A House for Lions Find a Better Way to Crowdfund

Crowdfunding is becoming more and more commonplace, with everyone from former Dresden Doll, Amanda Palmer, to The Voice contestant, Lindsey Pavao utilizing the Kickstarter platform. Standing out in our crowded internet is no easy task, yet LA modern rock band, A House for Lions, found a way to sidestep the middle man and fund a successful campaign all on their own. With an impressive $13,354 raised to date with over 180 backers, this once unknown group formed by singer/songwriter Daniel Norman, is making headlines of its own. Creative rewards ranging from the band’s merch to surfing lessons, and a promise to donate a portion of the proceeds to charity, are proving that cutting out the middle man was a good decision. The campaign’s purpose is to raise funds for their first full length studio album, produced by Tom Biller, who previously worked with Silversun Pickups, Elliot Smith, and Fiona Apple, to name a few. The band manages to blend the sleeker side of angsty 90s rock with the laid-back instrumentation and heart-string pulling melodies you expect from an alt-country band. Hopefully we will get to hear some of the tunes they’ve been working on in the studio at their Monday Night February Residency at the Echoplex. For now, give a listen to “Let Back,” the single off their previous EP, I Want Us To Be Remembered. Unlike other fundraising platforms, their campaign is open-ended, so you can still donate if the music compels you. - Jacqueline Caruso

A House For Lions plays Echo Park Rising Festival 8.25

It made sense as scenes got fragmented that the best bands would work on a fence, crafting a fusion that could work beyond the niche. That's precisely the simple beauty of A House For Lions, who emerged onto LA's indie-rock scene almost two years ago, and have been drawing attention to themselves ever since. They stand right between alt-folk and alt-rock, singing with penetrating tenderness, playing it raw for those who won't have it too polished, reverberated, distorted for those who 'like it rough' so to speak. It's a blissful blend really, that wraps around you, grips you; their first single especially, 'Let Back', which started things off as it settled in founder Daniel Norman's head and showed him the way.

It's now been over a year since their first EP “I Want Us To Be Remembered”, and no, we haven't forgotten them; so when the new year comes and they're ready to drop this first album they're working on, we'll be there. Meanwhile though, you can see them play at Taix for The Echo Park Rising Festival on August 25th. Streaming below is their new track, an original cover of Tina Turner's classic hit 'What's Love Got To Do With It' - enjoy! - Tracy Mamoun
