Lion and Full Circle is a perfect example of separate but equal parts making up a whole. Three separate entities, all hailing from Philadelphia, and five diametrically different personalities combined to form a unique group. Lion is an accomplished producer, and songwriter, who has been making his mark in the music world for some time. He's worked with numerous artists representing various musical genres. Now he's emerging from behind the scenes to wear the hat of performer as well. Quiet Storm is a perfect description for Lion. He's a laid back kinda guy, unassuming but confident. No one would suspect the musical cyclone brewing just beneath the surface. Full Circle not only represents the concept of the album, but also Lion and the other member's career path.
To sum it all up, Lion and Full Circle is a group of dynamic individuals who had separate career goals, but their fates had something different in mind.
