“Like Daniel, I would step into The Lions' den for this sound! Yes they are fierce – the kings of the jungle” –
Jeremy Sole, KCRW

Inspired by reggae, sound system culture and the myriad of musical
styles influenced by Jamaican music old and new, The Lions’ sound is
firmly placed in soul music.

"All the guys in The Lions grew up on classic Jamaican records so since
we began we have wanted to give our records that same edge and roughness
that we grew up hearing on LPs by The Upsetters, Soul Syndicate, The
Rockers Band and Roots Radics. The rhythm section was all recorded to
tape, the Hammond buzzed a little, fuses blew and good mistakes were
left in.  We basically made the dusty reggae soul LP WE have been
wanting to hear for years." – Dan Ubick (producer)

The band draws together a dozen or so of LA’s elite reggae and soul
forerunners who loosely coalesced as The Lions in 2007. Members of the
legendary ska band Hepcat, Deston Berry and Alex Désert, form half of
the vocal team, and the latter also has a successful career on screen,
including roles in the films Swingers and High Fidelity.  The other half
is the sweet falsetto of Malik Moore and DJ stylings of Black
Shakespeare, the charismatic cousin of Robbie Shakespeare (of Sly &
Robbie fame) and co-runner of the i&i Sound System, a customised ice
cream van bringing bass to the streets of the west coast and featured
on the cover of both Saul Williams’ self-titled album and an issue of
XLR8R Magazine.

Other members include guitarist Dan Ubick, formerly of Breakestra, Macy
Gray co-writer and collaborator Dave Wilder on bass, plus musicians who
have played with the likes of De La Soul, Barrington Levy, Beck, Raphael
Saadiq, Big Daddy Kane and Black Eyed Peas.
