California rock comes in a variety of styles and flavors stretching across the Cali landscape from San Diego to Sacramento. Some of the most memorable and favorite alt-rock acts have emerged from the Golden State in the past few decades like Green Day, P.O.D. and Red Hot Chili Peppers. From the town of Bakersfield come a rock quartet combining ska, rock, reggae, and progressive sounds: Lions Named Leo. With a sound amalgamation of Reel Big Fish’s vocals (Aaron Barrett similarities) with melodic harmonies of Everclear and a Chad Smith sounding drum off, Lions Named Leo bring the best sounds of California to light.
Lions Named Leo create powerfully driven lyrical ballads infused with solid rock grooves that have you singing along in no time.
A great song to check out from Lions Named Leo include “Can I Feel Enough To Know,” keying in on that slower rock groove that will recall The Chili Peppers “Tear” for you. Hear it here:
More of their music, bio, and tour information is available on their Reverbnation page.
**We do realize that Everclear is not a California band, but that West Coast sound still prevails.
