Bio

Little Quirks is a band of two sisters and a cousin who grew up not far from each other in regional New South Wales, Australia. Singing and playing various instruments they found lying around the house after the demise of their parents’ touring rock band, the three teenagers, Jaymi, Abbey and Mia gradually formed a tight musical bond and began playing shows.

At just 16 years of age Mia (drums) is the youngest in the group. She is often stopped by security when entering venues to perform, but what they lack in fake IDs, Little Quirks make up for in hooks, harmonies and explosive live energy. The band has a feisty new folk sound that bursts with boisterous melodies and pounding rhythms – think the bounding exuberance and stage craft of Mumford & Sons. The three have an almost psychic ability to blend their voices, drawing comparison to the sibling charms of First Aid Kit and The Staves.

Little Quirks’ first single ‘Crumbled’ has clocked up more than 2.5 million streams on Spotify since release in 2018. The follow-up EP ‘Cover My Eyes’ is out worldwide in January 2020. The band has played many festivals and supports for the likes of Xavier Rudd, The Teskey Brothers and The Preatures.

They cause a flutter whenever they play and have just announced an East Coast headline tour of Australia Jan-April 2020 including festival spots at Tamworth Country Music Festival and National Folk Festival.

I surely won't be the first to call these guys charming but it's a tag that sticks for Little Quirks. The uke and harmonies really win you over.

These Cenny Coast gals' harmonies are faultless. This one's going straight to the pool room.

Gorgeous and effortless. It's bright, it feels fresh and it stands out in such a beautiful way.
