The band was formed by Ronnie Morris and Jeff Scheven, former rhythm section of controller.controller (Paper Bag Records) and No Dynamics' vocalist Vanessa Fischer. Lioness released their debut self-titled EP, Lioness on October 21, 2008 on New Romantic.
Their sound combines dark disco grooves of Scheven's heavy drumming with Morris' unique bass sound and is conspicuous for its lack of guitars. Fischer draws upon jazz, old soul and blues, roaring over layers of electronic squall. On stage, they are a synthesis of electronic rock band and performance art project, a drum and bass wall of sound bathed in red light.
In 2009, Lioness took part in an interactive documentary series called City Sonic. The series, which featured 20 Toronto artists, had them talk about Toronto’s Masonic Temple and the band's attraction to the mystery of the Freemasons.
