BASS LIONS (Kitchener, ON)

BASS LIONS (Kitchener, ON)

Bass Lions are a group of musicians formed around the tandem of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Nathan Stretch, and drummer Anthony James. Bass Lions work in the push and pull – combining Stretch’s spare guitar arrangements and taught lyrics with James’ frenetic drumming. Frequent collaborators include long-time friends, and family members who have absorbed Bass Lions’ penchant for tricky time signatures and syncopated, indie-rock-and-jazz arrangements into their bones, normalizing the process and resulting music along the way.

Bass Lions want to make complex music sound easy, to engage with a broad group of listeners, and continue to combine evocative, mercurial arrangements with soulful lyricism  – to invite audiences in to experience the “love and brains” of Bass Lions’ personal yet adventurous recordings and live performances.
