Big Little Lions

The ferocious songwriting duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten, known as Big Little Lions, will be releasing their debut EP, Paper Cage, on May 6th, 2014. Their sound is a dynamic fusion of feel-good and deep emotion that leaves the listener with a strong emotional reaction - the result is sweet and soothing folk that has been described as "Pomplamoose meets Mumford & Sons."

Silent Lions

Conceived in Toledo OH with a home base in sister city Detroit, Silent Lions are the sinister two-some of Heavy Soul. Dean Tartaglia simultaneously plays Effected Octave Bass, Sampled Synths, and Manipulated Atmospheric Vocals, all while drummer Matt Klein grooves and thrashes beside him, often providing soulful singalong melodies and harmonies. Silent Lions’ live shows sound as thick and creamy as they do on record. Their music has been tagged as “Heavy Soul”, “Chill Punk”, and “Hall and Oates Stoner Rock.”

Silent Lions’ upcoming Sophomore EP, “The Compartments”, is a deeper exploration into genre manipulation. From Hip-Hop to Stoner Rock, Silent Lions create moments lo-fi chaos out of hi-fi clarity. With their unofficial third member Zach Shipps (Electric Six) producing, “The Compartments” takes enough risks to turn your head, but never strays from SiLi’s visceral, trade mark, super sub bass and drum sound.

Dean started making his mark nationally with Detroit local legends “The Sights” touring the U.S. and Europe supporting Tenacious D. Silent Lions are proud to continuously share bills with some of the best new artists in the scene (Mr. Gnome, Jamaican Queens, Bad Veins).
