The pop-adjacent duo, Sleeping Lion, was formed by roommates Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth McGuire in Boston during the Spring of 2015. The first Sleeping Lion songs were written and produced remotely the following summer (via Skype) while Nate was living in Dobbs Ferry, NY and Noah was living in Rome, Italy. Their first single - “You Made Me” - was released in September (2015) and quickly generated hype around Boston. Their subsequent singles - “Rug” and “Generous” - were featured on various music blogs and Spotify playlists. In July (2016), they released their debut EP - 'Patient Creature' - which featured their unique combination of mellow electronic vibes with elements of folk and jazz. In April, they released their first single of 2017 - “Stop It" - which was featured on Majestic Casual's platforms and Spotify’s “Chill Vibes” playlist. Their last release, "How We Know", was featured on the Mr.SuicideSheep channel & playlists, and was the subject of a very successful remix contest. The duo has since produced official remixes for Zealyn, Lizzy Land, Axel Mansoor, LAOISE, VALNTN, and Sawyer. They have also opened for touring artists such as Brasstracks, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Phangs, Vesperteen, and Transviolet.
Brimming with a musical talent far beyond his 24 years and being preternaturally gifted with an ear for a great vocal hook, Simon XO can’t help but wear his heart on his sleeve. Raised on a selection of musical greats as diverse as Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, Wilco, Radiohead, and Nirvana, the San Diego singer-songwriter got his start playing along to records on his trombone, eventually getting accepted into USC’s prestigious Thornton School of Music and majoring in popular music. From there, fueled and inspired by his hero Neil Young’s uncompromising artistic vision, Simon decided that his musical mandate would forever bear witness to a warm, winsome honesty and encouraging his fans with his recounting of instantly relatable life experiences.
Listening to Cassie Marin’s music is like entering a blooming secret garden of deeply personal experiences. Refreshingly unique, Cassie combines the best parts of Moody R&B, Pop and Electronic elements to elicit a distinct emotion while maintaining airy, ambient and unassuming currents of bottomlessly dense sound. Slightly secretive and delicately feminine, every song Cassie releases is a single intricate flower plucked from her consciousness and added to her verdurous display.
