Loris and the Lion Logo - Text reads: 'Loris and the Lion' written  in the style of a story book.
Loris and the Lion Eat Me Alice - Press

Loris and the Lion weave gentle tales of joy and loss; a patchwork of sonic delights to soothe the soul and feed the heart.

An alt folk duo from Liverpool, navigating life together accompanied by: fairytales; folktales; lifetales; a piano; a clarinet; a harmonium; a guitar (often bowed); too many effects pedals; sometimes a tenor recorder; some homemade bells; many other instruments they 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).

Calling to mind the sounds and spirit of  Joanna Newsom, Tori Amos and Jesca Hoop.

Jorinde & Joringel by Loris and the Lion - Digital Artwork that looks like an old fairytale book.

PRESS

"This is contemporary Folk at its best."

"Criminally underheard" 

“Their storytelling is carried through every element of their music from melody to lyrics to the accompanying visuals, leaving you completely convinced by the web of some wondrous world that they spin around you.” -

Albums of the Year 2021

// Bido Lito

"The best art defines its own parameters by creating its own world where its very existence makes complete and total sense. Which leads us to the magical duo that is Loris and The Lion, who give us a musical invitation to enter their world with their debut EP Jorinde and Joringel. Six tracks of otherworldly and metaphysical perfection, a truly delicious set of songs, pure contemplative sonic majesty. Thank you for taking the time to perfectly craft these compositions. Truly astonishing."

"Their music is filled with the most exquisite lyrics that are accompanied by fragile piano, swarming strings and gossamer melodies."

Loris and the Lion convey  a haunting aura [...] with complex melodies and enchanting vocals from lead singer Georgia Harris, immersing whoever listens in an enveloping, chilling sound."

"Absolutely gorgeous — ambitious, thoughtful, eerie, and well-constructed."

"There's both a starkness and delicate tone to the sound that makes for a superb juxtaposition."

"known for their haunting performances of songs that capture your heart and your imagination. So softly spoken as they entered the stage, then a cascade of emotion revealed itself to tear at the very fabric of your heart. Their songs are very pure in sound, the combination of acoustic guitar, keyboard, and harmonies create a soothing yet captivating atmosphere in the room."
