***LIVE SHOW VIDEO FOOTAGE*** iRon Lion performs hot original reggae songs!

Often times as working musicians/artists we get caught up in music and the rat race so deep that we forget to express ourselves from an original standpoint.However,in January and February I was blessed to do some shows with my bredren from VA and it was nice for that reason!Not only did we big up the king Bob Marley but we shared some original music with our hometown family and friends!

These video clips captures the vibes in Staunton where we dropped into some original material like “Reggae Party”,a hot reggae-rock club song which has exposure on international platform Reggaeville and “Good Time” aka “I don’t wanna hurt u girl”,a crowd favorite which features Lefty Luke on vocals also!Hand-crafted lovers lyrics promising to never hurt the girl of your dreams,with a bouncey reggae riddim,this song is rising in online & live popularity daily!A video is in our future plans as well as more live dates!

Check both videos out and leave us a comment on your thoughts and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to the IRON LION WORLD YOUTUBE channel,as we’ll be bringing more footage to you courtesy of I Vizion Films and friends!Also,let us know where you’re at and we’ll try our best to come perform in your area if you wish!Til then,blaze it!
