Lioness are an art-dance/rock trio fronted by the alluringly mysterious Vanessa Fischer (vocals and synths) and backed by the thunderous rhythms created by Ronnie Morris (bass and synths) and Jeff Scheven (drums and machines). Their sound is a mix of dark electro dance and sinister rock that has been causing hips to sway and heads to turn. “What You Do Will Come Back To You” is a karmic warning we all should heed…

In our electronic age when DIY is the order of the day for new bands, Lioness take it one step further by encapsulating their sound and imagery into one aesthetic. They produce the sound as well as craft and direct the costumes, videos, photos and stage sets. They are a post-modernist trio of artists: a director, a costume designer and a scholar. Scheven and Fischer have worked closely as director and designer for the likes of TV on the Radio, Dragonette and Death From Above 1979 as well as on the Lioness videos.

"…sweaty death-disco grooves that are as contagious as the common cold."-Eye Weekly

"Lioness is your response to your jaded friend’s claims that indie rock ain’t got no soul." -XLR8R

"Combining the massive elements of Led Zeppelin with the bleeps-and-blips skinny jeans dance craze, Lioness... seems well-poised to pick-up Toronto's coolest band-ever mantle..." -The National Post
