Teeny Tiny Stevies are an ARIA Award-winning Australian children's music group established in 2015 by sisters Bethany 'Beth' and Sibylla 'Byll' Stephen. The Stephen sisters also perform as the indie folk band The Little Stevies.

Biography

In 2015, Beth Stephen and Byll Stephen started writing children's songs. Prompted by Byll Stephen's experience with her three-year-old child, the pair wrote a song about the challenges of toilet training before writing and recording a full-length album.

Teeny Tiny Stevies' debut album Useful Songs for Little People was offered to the public through The Little Stevies’ website and featured the songs "I Ate a Rainbow" and "Family (Love Is Love)". One of the tracks from the album, "Baby in Mum's Tummy", was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition

After performing at shows and festivals, the band's second album, Helpful Songs For Little People, was released in February 2018 by ABC Kids, and was nominated for the ARIA Award for Best Children's Album. The album features the singles "Boss of My Own Body" and "Boy Or Girl Colour".

In April 2020, the band shared a new song on social media, called "Stay Home", which helped explain the COVID-19 Pandemic to children.

Teeny Tiny Stevies' third studio album, Thoughtful Songs for Little People was released August 2020, featuring the singles "Had You to Teach Me", "Superpower" and "Good for Your Health". The album won the 2020 ARIA Award for Best Children's Album.

Animated Music Videos

Teeny Tiny Stevies' music videos, animated by illustrator Simon Howe, are broadcast regularly on ABC Kids TV.
