Big Little Lions is the Juno-award winning band of Paul Otten (Cincinnati, OH) and Helen Austin (Comox Valley) born out of a collaboration that won them a Juno Award in 2014.
Ever since then they have been cranking out infectious folk pop songs that are jam-packed with emotion along with
tight harmonies that sound like the product of two people working closely and side-by-side instead of living in different countries.
“The music of Big Little Lions — the duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten – is a blissful marriage of new folk and sophisticated pop. The award-winning songwriters have voices that blend like magic and whenever they make music together it’s the cue for a heady mixture of soul, spirit and fun.” – Mariposa Folk Festival
After winning Ensemble of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for their debut album, they are bringing that sound and a new album on a North West Coast Tour before heading out to play summer festivals.
They use every limb to bring a full band sound from just two people and this tour they also have their melodica playing, backing vocalist, fiddler, and Helen’s daughter, Daisy to add even more to their jubilant sound.
Their songs stay in your head long after hearing them so make sure to catch them as they start their tour in the Comox Valley starting on Tuesday May 10 at the Downtown Social Club on Cumberland Road (firstname.lastname@example.org), then Wednesday May 11 for a Denman Island House Concert (email@example.com) and finally Thursday May 12 at The Roy in Royston (firstname.lastname@example.org) before they head to the USA.
