We Will Be Lions
We Will Be Lions formed in the Spring of 2012. That Summer we recorded our self-titled demo, which features 3 songs that rarely make an appearance anymore (except for second encores, wink wink). In Winter 2013, we toured the Pacific Northwest, playing all up and down the coast from Ashland, to Portland, to Seattle. In Spring 2013, we recorded our first EP, “You Will Be Heroes,” at Tiny Telephone in SF. Check out some footage from the studio session.
We Will Be Lions is a solid setting for me to be refining my craft. I’ve got the flexibility to try new grooves, feel out funky fills and let loose. There are also plenty of intentionally dancey and/or rock and roll sections, which have given me the room to practice simplifying and laying down support rhythms. It’s a great combo of driving the music forward, providing the groovy backbone, and discovering moments to do something weird and technical.
