“Lion Heights is a Reggae/Dub outfit from the Chicagoland area, that’s hear to inform you and the contemporary world, that reggae isn’t all dutchies and jerk chicken. In this tune, the vocalist wails on about the trials of living with just the bare minimum and trying to deal with the constant ills of living in such an ever morphing cruel world. With quality pan flute performance, a catchy chorus and effective lyric delivery, Lion Heights has a tune for the soul and a future that’s hopefully bright.”
