Lion Bear Fox - Song Writer Series February 2, 2017 7:30 pmSong Writer Series : $60.75Vancouver's Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined in mighty harmony, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative and unbridled passion. Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption. Lion Bear Fox is "a musical force of nature", an "emotional awakening" that's sure to "be around for a lifetime". (Nanaimo Daily News/Songs in the Valley/Terry David Mulligan).
2016 sees Lion Bear Fox further cementing themselves as the new Canadian band to watch. With the help of friend and producer Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), the trio spent ten days in the Vancouver Island wilderness crafting "the record of their lives" - a collection of songs steeped in character and full of warmth. One part folk, one part rock - a pinch of gospel and a dash of growl, the self-titled LP is a testament to the trio's strength as songwriters.
Lush acoustic guitars are bookended by buzzing electrics and screaming organs; all tied together by rich percussion and three voices in harmony. It's a sound that harkens back to an era when the song was paramount.
