Opening for PHOX at The Roxy was a Daniel And The Lion, and we were there to snap some pics!
Daniel And The Lion played a solid set. Though they play as a quintet, their sound was warm and stripped-down. I enjoyed the playful energy their lead singer, Daniel Pingrey, injected into the performance.
Perhaps there was a bit of lull in the middle of their performance when they played a very slow and quiet ballad (it was a little too downtempo and had me feeling a bit anxious), but I was generally impressed with the potential of this band. Maybe a little bit The Head And The Heart mixed with some Bon Iver?
These guys are touring all summer (2015) so check them out on Facebook or Twitter to see if they are playing in your neck of the woods any time soon.
