“A heartwarming music collection with a strong positive theme about the joys and bonds of friendship, Navigate is highly recommended.” – Midwest Book Review

Navigate is the second family-friendly album from high-spirited Gainesville band Bears and Lions. Featuring rock and Americana folk music that listeners of all ages will enjoy, Navigate tells an overarching story about animal characters who take a boat across the sea to help a friend in need. A heartwarming music collection with a strong positive theme about the joys and bonds of friendship, Navigate is highly recommended. The tracks are “Jonas the Walrus”, “Little Boat”, “Hercules”, “Setting Sun”, “Pirate Pete”, “Get What You Get”, “Navigate”, “Lighthouse”, “Merman Named Jim”, and “Animal Land”.

First Review for our new album “Navigate”!

The overall message of the album is one of unity, perseverance and friendship. Musically, the album’s sound is reminiscent of The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper album mixed with a tinge of The Kinks’ Village Green Preservation Society. A few stand out tracks are Little Boat, Navigate, and Merman Named Jim, but it should be noted that all the songs on the album dovetail nicely to create a seamless musical adventure. Navigate drops 3/23/18.

Sleepyhead gets it’s first review!

Bears and Lions, oh my! The duo (who dress like the erstwhile creatures) have a brand new EP of two songs, “Sleepyhead” and “Depot Park.” If you like Wilco but wished they skewed more for kids, you get the general idea of their sound. Still, they make a funky pair. Bears and Lions should be natural enemies, yet they have banded together to make a band.

Itty-Bitty Review: We’re a Club in the Woods – Bears and Lions

My introduction to the Florida-based duo Bears and Lions was at Kindiefest a couple years back, where a couple guys dressed up as, yes, a bear and a lion (in ’70s era basketball uniforms, no less), strode up on stage and proceeded to play one of the more goofy sets of songs I’d heard in kids music. Jangly, southern-fried guitar-pop songs about jumping out of airplanes, man’s best friend, and PAN! CAKE! SWEEP! STAKES! (Just listen to “Pancakes” all the way through, trust me.)
