Digital Lizards of Doom is an alternative rock duo that features Gabriel Valentin on guitar, strings, and vocals and Gallie Fisher on mandolin, keys, and vocals. Their debut album, “Lizards and Labyrinths” sold 25,000 copies worldwide.
The singer-songwriters from America’s Finest City were touted in Forbes Magazine for their work as producers and performers within the genres of rock, dance, electronic and folk music as well as the world of pop culture.
Valentin created the “sci-fi thriller-inspired band” based on his storybook characters from his graphic novel “Digital Lizards of Doom” as a “massive love letter to everything pop culture and all things nerdy.”
They are thrilled to be chosen among the 40 performing artists at Springboard West Music Festival by Barry Coffing.
“I love the idea of gathering this mash of talent to be a part of something bigger,” said Fisher. “Springboard West gives artists the exposure that they need and deserve. We’re stoked to meet, network and support our fellow artists in our own backyard. We’ve enjoyed a group chat with the other artists so we already feel like family.”
“We’re honored to be chosen, knowing that we’ve created something that can make it through something so rigorous to then be shared with everyone else,” added Valentin. “We’re not taking any of this lightly. We’ve worked extensively to give the audience of mentors a totally wonderful, unforgettable, and fun performance.”
Valentin is working with Fisher to “build more than a music medium.”
“We’re building a universe to let everyone know that they can go as deep as they’d like to enjoy head bopping music,” he said. “Everyone’s welcome.”
“Our connection is meant to glean that useful spirit where everyone remembers what it felt like to be a kid and have that childlike wonder and fascination with the world,” concluded Fisher. “Digital Lizards of Doom is a very safe place to experience something fun and unique.”
