Big Little Lions is the duo of the Comox Valley’s JUNO award winning Helen Austin and Cincinnati’s Paul Otten. They have only met once while on a member success panel at a music conference but have been writing and recording together over the wonders of the internet for close to 2 years.
In that time they have released their debut EP, Paper Cage which received much attention from radio stations and blogs including Ryan Seacrest’s website. Individually Helen And Paul ‘s music has had hundreds of placements on TV shows, ads and movies and now their collaborative efforts can be heard on commercials including IKEA, MTV and network TV channels.
They recently won 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition and also won the Song of the Year, the top prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
This August will be the first time they play live and they will be joined by Helen’s daughter Daisy on fiddle and vocals, and by Paul’s brother Brian on drums, making it quite the family affair. Opening for them will be Comox Valley’s own songbird and singer/songwriter, PK Tessman.
Their main show will be at the Filberg Park and Lodge on the new Comox Rotary stage on Sunday August 24th from 4pm – 6pm as an extra add-on to the concert series. Tickets are $15 and are available from Blue Heron Books, Laughing Oyster Books and Long & McQuade, as well as at the gate on the day.
