‘ Someone To Hold’ Little Quirks make big waves with their newest ’50s inspired single. Taking a slight side-step from the folk flavours of their earlier songs, ‘Someone To Hold’ is a smooth and soulful track showing just how strong Little Quirks’ song writing and vocal abilities are. They are a force to be reckoned with! We might be going out on a limb here, but we can totes hear hints of Adele sprinkled all over this tune, with lead singer Abbey effortlessly matching the English artist’s range and tone. It’s the ultimate slow jam and proves we have only begun to see what this talented group from the Central Coast of New South Wales is capable of. And capable they are, not only do they self-produce tunes out of their home…

Slated for 2022, television series Ms. Marvel will arrive on Disney+ and is based on the Marvel Comics character Kamala Khan.

Hey Sofia! Congrats on your new song ‘Guess I’m a Liar’. What came first, a passion for acting or performing? Thank you – honestly, I grew up idolising women like Cher who didn’t have to choose and had incredible careers in both music and acting. I love both so much. They are so different in ways you get to express yourself. That is why I hope I am fortunate enough to keep making movies and releasing music. How did you learn to sing and dance, did you have lessons growing up? Growing up I did study dance, so that really helped with the Descendants. I studied dance for a lot of years so do ultimately consider myself a dancer! Tell us about the first time you performed… My first big live performance for TV was…

Hey guys! What is KIDZ BOP, and what is your fave thing about being part of it? Layla: We record popular songs that kids love. My favourite part is filming music videos because the sets and costumes are always so cool and it’s so much fun to dance. The music videos you post on YouTube are awesome. How long does it take to learn a new dance? Alana: About a week before, we learn the choreography with the choreographer and then practise. It’s so much fun dancing together with the other kids. What’s your fave song from the new KIDZ BOP album? Layla: My favourite song from our new album would be ‘Blinding Lights.’ Earlier this year, we filmed the music video in these amazing LED costumes with fun light-up props – it was so…
