Big Little Lions - s/t Canadian New


Big Little Lions have been described as ‘a blissful marriage of new folk and sophisticated pop’. Prolific songwriting, infectious folk-pop style, and an offbeat, memorable live show. This award winning duo consists of Helen Austin and Paul Otten who, despite living thousands of miles apart, have found a way to connect and create music together. Despite being in two different countries, they have found common ground to share their message. Despite the pull to avoid the hard topics and pretend it’s all ok - they’ve chosen to speak out.

Call it destiny, or call it fate, call it a necessary progression for these modern times. Helen lives in British Columbia, Canada and Paul lives in Cincinnati, OH. But the distance provides the necessity to create in a new way. Using technology as their ally and their differences as their strength.

Elmsley is an instrumental acoustic duo out of the Ottawa Valley. This raw-sounding original project is made up of Jordan Hawn (Guitar) & Andrew Mulder (Bass), two musicians who have been playing in local Ottawa bands for the past 12+ years.

Their first release was a self-titled EP comprised of four songs (Eastfield, Living the Dream, On the Road, Homebound) recorded at Reverence Audio the summer of 18'. Since then, they’ve been sharing their finished material in pubs, breweries, college campuses and farmers markets across the valley. With a newly released music video done, (Shot by Shannon Hawn in Newboro, ON) Andrew and Jordan plan on playing as much music as they possibly can!
