Biography

(1) Hailing from the unlikely small community of Belfast, Prince Edward Island, brothers John and Rob MacPhee and neighbour Colin Buchanan began playing music together at a very young age in a variety of garage bands. After meeting in high school, David Cyrus MacDonald was recruited and Paper Lions cemented with John and Rob filling the positions of lead vocals and bass respectively, Colin on lead guitar and David on drums.

After the release of their critically acclaimed, five-time ECMA nominated 2010 EP, Trophies, Paper Lions has literally been around the world. They performed at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and Paralympics, the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China, from Italy and Malta, to Nashville and New Orleans, as well as a series of shows that brought them from Goose Bay, Labrador, all the way to the most northern human settlement on Earth - Alert, Nunavut.

The Lions have seen their fair share of success on the home front as well. Their song Traveling was uploaded to a fledgling YouTube in 2006, and it’s not hard to tell when watching it. By December 2011, the heavily pixelated video had received 60,000 views. By May 2012, it had garnered over 1,000,000 views and continues to climb. The band decided to offer something to these new found fans, and started giving away their EP Trophies in exchange for an email address.
