A few years ago, sisters Byll and Beth of much-loved folk-pop band The Little Stevies started playing around writing some children’s songs, inspired originally by the need to teach Byll’s three-year-old about the challenges of toilet training. The side-hobby was fulfilling and so effective, before they knew it they’d written and recorded a full-length album called Useful Songs For Little People.
It wasn’t long before people outside the realm of their ‘adult’ bands reach started taking notice and championing their music to their friends, family and followers. And that’s when Teeny Tiny Stevies took on a life of its own. Their songs and beautiful animations can now be seen on ABC Kids Television, and their sophomore album has been nominated for an ARIA award. They write kids songs with a purpose and their focus is acceptance.
