I’ve posted about I Heard A Lion on several occasions, especially the past two years when Doug was a part of the band and regularly practicing and playing shows.
The thing is, sometimes your friends are in a band and you support them just because you know they’re passionate about it… and then there are other times when you are genuinely blown away by the talent they have within them and by the music they are capable of making. Seeing them work together to create a song–many songs– something so complete with so many layers… it’s like watching a painter create a masterpiece. Well, I admit that I was a fan of I Heard a Lion long before Doug was in the band and now that he is not a part of them anymore, I still love them just as much. Maybe even more.
They have a new 6-track album coming out tomorrow, called “Little Wars.” Doug recorded some vocals and a number of keyboard tracks for this last September (you can see him in the video), and the guys have been working diligently on the album ever since. A lot of hard work and even more heart has gone into this album, so on behalf of everyone who has worked on it I encourage you to check it out. Digital downloads will be available on iTunes and Amazon this Tuesday, July 16… and if you click over to Amazon you can preview all of the songs right now. I highly recommend it!
