‘Hurt Me’ is what we regard as a ‘twisted love song’ where in the character in the song loves this person so much, he wishes to cause her harm and emotional pain so he can “cure” her; make her feel as though he is her “hero”. Yeah, it isn’t a personal song, just a little idea we came up with—we enjoy creative writing! – @LittleFableDuo

GETTING TO KNOW LITTLE FABLE (AL AND JJ)
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
The story: ‘Hurt Me’ is what we regard as a ‘twisted love song’
wherein the character in the song loves this person so much, he wishes to cause her harm and emotional pain so he can “cure” her; make her feel as though he is her “hero”. Yeah, it isn’t a personal song, just a little idea we came up with—we enjoy creative writing!

The album, ‘Freedom + Other Stories’ (+ = “and”) is very special to us—
all of our music is special to us, but this body of work is a collection of songs we have written over the last
year and a bit that we have placed into this album which we see as a “book” of chapters. The album isn’t a story exactly, but it is our story in the sense that we used these songs—the album, to get ourselves through some hard times. They’re not just our babies, they are our natural healing. Music is the language of the universe in our own humble opinion, so we hope this body of work talks to others the way it talked to us as we were putting it all together.
We live in the UK (that is as specific as we will get, hah!)
In our town in particular, there are no venues—we live far out and that is how we like it, but we have ventured further a field in the past and seen some awesome acts over the years. One in particular, is a very good friend
of ours, Jim Diamond, a Scottish singer-songwriter who was very famous in the 80s who sadly died last year. The live circuit in the UK in general, though, is vast—always something going on, but we choose to live away from the hustle and bustle!
The music business to us is not what it seemed to be in the “good old days”
with the likes of Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and such. Things seemed to be more about the talent back then, whereas nowadays it does seem to be more about the “money”, the “looks” and all of that. Me personally (Al), I have had a taste of record labels many years ago, when I was young—let’s just say it was an experience with sharks who wanted more than just material; we are being more careful with how we go about it this time and who we put our trust into.
One of the people we both admire and idolize is a person we have already mentioned;
Jim Diamond. I (Al) first heard Jim singing back when I was about 5 years old and he instantly became my musical idol and made me want to become a singer. Later in life we became friends which was amazing for me. JJ quickly became a fan and inspired by Jim, also, when we got together and she met him. Losing him has been hard on us both, but he still continues to inspire us. Otherwise, for both of us it would have to be Miley Cyrus. She is a marketing genius, has sheer talent, and despite how much she is hated by many, she doesn’t let it get her down. She has one hell of a voice and handles everything so well and knows exactly what she’s doing.
