Karla Adolphe is a powerful voice. Gifted with a remarkable ability and passion to ignite creativity and ingenuity, Karla Adolphe is proving to be an irreplaceable figure in the Canadian national music scene.
Karla is the force behind the folk duo Jacob and Lily. Unstoppable passion, a fierce commitment to their audience, relentless touring all elements which have founded Jacob and Lily as one of Canada’s newest must see acts.
In only a few moments this endearing duo will take you from tears to laughter; all the while gently weaving a tapestry of thoughtful, nearly spiritual moments which will linger long after the final note is played. With their unique and organic sound Jacob and Lily are the freshest act to emerge from Winnipeg’s rich music community.
Complex fusion-style rhythms and innovative, spontaneous songs create an electric atmosphere that captivates their audiences. Incorporating the cajon beat box, world percussion instruments and a partial drum kit, Caleb Friesen is the perfect compliment to Karla Adolphe’s soaring vocals.
Jacob and Lily have had a busy freshman year performing at an official showcase at the 2007 NXNE festival, 2007 & 2006 MARIA Manitoba Music Showcase at OCFF, Creston Valley Music Fest, Gateway Festival, Great Woods Music Festival, Harvest Sun Music Festival, Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Fallout Artfest in Minneapolis, The Harvest Moon Festival, Winnipeg Folk Festival Lunchour Series, SNACC Music in the Ruins Series, Winnipeg Folk Festival Young Performers Showcase, and the Winnipeg Folk Exchange Grand Opening.
