”Lion” is a song about the lion-hearted soul adventurer within each of us. Its message speaks of finding courage and overcoming anything that stands in the way of our fullest potential and power. Its invitation is to follow your true calling and brave the path less traveled, as opposed to the one prescribed by others. This music medicine amplifies courage and the power to find your true roar, to express it boldly and to let it be heard by all those who need it.
“Lion” is the first single and title track from Chris Assaad’s new collection of songs. The album was recorded and produced by Joby Baker (Deva Premal & Miten, Alex Cuba) at Baker Studios in Victoria, BC in the summer of 2019.
Where’s it gonna come from? Courage
What you tryin’ to run from? Courage
Where’s it gonna come from now, now? Lion… Lion… Lion… Lion.
We follow the crowd our whole lives Then we wake up one day open our eyes See our reflection in the water realize
Taught all along that we were sheep but deep inside
