"HLL Review #1"

"Formed from remnants of Me Llamo Rosa and Lenore, Hearts Like Lions has quietly yet steadily cultivated its stylized, backwards-glancing modern rock over the past year. With a five-song EP under its belt and another on the way, this act is poised to move to the next level." - Westword

"The 900 E.P. Review"

Hearts Like Lions are definitely not you're average synth pop band. Normally other bands come to mind when I listen to music nowadays and to be perfectly honest I think they are their own breed of music. Intelligent Lyrics, and Unique Keyboards, and High Quality guitar riffs. Who really could ask for more? Above all else they have the passion of a band who have been around for years and years. I'm proud to be living in the same city as this band. Half the time you can't really tell if a band is into what they are doing with some of their songs that they have but with Hearts Like Lions, you can really feel the warmth and compassion of how much effort they put into their music. That is truly a refreshing thing to be witness too. That rarely happens. All I can say is never discontinue the work you guys have put out so far. Stay a band as long as possible.

Formed in January of 2008 by Tyler Briskie and Chance Scott-Burke, Hearts Like Lions is one of the newest bands in the growing Denver music scene. Playing in various groups together since the mid '90s including local band Me Llamo Rosa, Chance and Tyler have grown together as musicians and have been able to put together a unique sound that has been compared to Saves The Day and The Killers. Joined by friends James Morrison and Matt Wilson, HLL is excited to start playing shows all over the United States.

Chance (keys/vocals), a pianist since the age of nine, has been interested in composing music for as long as he can remember. It wasn't until 2002, however, that Scott-Burke started writing for himself and breaking away from sheet music. He has been enthralled ever since and experimented with many types of music; but for him it has always come back to the rock that he grew up with.

Tyler (guitar) has also had a very intimate relationship with music since he was young and self taught himself many instruments including the guitar. Feeling the thrill of selling out shows with former band Lenore, he has developed a love for playing live music. Having a taste for nothing else, in 2005 Briskie graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver with a BA in Audio Engineering and has since engineered many live shows around the Denver area.

James Morrison is joining his former Me Llamo Rosa bandmates on bass, an instrument he has grown an astonishing affinity for since originally learning how to play the guitar. Matt Wilson has also been in his share of local bands. His drumming provides a strong, powerful groove rooted in rock and punk.

Strengthened with soulful vocals and powerful beats, the guys have brought everything in their arsenal to the table. Currently finishing up writing their first album, they hope to take their show on the road and see the world. And with such a thirst for adventure and focus on diligence, some might say that HLL are ready for the challenge.
