The things I — and probably a lot of other people — like most about The Happy Fits is your silly charm , contagious fun , and Calvin ’ s cello , which makes for really interesting and eclectic instrumentation as both a lead and rhythm instrument , the latter especially when it ’ s plucked . So let ’ s break each of those down . Comment on how and why not taking yourself or life too seriously is appealing to you and your fans , and what impact that has had for you and them in dealing with the pandemic in a positive way . Calvin : Growing up , I always had a smile on my face and realized the power of positivity not just on myself but others . As one of my best friends Matthew told me , ‘ It ’ s nice to be nice .’ I try to live by that mantra , and I like to see it resonate with our fans .
