The return of the Lion Bear Fox trio from Vancouver in Canada, who were last here in 2017, will see another highly accomplished delivery of folk, rock, pop and a spoonful of West Coast growl. The soud is massive, the vocals powerful and the songs cogent. All three members, Christopher Arruda (lion), Cory Woodward (bear) and Ryan McMahon (fox) are songwriters and soloists. They met up on tour in 2012. Their vocals, musical ideas and ambitions matched, and the band Lion Bear Fox was born. In 2013, they made the EP We’d Be Good Men with six of their own songs and one cover, Ray LaMontagne’s Henry Nearly Killed Me. The release drew attention from Vancouver to Halifax and sent the trio off on a tour of Canada. In February 2017, the trio put out the album Lion Bear Fox. One Canadian reviewer wrote: “The whole album shows the high quality of Lion Bear Fox’s storytelling. Their versatility shines through in every song.” Their only Danish festival concert in 2019.
