Bio

In the Seattle summer of 2002, starting with only a 4-track and her guitar, Jennifer Czeisler began writing songs. The songs, influenced by the likes of The Pixies, X and early Police so impressed husband Adam Czeisler (Sweet Water, Parc Boys), that he decided he had to get involved. And, after months of struggling to keep working with their original drummer, Dave Krusen, who had moved to Los Angeles, Jennifer and Adam enlisted the help of friend Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam, Brad) on drums to pick up where Dave had left off.

This couple isn’t the rebirth of Kurt and Courtney or hyping themselves like Jack and Meg -- they function together on a level that compliments both themselves and the music. Each one brings an opposite, but necessary element. It is this underlying yin and yang chemistry that highlights every song. Jennifer’s quietly urgent point of view (musically and vocally) intricately twists with Adam’s strong guitar playing and sharp vocals. The feminine qualities of the music keep it together, like a bass line, quietly ebbing and pulsing up from underneath all other elements of the song. One hardly realizes it’s there, but the music would be lacking with its absence.

The songs are stripped of all the pomp and circumstance, focusing only on the true nature of the band. The March Lions are a truly honest independent rock band -- the music exists solely on the power of the songwriter. Some songs are quietly persistent in their story, some are simple rock-out-with-your-heart-out anthems and others are pure dirty pop rock crackerbashes that explode with a force that is as beautiful as it is powerful. Jennifer’s vocals and lyrics are the uniqueness of every song, providing all the heartbreak and emotion of a woman using songwriting as her diary. The songs are intensely personal and honest – it is storytelling in the same vein as countless pre-riot grrl indie rock songwriters like Juliana Hatfield, Mary Lou Lord and Kim Deal.
