2004 – present (14 years)
6 Day Riot is a London based band formed in 2006 featuring Tamara Schlesinger (vocals, ukulele, guitar), Daniel Deavin (drums), Gabriel Lucena (guitar), Edd Harwood (upright bass) and Rachel Coleshill (violin, accordion). 6 Day Riot have an individual, eclectic sound, taking on influences from folk and pop music.
The 6 Day Riot sound is both eclectic and at the same time entirely integrated - harnessing ukeleles, guitars, trumpet, violin and accordions with Eastern European folk beats, soca rhythms, distorted guitars and infectious pop melodies to create a style of music utterly their own.
6 Day Riot performed at North by Northeast 2008, debuting a new EP Bring On The Waves, featuring songs written for the festival, including the single Go! Canada. Their new EP and single were released on Tantrum Records, their own label. This year they are playing at Glastonbury and Green Man Festivals as well as touring the UK.
Their new album 6 Day Riot Have A Plan was released on 6th July 2009 on Tantrum Records, featuring new single Run For Your Life.
The band were named as one of the top 10 "pop picks of 2009" by Pete Paphides at the Times and their latest single has received National Radio play on Radio 2, 6 music, XFM and Radio 1.
