Judah and The Lion

Judah and The Lion Joshua Black Wilkins
What Makes Judah and The Lion So Happy?

Judah and The Lion join us live today. They are a three-piece band from Nashville consisting of of Judah Akers (vocals and guitar), Brian Macdonald (mandolin), and Nate Zuercher (banjo). Like many new young bands from Music City they met at Belmont University in 2011. After a couple of EPs they released their debut full length Kids These Days in September of last year. One thing you will note is how upbeat these guys are lyrically. There is no way you can leave a concert with Judah and The Lion and not feel a little bit better than when you arrived!
