Biography

Seattle, United States (1994 – 2006)

Pedro the Lion was an indie rock band from Seattle, Washington, comprising David Bazan and TW Walsh. Because of the biblical references in many of their songs, Pedro the Lion were seen by some to be a Christian band, but they did not consider the band to be such.

Pedro the Lion was formed by David Bazan in 1994 and released their debut EP Whole in April 1997. Initially a five piece, Pedro the Lion became essentially a solo effort of Bazan in the build up to recording of It’s Hard to Find a Friend. None of the other members were willing to make Pedro the Lion a full time venture. Many people joined Bazan live and in the studio with Casey Foubert and Johnathon Ford being the most notable. Johnathon Ford played bass on It’s Hard to Find A Friend. Casey Foubert co-wrote two songs and played bass on Control. Casey Foubert also played drums on many tours with Pedro the Lion. TW Walsh joined the band between Control and Achilles’ Heel.

Pedro the Lion formally announced their split in early January 2006. The split was amicable; Bazan and Walsh continue to be good friends. In fact, Bazan has admitted that their friendship has even been strengthened by the breakup.

Throughout his career, Bazan has been involved with such musical acts as Damien Jurado, Scientific, The Six Parts Seven, TW Walsh’s The Soft Drugs, Seldom and Unwed Sailor. He and TW Walsh, along with Frank Lenz of Starflyer 59, comprise the band Headphones.
