Debbie Doo basically makes any version of online success I may have had seem like a Luke warm instant coffee bought in a truck stop.

Her online views and followers have casually left the 1000’s in its wake and have reached the millions. With a staggering flow of new content, she is a pioneer in this new frontier and one that has surely created the blueprint for all of us to follow. Her signature look, sound and image have made her one of Australia’s unsung greatest child entertaining exports. I give you the one and only Debbie Doo

To be a children’s artist, or any artist really, you need to hunt. A constant hunt for work, for exposure, and for the next payday. It is exhausting, and it IS constant, however some acts make it work, some acts respond to the hustle with a furrowed brow and rolled up sleaves, and then some….are the Kazoos. An act that has redefined the idea of longevity, hard work and the myriad of different hats one must wear. Their efforts and enthusiasm are contagious, along with their seemingly tireless skill at saying yes to any job and making it memorable.

Everyone, I give you the Kazoos
