Lion Babe

Constantly embracing polarity, mixing and matching sounds and visuals to create something new and unique – LION BABE are the New York electro-soul duo formed of singer/songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey and instrumentalist and producer Lucas Goodman.

The band’s artistry showcases their ethos for fearlessly reworking and reinventing the familiar, combining it with their love of fantasy and the surreal, to make their own unique pieces of art; a new kind of soul. This ethos led LION BABE to become one of the most exciting breakthrough acts of the past couple of years, garnering rave reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Vogue, GQ, FAder, Paper, NYLON, Wonderland, New York Times, Noisey and I-D.

With an impressive 35 million plus streams across their audio and visual streaming sites in less than two years after releasing their debut EP and Jillian confidently confirming her place as an international style and beauty influencer with huge campaigns with MAC Cosmetics - creating her own eyeliner for the brand - and as Pantene's ambassador, appearing in their print and TV commercials, the sky is the limit for these rapidly rising stars.
