My Starving Lion Biography
“My Starving Lion is nothing but a Journey. It has a beginning and it has an end, but the most important part we have is now. Today is where we live; today is where we truly make a difference.”
Upon the very eve their highly anticipated release of their debut album, Odyssey, My Starving Lion’s creator lives out the statement in every facet of life. Now hailing from a tiny Midwest town, Adam Spanier recalls a journey thousands of miles long in the making just to reach this point.
“I’ve lived all over; big cities, small towns, in the middle of nowhere, you name it, I’ve lived there. It bothered me at first, never really being able to settle in to one place; never really having a place to call home, but now I know every new location has just been another notch in the belt that made this project what it is today.”
The premise itself shows clearly in the title of the release and throughout the entirety of the album’s musical content.
“I tried to make this an album, not just a bunch of songs scrapped together; to make it a complete representation of the Journey I’ve gone through just to create this record. Whether or not I succeeded is up to the listener, but my heart lives in every single song I’ve written, each one telling a tiny portion of the story of life we all experience everyday.”
Finally achieving worldwide release July 1st, 2011, Odyssey will be the final testament to an emotional but enjoyable process over 12 months in creation.
“It’s been a long hard process, but one I would never trade for anything. Only through journeys like this do we truly find out who we are; what we’re made of. Where we finally find out that, at the very bottom, things are always the clearest.”
Through the hard work, late nights and frustration, one hope always remains.
“I know anyone can do this. All someone needs is a computer, a microphone and a little time. But in the end, my hope is that this music will touch the lives of those who hear it, near, far and wide. People often ask me why I do this; why subject yourself to such frustration and tedious creation and recreation? That question really bugged me for awhile. Was it for fame, riches, glory? I didn’t know for so long, but in the end I realized all I hope to do is have the listener hear and be touched by the songs that mean so much to me. I want as many people to hear as possible and to leave a mark where there wasn’t one before.”
