FRIDAY night at the Faumui house is concert night. After a week to write the lyrics and think up some chords Kashia, 17, Salale, 16 and Koebi, 11 reveal their self-penned creations to the family.
It's a tradition the Jerrabomberra family began more than three years ago and it's paid off - their family band "The Faumuis" are set to release their fourth album next week.
Dad, Garry, said he hoped the weekly song writing and performance task would improve their skills and it certainly has.
"My wife and I look forward to Friday nights, we have our own mini concert. It's really cool, it's a lovely time. We get the children to talk about the story of the song and play it," he said.
"I've been pleasantly surprised, when we first started the song writing I thought it would peter out in the first month or two but it's been almost three years.
"Sure some of their songs should not see the light of day but there's plenty of usable material in there. They've matured so much in their song writing."
The Faumuis now have a collection of about 200-300 songs banked up and some of them feature on their latest release "Expectations".
The album is a departure from their earlier sound partly because it's the first time they've worked with a producer.
"We've been influenced by a lot of folk, gospel and acoustic in the past. This album moves away from the first three albums," Kasia explained.
"We worked with Canberra producer Joe Niko, he's known for a more bluesy, r'n'b and gospel sound. The album sounds a little more produced, there's more instruments."
The Faumuis will launch their "Expectations" on Thursday, October 24 at the Polish Club ahead of a tour around Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
The Samoan- Polish trio is looking forward to hitting the road and have plenty of experience playing every and any where including schools, churches and even nursing homes.
"We would love to do music full-time, one of our dreams is doing something we love for a living and music is something we love," Salale said.
One thing the trio is adamant about is staying about from television talent quests, they prefer to follow their own path.
"Often the people that go on those shows only gain popularity for a few months but when it ends you don't hear about them anymore," Salale said.
"We feel it's better to do it our own way, do the hard yards to eventually get somewhere."
The Faumuis launch their fourth album "Expectations" at the Polish Club, Turner on Thursday, October 24 at 7pm. For more information or to download their previous albums visit
