Undeniably, one of 2015’s most exciting breakthrough acts, LION BABE - the New York duo formed of singer/songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey and instrumentalist and producer Lucas Goodman¬ have continued to build serious momentum in early 2016, and are now set to release their highly anticipated debut album Begin.
The album features 14 incredibly soulful tracks created by the duo and includes collaborations with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Childish Gambino, Andrew Wyatt and Al Shux. Critically acclaimed numbers such as “Wonder Woman”, “Impossible”, “Jump Hi”, “Jungle Lady” and their first ever song “Treat Me Like Fire”, sit alongside brand new cuts - set to be future classics - “Stressed OUT”, “Satisfy My Love”, “On The Rocks” and more. The album is co-produced by Mark Ralph, recognizable for his previous work with Years & Years.
Additionally, LION BABE completed a series of surprise guest spots for Disclosure on their Australian tour in early 2016. These surprise appearances, along with radio airplay on Triple J and great reviews by many Australian media outlets, has positioned LION BABEwell with Australian music consumers.
“There is an uplifting theme that comes through our music. There's also funk, soul, and that vibe of really feeling a personality in it. Nowadays there's a lot of music that sounds super processed. You can't tell one singer from the next because of the amount of auto-tune. Our goal is to tell the masses to embrace their uniqueness, because I think that's where life starts to happen.”- Jillian Hervey Interview Magazine
With an impressive 11 million plus streams across audio and visual streaming sites, including Spotify and Vevo, 2015 was an incredible year for LION BABE and with all eyes on them, 2016 is set to be another stellar year for these rapidly rising stars.
