Bio

Little Flame's song writer Alinta, aged 7 and equipped with with a marble toy device which doubled as percussion, a red tape recorder and whooping cough inflicted vocals, penned her first song "The Rabbit of the Moon". In the years that followed, toys were put aside, a guitar was picked up and of course the cello man that is Jesse Martin came along. The inspiration behind the songs shifted from rabbits to politics, environmental devastation, big life questions, small life questions, adult dramas, astrophysics and admittedly, love. Little Flame are based in Melbourne writing and performing their own songs. If you have a few minutes please take a listen, your feedback is always welcome and appreciated. Thanks and enjoy.
