Big Little Lions, who consists of Helen Austin and Paul Otten, is releasing their debut EP, Paper Chase, on May 6th. This Canadian/Ohian songwriting pair met at a conference songwriting member success panel and within a couple of years, the band was created. Helen and Paul’s music has got this folksy-pop-acoustic sound that is popular right now so they should have no problem reaching success.
Even before releasing any music, Big Little Lions has been featured in various TV placements. Their song “This Road With You” has appeared in MTV’s Catfish and ABC’s The Vineyard, as well as three Ikea commercials.
On the upcoming release, Otten tells us, “This EP is a perfect example of the power of music. The songs are a collaboration between 2 people that barely know each other, but share a kindred musical heartbeat. The result is a collection of songs that radiate joy and sound like they were written by 2 people that were destined to make music together. I can’t wait for people to hear what Helen and I have created.” Austin adds, “I hope that the music will put a smile on everyone’s face. I want the songs to make fans feel positive about life.”
