LION BEAR FOX - "No Turning Back Tour" @Charslanding
Fri, May 12th, 8-10pm, Concert  LION BEAR FOX - "No Turning Back Tour" Roots/Rock/Canadiana

When asked how he perceives the new album, Ryan (The Fox) responds This was a big undertaking for us all - our producer Nygel included - and it certainly marks a shift in sound and seriousness for Chris, Cory and myself. When we use the phrase record of our lives, were not kidding. Its the most important work Ive ever been a part of in 17 years of calling myself a musician, and Im very proud of the result that has come from the hard work we all put in.  

"We've had some incredible shows throughout the country over the past couple of years, but the last time we played Char's as a band, we walked upstairs from her green room, and when we entered the old church to begin playing, everybody started cheering like Elton John had just walked in.  We were all like: "Are you sure we're the right guys?  Port Alberni is incredible to us, and whether it's the full band or just one of us up there, Char's sounds good and feels good every time," says Ryan McMahon - aka the Fox.

BIO

Vancouvers Lion Bear Fox, who derived their name from connection with their spirit animals, Christopher Arruda, Cory Woodward and Ryan McMahon craft compelling, honest stories that they convey with passionate commitment.

Described as a musical force of nature thats sure to be around for a lifetime (Nanaimo Daily News/Terry David Mulligan), the three men, known initially for solo careers, joined forces in 2012 and were soon after selected as one of the top 20 unsigned bands in British Columbia by the Peak Performance Project.

In the fall of 2013 the band released their self-produced breakthrough EP Wed Be Good Men. We knew we wanted to use the opportunity to mould the sound and aesthetic from scratch using the songs wed decided to record, Cory (The Bear) explained in an interview in BC Musician. A decision was made very early on to remove all ego from the production process. Nothing was taken off the table; we tried everything, no matter how silly, crazy or counterproductive it seemedwe really wanted to stand apart, sonically speaking.

They toured relentlessly for the next two years, with appearances at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Contact East (PEI), OSAC (Regina), the Mission Folk Festival and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, amongst many others, and theyve shared stages with artists including Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood and Kim Mitchell.

All three artists are known for the passion they bring to their performances and the honest songs they write, enthused the Ladysmith Chronicle, and they have succeeded in creating gripping, dynamic songs while capturing a sincerity rarely heard this side of the 2000s.

In 2016 Lion Bear Fox further cemented their growing status as a new Canadian band to watch, and with the help of friend and producer Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run), the trio spent ten days in the Vancouver Island wilderness crafting the record of their lives, a collection of songs steeped in character and full of warmth.

One part folk, one part rock, with a pinch of gospel and a dash of growl, their self-titled LP is a testament to the trios strength as songwriters. Lush acoustic guitars are bookended by buzzing electrics and screaming organs, anchored by rich percussion and three voices in thrilling harmony; its a sound that harkens back to an era when the song was paramount.

Christopher (The Lion) says, of the albums genesis, At the beginning we definitely took a softer, more folk approach because we were three dudes singing with acoustic guitars. As our touring began to refine our roles and our live show became more explosive, we thought wed be a heavier bluesy-rock act. More recently, we had taken a really polished full-band pop-approach during some demos last year. This growing process was interesting, exciting and at times, painful.

When asked how he perceives the new album, Ryan (The Fox) responds This was a big undertaking for us all - our producer Nygel included - and it certainly marks a shift in sound and seriousness for Chris, Cory and myself. When we use the phrase record of our lives, were not kidding. Its the most important work Ive ever been a part of in 17 years of calling myself a musician, and Im very proud of the result that has come from the hard work we all put in.
