Genre: Pop Jam Rock
From: Columbia SC

Daddy Lion is a four-piece indie powerpop band from Columbia, SC. They have received praise from dozens of press outlets including NPR Music, The Washington Post, Washington City Paper, Charleston City Paper, Popdose, and many more. They have been billed with amazing bands including Shonen Knife, Tim Kasher (Cursive), The Growlers, Evangelicals, American Aquarium, Gringo Star, Futurebirds, and Susto. Their most recent release Learn to Have Nothing and You Will Have Everything (released January 2018) was entirely self-recorded and self-produced. The album’s title is a quote borrowed from the Tao Te Ching.
