About The Band
Over the course of self and state-ordered quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020, Juan R Leõn found time to write a short parable inspired by an article on faith and the “new normal”. Not being confident in his own singing abilities, Juan reached out to friend and poet Corey Stano to provide the vocal performance on “The Rhino And The Oxpecker”. Corey turned in a shining performance full of subtle nuances and dramatic pauses which served the material well. Her tonality and cadence had produced exactly what the project needed and soon the two were collaborating with Corey providing the written prose and vocal performance while Juan composed and performed the music.
Such were the beginnings of Stanislav & The Lion.

Corey Stano: Vocal performance, spirit guide, all poetry except where noted
Juan R Leõn: NS Stick, Stick, bass, synths, percussion, soundscapes, other noise
