Formed in late 2011, and hailing from sunny Pasadena, California, There Be Lions set out to blaze their own path in rock and roll. Blending the musicianship and power of classic rock with a heavy modern sound, soaring vocals, and layered harmonies, their music is their own unique vision of what rock and roll stands for; built upon a fascinating history tracing back to the delta, and all the legendary bands who were their childhood heroes. Having met in a previous band, guitarist Shaun Ritter and drummer Brandon Lian began writing together in late 2010, piecing together the intricate riffs and dynamic drums that would become their sound. Quickly realizing they shared the same ideas and goals for the band and music they wanted to create, the two enlisted friend and bassist Matthew Denis, whose amazing playing had begun to build a buzz on its own. With the addition of talented vocalist Jordan Koppelman, who had become lifelong friends with Shaun while attending USC, the band was complete and songs began to come together. Within months the band was recording their first EP, There Be Lions, tracking at legendary Capitol Studios in the very heart of Hollywood. With their driving music and exciting live shows, it is readily apparent that There Be Lions is truly enjoying the ride. To them, playing rock and roll is a serious endeavor, but at its very core, it’s all about having fun and sharing in a good time with everyone. With recent radio interviews, awards nominations, and their music beginning to spread across college and national radio, they’re on their way to bringing true rock and roll back to the masses.
