Feeling a bit camera shy


Stemming from lead singer Anthony Jardine’s solo project which received national attention in the pages of Gladys Magazine, These Lions has been taking the Pittsburgh music scene by storm. The Indie/Alternative band came together in April of 2010 with a force that is not seen by many local bands. Since the inception of the project, These Lions performed at 40 shows in the greater Pittsburgh area, allowing them to gain great momentum and a loyal fan-base.
Anthony Jardine (vocals/lead guitar), Bryan Humphreys (bass guitar), Briana Carraher (cello) and David Rocco (drums) boast a unique sound that captivates audiences time and time again. These Lions draw their sound and influence from eclectic musicians like Jeff Buckley, Band of Horses, Yeasayer, Sigur Ros and even a number of classical composers.
Currently, the band is hard at work finishing their debut record, which is set to drop in May 2011. The anticipation for the record has been talked about among many Pittsburgh publications, including Maniac Magazine (a Pittsburgh-based fashion, entertainment and lifestyle magazine). Having played some of the city’s largest and most reputable venues (Club Café, The Hard Rock Café, The Rex Theater and Mr. Smalls), These Lions’ sound is one that takes the listener through an emotional adventure that resonates with each person on different levels. Carraher on cello allows the band to experiment with different classical infusions that most bands are not able to offer.
These talented musicians have been named “the band to watch in 2011” by Pittsburgh’s music critics, and they are certainly making waves in the city they call home. Prepare to enter the lion’s den, as you let These Lions take the lead on a most exciting musical experience.
