Lion Babe is quite the duo. Consisting of sassy, lion-maned songstress Jillian Hervey (daughter of Vanessa Williams) and producer Lucas Goodman, the group boasts a unique, appealing chemistry. Since 2014 and their breakout single ‘Treat Me Like Fire’, Lion Babe have created an impressive music catalogue of career-defining tracks such as ‘Jump Hi’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ – taken from their 2016 critically acclaimed debut album ‘Begin’ - and have collaborated with some music favourites such as rapper / actor Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams and house music sibling duo Disclosure, who featured the band on their single ‘Hourglass'. In 2018, Issa Rae’s HBO Original Series, Insecure recruited LION BABE for their singles 'Hit the Ceiling' and 'Just Me', which were featured on Seasons 1 and 3.
Continually mixing music with fashion and art, the band have previously delivered show-stopping performances and DJ sets for the likes of Armani, Chanel, ELLE Style Awards, Whitney Museum’s Art Party and British Vogue
Hervey’s brassy vocals and eccentric aesthetic (e.g., the colossal amount of hair that bounces atop her head) paired with a leather-wearing, shyer-seeming, beat-making dude is what establishes the contrast that gives Lion Babe their appeal. Hervey is the face, the attitude, the lion of Lion Babe, while Goodman’s smart production bolsters the pair’s rhythmic infrastructure.
