Big Little Lions turn helpless apprehensions into hopeless optimism with their latest album Alive and Well, a collection of songs that manage to capture this moment in time in a way only a songwriter can.

The pairing of two individually successful songwriters - Helen Austin and Paul Otten, Big Little Lions have continuously been recognized for their writing. Including 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition, Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and Ensemble of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Award. Alive and Well is their natural progression and comes at a time when the role of the songwriter seems as important as ever.

With Austin based on Vancouver Island, BC and Otten based in Cincinnati, OH the duo proves that borders do not divide us and that art can bring us together.

Big Little Lions turn helpless apprehensions into hopeful optimism with their latest album Alive and Well - a collection of songs that manages to capture the cultural moment with clarity, compassion, and catchy choruses as only songwriters can.

Find your people / find your tribe / those you want to be beside,” the Big Little Lions sing on Find Your Tribe, the album’s opening track. Coming from this acclaimed duo, the line is equal parts lyric and philosophy. Big Little Lions are Helen Austin and Paul Otten, two successful solo songwriters and musicians who rose to greater heights after joining forces in 2013. Since roaring on to the music scene, Big Little Lions has won an armful of awards for their work including first place in the International Songwriting Competition, Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, and Ensemble of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

Their most cohesive project to date, Alive and Well delivers Big Little Lions’ signature pop-folk shimmer and irresistible rhythms with a new lyrical edge inspired by the polarity of our world. The album dances from songs that acknowledge human frailty and modern preoccupations to anthems of hope and resistance. Alive and Well turns the Lions’ illuminating songwriting to the tasks of buoying spirits, inspiring sing-a-longs, and lighting candles of optimism in difficult times.

Big Little Lions will release Alive and Well on Feb 23, 2018 and kick off a North American tour to connect audiences across the continent; a task that would be daunting for musicians with less experience bridging across borders. Fortunately, Big Little Lions are expert connectors. With Austin based on Vancouver Island, BC and Otten based in Cincinnati, OH the duo have been bridging geographic and cultural distances since their first collaboration when Otten produced Austin’s 2014 Juno-winning album ‘Colour It’. The thousands of fans they’ve gathered since agree, Austin and Otten have stumbled on a powerful musical chemistry. Big Little Lions have played renowned festivals including Shelter Valley, Islands Folk Fest, Mariposa, Summerfolk, the Alianait Arts Festival, the Paper City Music Festival, and the Vancouver Island Music Fest. Their songs have also been featured across Canada on CBC and in the United States. The Alive and Well tour will see the Lions perform across the Canadian prairies, around the Great Lakes and beyond, dotting a final line of concerts from Ohio all the way to Florida. Watching Big Little Lions on the stage, audiences will understand what the closing lyrics of Alive and Well proclaim so clearly, when people gather to share music, ‘love is all there is’.
