Lion Says 2
Help us fund LION SAYS new album! After the New Folk adventure, let's go further together !
Lion Says 2
As many of you know, we truly enjoyed sharing the adventure of the first album with you. The interviews, the nice reviews (Rock & Folk, Guitar Part, etc.), the radio shows and the gigs (about thirty in France). All your comments and the good vibes have pushed us even further... So we had to get back to the studio, make some new songs and have fun again with Fred Woff, Arthur Travert, Thomas Hoegy and a few guests. So here we are, twelve new songs later, more passionate than ever. Fred and I (Lio) will be proud to share the new album with you shortly. To give you a foretaste, here is the video of the last recording in a magic studio near Bourges. It's called Through the Storm… Enjoy!
PICK THE FIRST SINGLE !
As mentioned in the intro video, we would like you to help us choose the first single to be released. We will launch the vote when we get about fifty kissbankers on this page. 2 new extracts will appear and you will get a newsletter letting you know the vote is open. We still have a few surprises in store. For now, Fred offers you five cool extracts... Enjoy !
BACK ON STAGE SOON !
We are thrilled to get back together on stage soon with the friends in Lyon, Tom , Judi, Leo and a new member, on acoustic guitars and singing backing vocals : the excellent Christophe Roche. I’ll be personnally (Lio) singing and in charge of the slide guitars (lap steel and cigar box guitar play a real part in the new album).

RELEASE IN 2019
Finally, the album should be released on the web and all good shops, thanks to WTPL and its new music lable, Monstre Sonore, and distributed by PIAS. As you may know, being independent producers imply independent funding. This is where you get in !
Allocation of funds
This new challenge will help us fund :
- album photo and art work = 900E
- pressing of 500 CDs (719E) and 300 vinyl records (1600E) = 2319E
- the 1st video clip (your choice) : contribution = 900E
- KissKissBankBank 8% rate = 329,52E
> A total sum of 4450E flat.
The money collected will be dealt with by our non-profit organization, SSI Prod. We will also apply for funding to la SACEM (AUTO PRODUCTION) and ask for funding to promote the record (ADAMI). Indeed we wish to work with the pro Jean-Philippe Béraud (Martingale), who did a wonderful job on the first album. JP knows indie music very well and defends many quality artists, notably with the independent record company Ici d’Ailleurs.
We are happy to work on this new project with the partners of the first record :
- Kika (art work). Stéphane Ernst is the photographer this time.
- M’Com Musique for the pressing of the records
- Jeff Loch, talented director from Lyon. Jeff directed 3 beautiful video clips for Lion says, the last one is right here :
Finally we want to draw your attention to the « All or Nothing » policy on this platform: we have to reach 4500E, otherwise your money will not be cashed.
If we get more than 4450 Euros :
If happily for us we get more than 4450E, we will able to fund a second video clip and release a second single a bit later !
Shopping time :
Talking about the records, the work art is still being taken care of. You may therefore discover the album cover shortly !
We have bundles for all budgets. You will also be able to order the first album again, CD or vinyl record. Any pre-order matters and will be taking part in the release process. We are confident that you should receive the records in February. Don’t forget you can offer a beautiful disc and make your friends discover a new band.
Huge thanks in advance, to all of you.
Come on now, it's time to go shopping !
