Noah Lennox adopted the name Panda Bear in the late '90s, when he drew a picture of a panda on one of his first bedroom studio recordings. He grew up in Pennsylvania, went to college at the Boston University, and eventually found his way to New York City, where he met his future Animal Collective bandmates Avey Tare, Geologist, and Deakin. In addition to his work with Animal Collective, Jane, and Together, Lennox has released several solo albums. Young Prayer, an album largely influenced by the death of his father, was released in 2004, and Person Pitch, Lennox's second album on the Paw Tracks label, followed three years later. For his next solo album, Lennox made the decision to move away from samplers towards a more guitar-heavy sound. Working with producer Sonic Boom, Lennox released his fourth solo album, Tomboy, in 2011. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi
