Biography

“Their pop is the brand that reaches many corners of the sonic universe. The guitar playing; at times blistering, and at other points, insanely melodic, weaves each of the tracks from their LP, Good Enough For You, together with extreme flair.”

—Kelly Dearmore, The Squawker

“This band is a great example of good, homegrown American pop-rock. Tasty, jangly guitars and driving percussion.”

— The Oklahoma Daily

Fate Lions was founded in 2007 by songwriter and front man, Jason Manriquez. And, though the band has seen a few incarnations, it has ultimately evolved into a quartet of talented pop, rock and folk musicians culled from the North Texas independent music community.

“In about a year’s time, they’ve gone from so-so Americana act to one of the best pop-rock bands around. I’d have to tip my hat to ‘em anyway just for doing what they’re doing: conjuring up Nick Lowe-ish, R.E.M.-y, Elvis Costello-esque ‘80s radio pop. But the Fate Lions aren’t just aping some sort of distinctive sound from yesteryear to milk sympathy from old nostalgic tools like me. They’re being the real deal, expertly mixing jangly, cranky, countrified, Rickenbacker-tinged solos with snappy, toe-tapping beats and ooh-ahh-ing harmonies. ”

— Anthony Mariani, Fort Worth Weekly
