Get Ready to Turn Up the Heat with Lion Babe This Tuesday, 08/16 at The Fox Theatre

By: Sierra Voss

Lion Babe duo Jillian Hervey (singer) and Lucas Goodman (producer/multi- instrument) are ready to turn up the heat at Boulder’s Fox Theater this coming Tuesday, 08/16. I have a feeling it’s going to be a hot one, as Lion Babe is known for their ravenous stage presence and lioness allure.

The duo shared their first single “Treat Me Like Fire” in December 2012. Soon after their release they locked in a record deal with Interscope and pushed out their first self-titled debut EP in 2014. This year, Lion Babe released their fourteen-track album Begin. Most recently, Lion Babe posted a summer mixtape titled, Sun Jolt on their Soundcloud.

Watch Lion Babe’s music video for “Jump Hi”:


Jillian Hervey’s striking style and luscious mane is hard to ignore. Her “wonderwoman”-esque vibe seeps into all the tracks on Begin with her fiercely silky vocal tone. Imagine mixing singers Nikka Costa, Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu together, and yep- that’s Hervey. Her voice punches, but then gently wraps around each note as she carries you smoothly through each powerhouse song.

Lucas Goodman is the beating heart of the duo, inspired by the work of producers J Dilla, Flying Lotus and Timbaland. He integrates soul, hip hop, and electronic beats in each Lion Babe track, making for a diverse and ever-changing sound.

Begin and Sun Jolt are just the start for this young and talented duo. So make sure to catch them this Tuesday night at The Fox!
