Album Notes
Two Are Always Better Than One.

Jacob and Lily, Winnipeg’s newest folk/roots duo, is quickly turning heads and garnering rave reviews as they cross the country in a motor home packed to the rafters with unique percussion pieces and guitar gear.

Karla Adolphe’s soaring vocals layered over moving melodies and insightful lyrics and Caleb Friesen’s complex and compelling fusion-style rhythms create an intense atmosphere that captivates their audiences. With their unique and organic sound, Jacob and Lily are the freshest act to emerge from Winnipeg’s rich music community.

“Manitoba’s ‘Dynamic Duo’, Karla Adolphe and Caleb Friesen, deliver a one-two musical punch during a live performance”
Lindsay Jane, Singer/Songwriter, Winnipeg

After eight months of touring together in support of Karla Adolphe’s debut album Come Home, Caleb and Karla decided to merge their musical careers, and Jacob and Lily was born. Incorporating the cajon beat box, world percussion instruments and a partial drum kit, Caleb is the perfect compliment to Karla’s driving style and compelling voice which critics have compared to Martha Wainright, Ani DiFranco and Sarah McLaughlin. Having reached their goal of 1000 album sales and 100 shows in 10 months, Karla and Caleb have taken the country by storm.

“Remember this name for it won’t be long before Karla Adolphe will be mentioned in the same breath as others such as MacLachlan, Arden and Difranco...Adolphe rises above the rest on the strength of both her beautiful emotive voice and its application on nine simple aching songs...”
John Kendle, Uptown Magazine

The duo is thrilled to announce the release of their debut album The Cathedral, recorded on location in various Winnipeg venues hand picked to capture Jacob and Lily’s organic sound.

“(The Cathedral) is a poignant reminder that music is everywhere around us, and not limited to a studio setting. For a relatively new partnership, there is an audible chemistry between Jacob and Lily which is complemented by frequent flashes of brilliance in their

Winnipeg Fringe Festival, In Studio broadcast with Jonathan Love on California 103 in Calgary, the Fallout Artfest in Minneapolis.

“Karla and Caleb Friesen of Winnipeg opened up and they are phenomenal,
a bit of a central western gem”
Craig Cardiff, Singer/Songwriter, Ontario

Jacob and Lily’s songs have been selected for the Manitoba Roots Compilation and the Cafe 100 promotional compilation. They have also been featured and receive radio play on many college and mainstream radio stations, including CBC Radio One & Two, 730 CKDM in Dauphin, Cafe 100, 95.9 CKUW and 92.9 KICK in Winnipeg, 810 CJSR in Edmonton and California 103 in Calgary, as well as television programs like 807 Backbeat in Kenora and SHAW TV in Winnipeg.

“When I interviewed Jacob and Lily, first impression was...They are
passionate about thier music! After hearing them play I know why. Jacob and Lily are the REAL THING.”
Tracy Koga, Shaw TV, Winnipeg

Viewing art as a vehicle for conversation, relationship and community, Karla and Caleb are dedicated to causes that address important social issues, particularly those focused on children and justice, such as Hero Holiday and The Invisible Children. Caleb and Karla are also are members of JUSTARTISTS Winnipeg collective of socially active artists.

“I believe the key to being a great artist is to have a great love for the people who are listening. Karla Adolpe and Caleb Friesen are those types of artists”
Ben Pasley, Worship Circle Records & Blue Renaissance Creative Group

An album that will hold true through time
The cathedral is a brilliant album, one that I have listened to many times! It is an album that once inside creeps up at any given time. I think with time the general public will recognize this as a masterpiece!
