Biography Picture     Mama Lion was a blues-rock band formed by Canadian producer Neil Merryweather and Los Angeles-born singer-songwriter Lynn Carey.

     Merryweather, Carey, and Hall then formed the band Mama Lion in 1972, featuring Carey on lead vocals. Neil saw a restaurant called “Mama Lion’s” while driving in downtown LA and took the name for the new band. The band included on vocals and keyboards a young James Newton Howard, who would go on to become well-known as a writer and performer of movie scores (Pretty WomanPrince of TidesThe Dark Knight, etc.). 

    The band recorded two albums, "Preserve Wildlife" (which featured a controversial photo of Carey appearing to nurse a tiger cub) in 1972 and "Give It Everything I've Got" in 1973. As often with the Merryweather outputs, the music is a rather loose mix of blues and rock. 

    Mama Lion disbanded in 1973.
