About the World’ is the title Track of their new EP ‘Where we Hide’. The song is about the girls being quite reserved socially (and one of them suffers from bouts of anxiety) but through music they’ve found a way to get away from all that and be themselves. (They hide in their music). This was the first song written and the inspiration to try and record an EP.
.
Abbey and Mia’s father – Adam Toole recorded and mixed the EP in June at his home studio in Narara, ‘The Garden Shed’. His brother Paul (Jaymi’s father) co-produced. Adam explains “When the girls started recording, there were only three songs written so the other three were written as we went. This was the first time the girls had written and as father, and producer, I was very impressed!”
.
Mia’s song ‘stolen butterflies’ is the first song she has ever written… and ever sung! She turned up with the song written on a piece of cardboard  ripped from a box. We nearly called the song ‘cardboard butterflies’.

As the girls are so young (Mia was 12 at the time) there were a lot of lollies consumed during the recording, it was a bit like herding cats sometimes getting them to stop being nutters. But when it was their turn to record they took it very seriously and contributed a lot to how they wanted their song to sound. Production wise I went very simple and raw. As the girls are  popular buskers, and quite young, I wanted to capture their raw busking sound so I used very few effects and no electronic samples or loops.
.
We bought in a violinist for two of the songs. (Natalya Bing who played with Paul in Jon English’s The Rock Show). Paul played the bass for all the songs…. and piano on one. It was mastered locally by Darren Ziesing.

My nickname is "The Amnplifier". Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes than people come here for. My day to day "work" is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences. Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some "wisdom" from my regular and constant "observations". Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don't, you can always catch me on the Your Blog page. I have a regular spot there so let me know how you are going when you get the chance. Enjoy the new website, and enjoy the ride here as we keep introducing more all the time.
