Pedro The Lion

After a shifting lineup, Pedro the Lion finally eventually became a one-man outfit. That man is David Bazan. A Seattle native, Bazan cut his teeth playing in hardcore bands before forming Pedro in 1995, taking the band's name from a character he made up for a possible children's book. Under the moniker of Pedro the Lion, Bazan creates melodic pop in the vein of Bedhead, Hayden, and Sebadoh, with a lyrical focus on relationships -- with both other people and God. Bazan also plays in the band Unwed Sailor with Johnathon Ford of Roadside Monument. Pedro the Lion's debut full-length album, It's Hard to Find a Friend, was released in 1998. An EP titled The Only Reason I Feel Secure shortly followed, and in early 2000 Pedro the Lion returned with Winners Never Quit on Jade Tree. In 2001, Jade Tree reissued the band's first two records, and Casey Foubert joined the band to handle bass, percussion, and keyboard duties for the next record, 2002's Control. In 2004, the band issued their most expansive album, Achilles Heel. Two years later, in early 2006, Bazan retired the Pedro moniker to continue on with solo work under his own name; the first "official" David Bazan release, the Fewer Moving Parts EP, appeared that July. Long-time collaborator and multi-instrumentalist T.W. Walsh moved on with his own project, the Soft Drugs, and returned to a career in software engineering. ~ Jason Nickey, Rovi

This is the real thing. Crisp, captivating, and a perfect snapshot of the s**t no one ever says out loud about tough situations. Just as good as the day I heard him when I was a scared 13 year old girl.

Why is all this Seattle base music from the 90's so depressing and droll ? It's like they knew Obama was in the future or something

Control: Most depressing album to listen to after a break up. But it's so good.

The Only Reason I Feel Secure EP was one of the few albums that never left my CD Player in highschool. 12 years later it still sounds as amazing as the first day i hear it...

control is beyond words. still haven't been able to find anything to match it. whiny is all the pop-punk screamo bs that's so common now.

The songwriting makes up for any misinterpret e d whining. I want Dave to finish his children's book so I can listen and read his stuff at the same time.

NEVER NEVER NEVER PLAY Pedro the crybaby Lion on ANY of MY STATIONS. You got that Pandora????? ? ? ?

Believe me, there are many, many whiny artists out there, and David Bazan is not one of them. His messages are clear, and lack the self importance that is related to whining.

I actually dug the stuff Bazan put out on Fewer Moving Pieces than most of the Pedro the Lion catalouge. Just seemed a little more mature in his song writing.

Listen to Headphones and Greg Laswell...Gr e g Laswell took over where David Bazan left off! David Bazan is no longer something worth watching since offcially making Pedro The Lion an official solo project.
