Fake ID fittingly hails from the home of rock 'n' roll, Cleveland, Ohio. Its members met at the local School of Rock and decided to form their own band to showcase their musicianship and songwriting.
The band has already achieved an astounding level of success. Cleveland Magazine named Fake ID Cleveland's "Best Unexpected Rock Stars" in its 2019 Best of Cleveland issue. Most recently, Fake ID reached the finals of the 24th Annual Tri-C High School Rock Off.
The band has played two successive years at Ohio Bike Week, each to rave reviews. Scene Magazine featured Fake ID in a February 2019 cover story. And, the band has played sets in clubs all over Northeast Ohio.
Started as a cover band, Fake ID still plays songs from artists that have influenced its members: Black Sabbath, Muse, and Rage Against the Machine, to name a few.
They are now hard at work crafting original songs that reflect the diverse musicals tastes of each of the band members. They been busy playing these songs out live, and plan to get into the studio as soon as they can to record their first EP.
