Bio

Little Quirks
“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 currently mid-way through their ‘Suzie Knows Tour’ where they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with legends Tim Rogers, Mark Seymour and Busby Marou amongst others as well as performing at festivals including ‘Grow Your Own’, ‘The Lighthouse Folk Festival’ and the celebrated ‘Mountain Sounds Festival’.
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 harmonies that combine to create their distinct ‘Little Quirks’ sound.
The Little Quirks have recently released their second EP, ‘Suzie Knows’ having their first single ‘Run Away’ played on Triple J’s ‘Roots ‘n All’ and their second single, ‘Unwinding’ added to the Triple J Unearthed playlist.
Last year they released their debut EP titled ‘Where we Hide’ and followed that with a run of shows as part of the ‘Where we Hide’ tour. The EP received great reviews from reviewers and fans. The song ‘About the World’ was picked up by many local and overseas radio stations and their song ‘Stolen Butterflies’ received Triple J airplay on the ‘Roots ‘n All’ Show.
“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
Originally buskers, the girls have recently attracted the attention of festival organisers and major artists which has seen them invited to share the stage with artists All Our Exes Live in Texas, Cloud Control, Alex the Astronaut, Sarah Mcleod, Jack River, Dragon, Mental As Anything and many more.
The Little Quirks have also developed quite a following from their unique cover versions and YouTube clips with some of their clips receiving over 80,000 views. They have also been featured in a local music documentary and have performed live on radio stations Star FM, Coast FM, Sea FM and Lake Macquarie FM.
Lineup:
Abbey – vocals/acoustic guitar
Jaymi – vocals/mandolin
Mia – vocals/drums
Alex - bass (for big gigs)

A whole lot of progression in a short of amount of time! This group's gelling really nicely. Affecting and full indie-folk.

Can I please be apart of this family - O.M.G

This is a really solid song that takes you places. Looking past the beautiful vocals you unfold the darkness and light in this track holds. Truly enjoyable listening.
