Loris the Lion

Loris and the Lion

Friday 15th May, 1pm

Loris and the Lion weave gentle tales of joy and loss; a patchwork of sonic delights built by (wo)man and machine to soothe the soul and feed the heart. A duo from Liverpool, navigating life together accompanied by: fairytales; folktales; lifetales; a piano; a clarinet; a harmonium; a guitar; too many effects pedals; sometimes a tenor recorder; some spooky sounding homemade bells; many other instruments we haven’t discovered yet; a shared love of choral music; an insatiable appetite for tea; a general love of nature (especially trees when looked up at from beneath); Joni Mitchell (naturally); Kate Bush (a first love); love (a second one).

Loris and the Lion comprises Georgia Harris and Rich Bond, who both studied music/popular music at the University of Liverpool between 2013-2016. During their degree, they formed the collective Selkies with other music department graduates Siubhán Macauley and Lydia Ward, performing a mixture of traditional tunes, original compositions, and other arrangementsbrought together under the umbrella of folk music. This ensemble offered Georgia and Rich opportunity to explore their musical relationship, and discover the roots of the sound world which Loris and the Lion inhabit. During lockdown, they are recording an E.P. capturing the first set of songs they worked on together. Their previous singles 'Mockingbird' and 'Breadcrumbs' are available here: https://lorisandthelion.bandcamp.com

Georgia currently works an early years/SEND specialist and professional musician. Rich works in Liverpool as a music producer, recording engineer, and professional musician. To work with Rich, and for more information visit: www.richard-bond.com
