Imogen Scales and Bridget Brandolini have known each other for a long time – in fact since there were six-year-olds in grade one.

Both girls are nearly 15 and are born and bred Byron Shire lasses.

Imogen and Bridget go to the Cape Byron Steiner School and say they love it because it is a great school for music.

‘We’ve been playing together for about one year now,’ says Imogen. ‘We really enjoy playing together and experimenting with our music. We hope to play together for a long while longer and to improve our music as well as our ability lets us.’

The girls have a small selection of originals and covers in their repertoire and have uploaded a trio of songs to YouTube.

‘Together, we each play a guitar to complement each other’s harmonies, along with the cello and piano,’ says Imogen, ‘but the majority of our songs are acoustic, played along with our guitars, which have their own harmonies and different riffs.

‘We play many genres of music, mostly folk and some pop here and there. We also write our own original songs, separately and together.

‘Music means everything to us and we just want people to hear and love the music that we create.’

The girls’ press release tells us that ‘Bridget has an extremely musical background with two music teachers as parents, and brothers and sisters that sing all day. She has been brought up surrounded by music, which has led to her love for the hobby.

‘Imogen has music in her blood from her grandparents with operatic talent – her brother also plays guitar at a high skill level, which was helpful when Imogen needed help here and there.’

Living in the festival shire, the girls say they would love to play at a few festivals around the area – they will play at every opportunity. ‘We’re sure that they’ll be great and a good experience.’
