Lion’s Mouth produces a fierce wall of sound that is not content with being background music. Swift, driving beats burst from Sara Wexler’s sticks hitting you like a well-timed punch. As you lie breathless on the floor, Chelsea Z.’s “amazingly sweet voice” (105.5 TripleM) and “five-piece orchestra” (Music Without Boundaries) guitar work pull you back up to your feet. These dynamic styles combine to create upbeat, two-fisted confessions punctuated by strikingly gentle lullabies.
Chelsea and Sara don't shy away from pushing genre boundaries, drawing wide-ranging comparisons from The Pixies to Joni Mitchell. Having only played together for a year, Lion's Mouth shows massive talent and has racked up an impressive list of venues and festival slots including the Bubble Music Festival, PrideFest Milwaukee, Red Dragon Television, the MidWest Acoustic Music Festival, and has recently been nominated for Madison's RAW Artist of the Year Award. Lion's Mouth is currently working on their first studio album due out in 2014.
With all the sensibilities of pop, the relentless energy of punk, and the heart and soul of folk, Lion’s Mouth gives indescribable a sound.
