Big Little Lions
Where: Chemainus, BC
Never let anyone convince you that long-distance relationships, musical or otherwise, can’t work. Big Little Lions is proof that anything is possible.
Comprised of B.C. resident Helen Austin and Paul Otten, who calls Cincinatti home, the pair first came together when Otten produced Austin’s 2014 JUNO Award-winning album, Colour It. It was amidst that collaboration that the folk-inspired Big Little Lions was born.
The last few years have seen a flurry of acclaim come their way, including a top prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Ensemble of the Year. Earlier this year, the duo released their latest studio offering, Just Keep Moving, another solid effort that should keep the awards and accolades rolling in.
