About Stanislav & The Lion
n|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 of 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.

Corey Stano: Vox, ProseCorey’s ability to combine beauty in prose with poetic and knife-edge imagery is at the core of S&TL’s landscape. It is both the fulcrum and impetus behind the direction of the music. Her rich voice is the “beau idéal” of the project delivering a performance that mesmerizes and captivates the listener.

Juan R Leõn: Sounds
Using various and unique instruments like the Chapman Stick, NS Stick, Alvara Zen 10, Native American Flutes, synths, percussion, vox effects, and field recordings, Juan creates a sonic backdrop for Corey’s visions.
