Bio

Little Quirks are teenage sisters Abbey and Mia Toole with their cousin Jaymi Toole. They formed in 2015 as they simply wanted to “write and play music that was fun to sing”.

The Central Coast trio have already achieved remarkable success with the release of their 2018 single ‘Crumbled’ which has garnered 2 million streams on Spotify.

Little Quirks sound blends folk and pop melodies with unforgettable family harmonies. Their new single ‘Life Wouldn’t Be’ which has already been played on Triple J’s Roots ‘n All will feature on their forthcoming EP ‘Cover My Eyes’ being released on their own label Runaway Records via Ditto Music. The EP was recorded at Hercules Studios in Sydney and produced by Wayne Connolly (Boy & Bear, Cloud Control, All Our Exes Live In Texas).

The video for “Life Wouldn’t Be” was directed by Linda Ung (Dean Lewis, Ellie Drennan) and it shows the band performing the uplifting track at their exuberant best.

Little Quirks will promote their EP with an East Coast headline tour as well as performing at BIGSOUND Festival, Dashville Skyline Festival and Lost Lands Festival.

Announcing their headline tour today, Abbey from Little Quirks says “We're sooooo excited about playing our first headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. We can’t wait to share these new songs and make new friends."

Little Quirks are extremely comfortable performing live, whether busking at farmer’s markets or on large stages supporting the likes of The Teskey Brothers, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Alex the Astronaut, Jack River, Busby Marou, and Xavier Rudd. Their live show is staggeringly energetic for a young folk band.

Coming from a long line of musical talent, Little Quirks have drawn much inspiration from their parents and grandparents who also used to play in bands together. Additionally, they recently welcomed Jaymi’s brother Alex into the band on bass and backing vocals, resulting in a potent familial line up!
