It is great to create and we have been feeling very creative lately. Producing video clips for the series and writing more songs for the Busy Izzy and Friends stage show.
I love working with Stephen Kiely (co-writer of the Busy Izzy and Friends song catalogue) We bounce off of each other really well while incorporating lyrical and musical ideas. Playing around with clever internal rhymes and interchanging melodies is always lots of fun. When work becomes play...it is a lot of fun!
Stephen and I share eclectic musical tastes, this is why our songs include many styles and genres. Stephen plays all the instruments...including drums...He is very clever indeed. You can listen to the Busy Izzy and Friends catalogue here...
We will be uploading a new video clip...A 'sort of COVID close-down song' - called
"When We're Indoors"
Don't forget to check it out - Roxanne Kiely

We are proud and excited to announce that one of our Busy Izzy and Friends songs has won the 'Songs For Children' category in the Australian Songwriters Association National awards... with four others in the top ten.
This year, due to obvious reasons, the ASA awards were a virtual presentation and such a fabulous event it was. We have five songs in the top ten.
Congratulations to all the place getters and winners.
1. Who, What, When, Where, How and Why - This song is about Secret-agent Skye, who is a real private eye, and the lead character, Izzy's friend, featured in book four in the Busy Izzy and Friends series due for release in 2022.
Nix & Nax is the centre of Izzy's world. It's her little store underneath Izzy's home she shares with her parents. It's a special little place they sectioned off especially for their daughter.
Inside her store, is a book-nook with a big beautiful green comfortable chair where Izzy and her friends can sit and chat, have fun, make plans and share stories. Izzy's friends often come here if they find themselves with a problem too. Izzy is always there to help. She is kind and generous and wants her friends to be happy and feel confident.
Inside, there is storeroom, full of hidden surprises, which you can find out about in her books...
