Little Wise is the Melbournian musical brain-child of singer-songwriter Sophie Klein. Small in stature, she’s nevertheless got some big stories to tell and some musical wisdom to impart. With band members Miguel Rios, Megan Bernard, Conrad Tracey and Arlene Fletcher, Little Wise continues to spread a tasty trail of melodic crumbs for a growing fan-base, hungry for some warm folk-roots sounds. Their live shows sway between energetic and calming and incorporate a variety of instruments that include guitars, banjo and mandolin. Little Wise holds a beautiful ability to stir up visceral memories of great Australian story-tellers like Paul Kelly, filling those gaps of the heart by resonating with The Waifs, Angus and Julia Stone and Holly Throsby.
The debut EP, Moments of Clarity, will be released on May 30th 2012 with a launch at the John Curtin Band Room. The EP was recorded in producer Aurora Jane’s Brunswick bungalow and brings together the talents of some seasoned and much-loved Melbourne musicians in Rosie Burgess (Rosie Burgess Trio), Sam Lohs (RBT; Fruit) and Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange). In Soph’s words, the EP overall speaks to a “life that is pretty confusing, but is nevertheless punctuated by profound moments of clarity”.

The song's warm sound will make you want to snuggle up by the fire with some cinnamon tea, featuring dreamy group vocals, banjo and slow, driving bass. It was written about the experiences of travelling around New Zealand and describes the magic of sharing the pristine landscape with a lover.
