Teeny Tiny Stevies
A few years ago, sisters Byll and Beth of much-loved folk-pop band The Little Stevies started playing around writing some childrens 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. They called it “Useful Songs For Little People” and offered it to their fanbase through The Little Stevies website.
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.
They began to get regular play on Kinderling Radio, were featured on Channel 10’s The Project, and had a blog written about them by Zoe Foster-Blake titled “Kids Music That Doesn’t Suck”.
The Brisbane Times reported that Byll & Beth had “achieved the impossible – they have made children’s music that won’t rob adults of their will to live”.
Their animated music videos were noticed by the creative team at Sesame Street who subsequently commissioned Byll and Beth to write music for their online kids video channel. Their track “Baby In Mum’s Tummy” was a finalist in the international songwriting competition. And their second album “Helpful Songs For Little People” was picked up by ABC music, Australia’s premier kids music label.
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.
