About

What makes a Wry Lion? well, you can come close by combining the technique and theatricality of Tech N9ne with the lyrical depth of Mos Def & Eminem, then, throw in a uniquely British quirkiness and a singing voice that is equal parts Mike Skinner, David Bowie & Ian Dury. Musically, he is one of the most dynamic artists working today, mixing his unmistakable vocal style with beats that mix rock, blues, funk, soul & jazz with a molten core of hip hop, combining these influences with a knack for pop songwriting that puts him light years ahead of most of his contemporaries on the UK Hip Hop scene.

Wry cut his teeth playing guitar and singing in bands throughout his teens, taking influence in equal parts from punk bands from The Clash to Black Flag & Blues artists like Howlin' Wolf & Muddy Waters. It wasn't until a chance meeting with Ex-Blockheads guitarist Wilko Johnson that Wry discovered the power of spoken word in music through the works of Ian Dury, who also inspired Wry as a performer that coped with a disability throughout his life, from that springboard he developed a love of poetry and Hip Hop, slowly developing a unique rap style of his own. Combining his talent for lyricism with an impressive level of musicianship honed from a decade of experience playing with bands of widely varying genres, Wry Lion is without a doubt one of the most unique and exciting artists in the UK today.

Be yourself, happy in your own skin it's beautiful
Whatever your destiny i'm sure your more than suitable
