Ugly Lion Bio/Background:
Ugly Lion is a 5 Piece Progressive Reggae Band from Dallas, Texas. Since their inception in 2009 the band has created a following in the region through extensive touring and self-promotion. The band released their first EP, The Ugly Truth in July of 2009. Following the release, the boys toured the mid-west and the south relentlessly and within a few short months created a growing fan base.
The band has dedicated themselves to booking, promoting, and funding their endeavor, including creating the opportunity to share the stage with many of the most popular reggae acts in the world today. Such acts include: SOJA, The Original Wailers, The Melodians, The Mighty Diamonds, The Agrolites, Collie Buddz, Tribal Seeds, Cas Haley and The Movement among many others.
Ugly Lion went on to professionally record and release their second EP Roots of Revolution in January 2010. They released their first full production music video Worriers shortly after. Energized by the widespread positive reception of their message, the band is heading back to the studio to record the follow-up to the Roots of Revolution EP.
