“Identity,innovation,truth pioneer, spiritual, justice, community, intentional, creative, family, committed. Smallgate artists are visual, musical, theatrical, entrepreneurial people determined to affect change and are consistently carving out possibility where there does not seem to be any.”- Gary Adolphe.

Jacob and Lily have enjoyed playing among the Canadian folk community and folk festivals as well as receiving a Canadian Folk Music Nomination Best New/Emerging Artist for their debut album The Cathedral.
