Recommended: The Lion and The Wolf

the lion and the wolfThe Lion and The Wolf is the performing moniker of Thomas George. Thomas has been touring relentlessly throughout 2014, and his addictive live set of dejected yet hopeful songs coupled with truthful and earnest vocals have seen him perform all over Europe, from the top to the bottom of the UK, not to mention UK and EU tour support for the likes of Rob Lynch, Owls By Nature and Our Time Down Here, as well as appearances at Slam Dunk, Hevy Festival and Isle of Wight Festival.

Staying true to the DIY ethic, this extensive touring has all been orchestrated off his own back. More recently, Thomas has been in the studio in the south coast of England, recording The Lion & The Wolf’s debut full length, Symptoms wich was released in October last year via his own label Courage And Stone Records. The album can be streamed in its entirety via the bandcamp player below.

The original bedroom recordings of lo-fi folk songs have been brought to life with full instrumentation and warm analogue sounds. Thomas’ very particular approach to the production of the record meant that the album was recorded with no digital plug-ins whatsoever, serving to create a raw, natural sound and ultimately a more powerful impact, whilst in some ways staying true to the lo-fi sound that shaped previous releases.

Above all, The Lion & The Wolf is known for his captivating live shows. This Spring will see The Lion And The Wolf constantly on the road, in support of his new album. He will be hitting the UK and Europe alongside Owls By Nature and Ducking Punches respectively. Tour dates can be found below.
