Siblings busking for big break

JESS Ambler, 17, would like to be a signed musician performing in front of crowds.

Albeit without being nervous.

And her 12-year-old brother Wes said his, like any performer's, goal was to be signed on a record label.

"I'd also like to write just 10 autographs," he added, "that aren't asked for by people I know."

The Currumbin-based duo currently busk to pay for food and petrol and their mother Kath Callow believes it won't be long before they achieve their aims.

Wes often busks outside Dominoes Pizza in Tugun where Jess works part-time and can sometimes earn more than his sister.

"People don't just chuck money in their bucket," the proud mum said.

"They stop and say things like 'don't give up' or 'wow you guys are great'.

"It's all been organic - they haven't had to push for anything."

Wes plays at Palm Beach's St Kilda Cafe and Gordon's Fish and Chips Coolangatta.

Ms Callow would love to see her children rise to fame but wants only to be their fan rather than manager.

Wes is the more confident of the pair which is helping open doors for the both of them.

But there is no denying Jess who has been compared to Norah Jones has the look if not the backbone she will likely acquire with age.

As far as voices are concerned you can find out for yourself when the pair next perform at Lismore's Lantern Parade this weekend, June 23.

If you cannot make the drive they will then play at the Thrower Bridge-adjacent restaurant The Creek on July 1 from 12.30-2.30pm.

Ms Callow said practising, performing and their future was "all up to them".

"It's like a sport and if you don't practise the skills you won't be good at the game."
