James Kudelka同台……然而最让Jaron本人为之骄傲的，却是他曾经在演出中将三把不同的小提琴砸得粉碎；在巴厘岛被猴子偷了琴，而后安然无恙地把琴找了回来而没有染上狂犬病；当然，还有他能有幸与他最喜欢的音乐家们共同组建乐队The Opposite of Everything。
The Opposite of Everything将JFF既复杂又精致的作曲转化为具有强烈感染力的狂欢派对，甚至被乐评形容为“马哈维什努管弦乐团伴奏下的Tom Waits在演奏小提琴”。从希腊塞萨洛尼基到瑞典斯德哥尔摩，乐队经历了三年马不停蹄的全球巡演。乐队目前正在录制他们的第二张专辑，预计将于今年夏天发行。
Contorting the violin into new traditions, violinist/composer Jaron Freeman-Fox dances down the fine line between the beautiful and the ridiculous, while redefining what the violin can do. Having produced or played on over 40 albums (Teresa Doyle, Jayme Stone, Autorickshaw) and toured the world many times over as a solo artist, band leader or collaborator with bands such as Delhi 2 Dublin, Ben Caplan, and Sam Lee, Freeman-Fox fuses his roots of fiddling with his study of Indian classical music and jazz, while playing the 5-string violins of his late mentor: fiddle pioneer Oliver Schroer.
In 2013, after 3 years of touring, writing, recording and spelunking with his fiery band Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything, the group’s new album was released into the wild and greeted by enthusiastic reviews, radio play around the world, and 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards!
Folks may be intrigued by the fact that JFF has performed for 100,000 people and the young royal couple on Parliament Hill, or that the Canadian Embassy was kind enough (or foolish enough) to send him off to collaborate with a troupe of nomadic Rajasthani gypsies at the Delhi International Arts Festival, or that his debut album “Manic Almanac : Slow Möbius” won an Independent Music Award(the IMAs), or that he’s shared the stage with Delhi 2 Dublin, Tanya Tagaq, and James Kudelka. Jaron, however, is most proud of the fact that he’s broken three different fiddles on stage and zero bones, had his violin stolen by monkeys in Bali and got it back without contracting rabies, and has the honor of featuring his favorite musicians in the world, in his band The Opposite of Everything.
Described as “Tom Waits playing the fiddle, backed up by the Mahavishnu Orchestra”, The Opposite of Everything transform Freeman-Fox’s intricate compositions into an infectious party. The band has had a busy 3 years scurrying across the globe from Thessaloniki to Stockholm, which you can read all about on the band page. The band is now recording their second album which expected to be released this summer.
 Rajasthani: India’s largest state by area, located in the west of India and close to Pakistan.
