Christians & Lions is a DIY band from Boston, MA, formed in 2004 by brothers Ben and Sam. After a self-released CD single and several local shows, they recorded an all-acoustic version of what was to be their first album and were picked up by New York’s ECA Records. A short US tour followed, as did a more expanded, amplified lineup and their full-band debut, More Songs for Dreamsleepers and The Very Awake (2006). From 2007-2009 the band continued to tour and record sporadically, releasing another single (Gimme Diction, ECA Records, 2007) and an EP (2009’s Bird’s Milk on Floating Garbage Continent) which featured a rotating lineup of musicians (most notably longtime drummer Chris, guitarist Greg, and Sam and Ben’s multi-instrumentalist sister Kate) adding an eclectic mix of banjo, flute, mandolin, trumpet, organ, and more to the group’s hazy pop folk.
