Started in 2009 in Washington, DC, Daddy Lion was originally Jeremy Joseph's lo-fi bedroom pop solo project. With his self-titled debut EP and his full-length follow-up Habitat, Jeremy gained the attention from many blogging and other press outlets including NPR Music, The Washington Post, Popdose, Washington City Paper, and Review Stalker, and signed a record deal with 24 Hour Service Station Records. In 2012 Jeremy moved to Columbia, SC to pursue a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of South Carolina and transformed Daddy Lion into a band with local musicians Randal Franklin, Bart Ballington, and Chris Johnson whom he met at a local music club, Conundrum Music Hall, and on Craigslist. In 2014 they recorded their first EP together, Perpetual Calendar. They are now working very hard on their full-length follow-up, which they are recording in Chris's home studio. Daddy Lion have released six albums and EPs, seven original music videos and have been billed with Tim Kasher (Cursive), Shonen Knife, The Growlers, Evangelicals, Futurebirds, and American Aquarium.
