The Fabulous Lemon Drops are Dez and Vanessa Staunton, a musical duo based in Brisbane, Australia. They met in London while travelling the world, Dez as a musician with rock band Dubh Chapter and Vanessa as a backpacker on a journey to circumnavigate the globe.
Their collective experiences have enabled them to write songs which are original, easy to dance to and appealing to families. Dez wanted to make music for children, drawing inspiration from the music he loved such as sixties psychedelia and seventies new wave, and not traditional nursery rhymes. Vanessa’s love of books and experiences as a teacher motivated her to write lyrics designed to extend children, stimulate their imaginations and open up creativity.
