about

Lion Horse is the brain child of Cameron Whitlock and Matt Watson. Rising out of the ashes of former southern rock project, Lion Horse Cavalry, Whitlock and Watson take a unique approach to audio. Relying on creativity and texture rather than virtuosity, the Lion Horse sound is intricate yet familiar and simple.

Their EP is appropriately titled A Ridiculous Beginning as it is the first attempt for the two writers to produce and recorded their music. Although they had been in the process of writing several songs for years, the Music Business Program at the University of Georgia finally gave them the opportunity to record an EP. A Ridiculous Beginning is a 3-song 15 minute long adventure through space and time. From spacey echo and reverb to hard driving distortion, A Ridiculous Beginning paints a picture of adventure, war, space, heroism, and self-doubt. It’s a luscious soundscape that is futuristic yet retro.

When all is thought lost, and all hope is gone, the Lion Horse will rise from the ashes, and the people, they will rejoice.

Track Name: Replicators
All of you are exactly the same
A copy of a copy of a copy of an empty frame
You're just like everyone else
You're body's a blank canvas and your mind a hollow shell

All you do is multiply

All for one and one for all
Arm your children or your kingdom will fall

Shapeless matter, tiny building blocks
Molded into something different just to join the flock
You marched straight on you picked your flag
The song fades out and stops the breath you drag

All you do is multiply

All for one and one for all
Arm your children or your kingdom will fall
Fall, fall, fall, fall.
Track Name: IWHBYD
My brothers, I watch them die
Oh the flames blaze on
Through the dark cold night

They came one by one
Raining down on us like fire from the sun
All my brothers stood their ground
The devil himself couldn't strike us down

Ribbons of confetti
Stretch across the sky
Imminent destruction
Make a noble sacrifice

I am your shield
I won't leave you behind
I am your sword
We're gonna make it out alive

They came one by one
Raining down on us like fire from the sun
All my brothers stood their ground
The devil himself couldn't strike us down
Track Name: Water Level
I found a way to go to sleep again
I drift off with a thought in my head
I'm surrounded by oceans of color
I plunge in and hold my breath
The water level is rising
The water level is rising
It's rising, it's over my head

Pull me out I've got to get some air

I wake, but I wish I was still dreaming
Now drowning doesn't seem so bad
Everyday life, everyday life is mundane
It's about time, it's about time we break the same

Throw me back into the ocean, I wanna drown
Hold my head under, I'm going down
