Biography

Experimental. Electronic. Classical. Jazz. Post-punk. Genres are ubiquitous in music. Artists are defined by a literal sound or musical genus. Some may deem this labeling as legitimization. For With Lions, it’s regulation. No walls or limitations, the East Coast duo is never at the mercy of a particular sound. Changing their genre as they go along, With Lions have amassed an entire library of music to release four, distinct EPs a year.

Formed by vocalists Christian Celaya of Benzos and Lake Trout’s Anthony “Woody” Ranere, With Lions began in 2006 when the two bonded while on tour together. Music school grads, both had a parallel understanding of the technology, production and mixing of music, which connected them beyond their respective band genres. A degree in computer music from Baltimore’s Goucher College and day job creating and producing television and film scores, Ranere produced Benzos’ second album before the two decided to birth With Lions in 2007. Their common thread would soon echo more big and small screen scores moving through everything—industrial, folk, pop, hip hop and beyond—as both produced music for TV (“CSI,” “Nikita,” commercials for the Discovery and Travel Channels), fashion (Victoria’s Secret) and film (“Chasing the Swell”).

Epic and cinematic, each EP is a mini score.
