A dynamic fusion of feel-good and deep emotion
Big Little Lions is the ferocious songwriting duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten. Both successful singer/songwriters in their own right, they met while both on a conference songwriting member success panel and then a couple of years later started the band from afar, with Helen based on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and Paul in Cincinnati, OH.

It was while Paul was producing for Helen's JUNO Award winning album that they became Big Little Lions and together they have won many awards including 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition, the top prize of Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and they won a Canadian Folk Music Award for Ensemble of the Year.

Their songs are a dynamic fusion of feel-good and deep emotion that leave the listener with a strong emotional reaction.

Shawna Caspi sings of love, travel, home, and heart, distilling each experience into a series of vibrant snapshots, colored with humor and grace and arranged with care and craft. Her latest release, Apartments for Lovers, is a solo guitar and voice album that showcases her rich voice and remarkable fingerstyle guitar technique.

"The power of one person and one instrument - engaging and exciting in itself. I believe that's the root of folk music", Caspi says.

On Apartments For Lovers, Shawna creates delicate, quiet moments that are vulnerable and accessible even when she's writing about someone else. Her songs are snapshots - moments that may appear small, but which subtly carry weight and offer greater depth thanks to her well-crafted lyrics.

"Caspi’s compositions stand out as beautiful, complex and intricate.” – NOW Magazine
