“A very successful female duo that comes to mind is Tegan & Sara, and honestly with the right promotion and someone backing Lion’s Mouth, they could go just as far – all of the elements for success are present with this duo.” – Wendy Redden, theRevue.ca
“Lion’s Mouth hits it hard and heavy. This duo act is on fire. If you get a chance to hear this outfit. I highly recommend them.” – Ari John White, Red Dragon TV.
The women of Lion’s Mouth are as fearless as the music they create. Singer and guitarist Chelsea Z. has a past full of dangerous hobbies which include training as a volunteer firefighter to playing ice hockey. Percussionist Sara Wexler is a double-edged sword having studied both Tae Kwon Do and drums since she was in elementary school. With all of that energy harnessed in their songs, it is hard not to take notice.
Their debut album Lion’s Mouth has been called “daring” (WordKrapht.com) and a “tightly knitted symphony between drums, guitar and vocals” (Maximum Ink Magazine).
As a duo, they pump out more sound and energy than your average four piece band. Swift, driving beats burst from Sara’s sticks hitting you like a well-timed punch. As you lie breathless on the floor, Chelsea’s “amazingly sweet voice” (105.5 TripleM) and “five-piece orchestra” (Music Without Boundaries) guitar work pull you back up to your feet. These dynamic styles combine to create forceful, two-fisted confessions.
Since forming in 2012, Lion’s Mouth has racked up an impressive list of venues including the House of Blues (LA) and festival slots including two appearances at PrideFest Milwaukee, a Red Dragon Television special, and a Live @ WSUM radio session (WSUM 91.7FM). Their commanding stage presence and humorous banter has won the hearts of rockers and hipsters alike.
After selling everything that couldn’t fit in a van and moving from Madison, WI to Los Angeles, they will release their first single in 4 years. “Moving Song” is the first in a series of singles that will be released over the next year. The release was entirely written, produced, and recorded by the band.
When they are not playing music, Sara and Chelsea like walking, climbing trees, and eating tofu-cream cheese bagels.
