New Artist: Lion & Bear

Introducing another new CCM group... LION & BEAR. Hailing from southern California, Lion & Bear - a moniker inspired by the biblical story of David & Goliath - is a family band to its core. Members Andrew Enos and Michael Landingham are brothers-in-law (Michael is married to Andrew's sister), both work at their respective churches, and both have experienced devastating losses. They also both share that their unthinkable tragedies were followed by a stark realization: most people don’t know how to grieve. Lion & Bear was fashioned from the ashes of their tremendous anguish as an effort to not only find healing but to share that healing with others.

Lion & Bear is so new that their website is still "Under Construction" They will release their self-titled EP September 11 (an obvious choice of date for songs dealing with grief). The four-song EP will offer songs of hope and the unending love of Jesus, songs that offer praise along with lamenting, proclaiming the truth that pain is messy and uncomfortable. Their message is clear - if you go to the depths of your humanity, God will be there.

LION & BEAR have a nice, easy listening sound and their first release, "Held By Your Love", is very good. They have just released a video of another new song, "Stillness".
