Two-time Award Winning New Zealand Children’s Music duo Itty Bitty Beats formed in 2014 by Lucy Hiku and Jenny Payne .Their debut album Bath Time was nominated for Best Children’s Album of the Year in 2015.
In 2016 they won both the Tui Award for Best Children’s Album for Lay Your Head Down, and APRA’s Best Children’s Song for Pō Mārie at the NZ Children’s Music Awards.
They have also released songs for Baby Loss Awareness Month; The Last Lullaby (2015), Soaring Through Skies (2016) and They Say (2017). The reason they released this music is sadly Jenny and Rob lost their beautiful son Leo in 2009 at just 3 days old. This music is a legacy to his memory and it is their hope that these songs bring some comfort to families in their time of loss and to help shine a light on the topic of baby & child loss.
