Trombone funk and bass punk collide in Little Lizard's cold-blooded groove. Brassy and offbeat the duo, consisting of multi-instrumentalists Lizz D. and Shea Daniel, have tossed the book out the window to develop a fresh instrumental sound. Self-described as "Funk Punk" Little Lizard uses trumpet, trombone, synthesizers, electric bass, and a sampler to create tuneful melodies and boogie inducing beats. Whether enjoying one of their albums or witnessing them seamlessly switch instruments live Little Lizard will get your body moving.
Coming from a brass band background Lizz D. and Shea Daniel founded Little Lizard in 2017 as a way of incorporating horns back into their lives. After playing with the idea for sometime Shea Daniel eventually put together the Break a Tooth and My City Is Cherry Flavored EPs. Laying the foundation for the "Funk Punk" sound the duo began perfecting their style live while writing material for their debut LP Premium Vanilla. Released in 2019 Premium Vanilla is a tropical-tinged, rhythmically dense adventure showcasing Lizz D.'s low-down thump and Shea Daniel's effected trombone. Presenting a polished brass and bass groove the album explores new territory with a menagerie of wildlife samples and analog synth patches.
Inspired by their love for science fiction movies and paranormal TV shows Little Lizard is currently getting out-of-this-world on their sophomore album EARTHLINGS. Releasing the singles "Star Child" and "Take Me to Your Leader" the duo has expanded their sound through FM synthesis, 808 beats, vocal samples, theremin, and dueling brass with Lizz D. on trumpet. Arriving Spring 2020, keep your eyes to the skies because Little Lizard could be touching down in your town.
