Bio

“These Quirks have the nous and charm of the greats. Deft songwriting and performers of depth and levity. Watch ‘em rise” – TIM ROGERS (You Am I) Jan ‘18

“Comprised of sisters Abbey, Mia and cousin Jaymi, Little Quirks have established a strong following along Australia's eastern seaboard thanks to their intimate and unpretentious indie-folk approach” – THE REVIEW Oct ‘17

The Little Quirks are a young, all-girl trio made up of sisters, Abbey and Mia, and their cousin Jaymi from the New South Wales, Central Coast. Although the girls are quite young they have been playing together for over three years. They have a raw indie-folk sound with a unique blend of mandolin, acoustic guitar and drums (and occasionally cousin Alex on bass). They have a natural ability to produce mesmerising three part harmonies that combine to create their distinct ‘Little Quirks’ sound.

Some of the highlights so far have been sharing the stage with artists Tim Rogers, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Cloud Control, Alex the Astronaut, Sarah Mcleod, Jack River, Mark Seymour, Busby Marou, Xavier Rudd, Dragon, Mental As Anything and many more. Festivals played so far are Lighthouse Folk Festival, Long Jetty Street Festival, Mountain Sounds Festival, Reverb Festival (Perth), Nimbin Festival, Grow Your Own Festival, Forster), Meatstock Festival (Sydney Showground) with more coming up! (announcements coming soon!)

The Little Quirks have so far released two EP’s (‘Where We Hide’ and ‘Suzie Knows’) and a single, ‘Crumbled. They have had several songs played on Triple J’s Roots’n’all and their single ‘Crumbled’ (released in April) got to number one on the Triple J Unearthed charts. The song was also played on many national and international radio stations including Triple J. So far it has had 500,000 Spotify streams, and rising! (It’s also currently a finalist in a Nashville based international songwriting competition).

“If the definition of indie-pop is pop songs that won’t get on the radio, this one is a perfect example. It’s a charming jangle-pop tune that has everything you could want: pep, charm, great melodies, fun arrangements, and an overall sense of wonder.” – ‘About the World’ review by INDEPENDENT CLAUSES (Internet Blog) NOV ‘16

The Little Quirks have also developed quite a following from their unique cover versions and YouTube clips with some of their clips receiving over 150,000 views. Their Facebook page currently has over 5000 followers from around the world and is rising everyday.

Lineup:
Abbey – vocals/acoustic guitar
Jaymi – vocals/mandolin
Mia – vocals/drums

“A talented youthful and sweet trio of siblings (Abbey and Mia) and a cousin (Jaymi) that arrange music in a way that it’s so inviting and make for a beautiful home for them to guide us with that melodious voice as we are taken over by their soundscape.” – WOLF IN A SUIT (Internet Blog)
