It's Hard to Find a Friend is the debut full-length album by Pedro the Lion; a solid indie rock album with plenty of lyrical talent to spare. After a shifting lineup, Pedro the Lion eventually became a one-man outfit. That man is David Bazan. A Seattle native, Bazan cut his teeth playing in hardcore bands before forming Pedro in 1995, taking the band's name from a character he made up for a possible children's book. It's Hard to Find a Friend was originally released in 1998. Under the moniker of Pedro the Lion, Bazan creates melodic pop in the vein of Bedhead, Hayden, and Sebadoh, with a lyrical focus on relationships -- with both other people and God. In early 2006, Bazan retired the Pedro moniker to continue on with solo work under his own name.
