Stella Donnelly

Stella Donnelly

Western Australia-based Stella Donnelly is a young songwriter with a knack for wrapping unapologetic,
brutally honest and witty lyrics with a soaring lullaby to mesmeric effect. Her endearing and relatable way
of writing is her lens to the world in which we live, a glimpse into what it’s like to be a millennial woman in
the age of Trump, Tinder and third wave feminism. On the heels of Donnelly’s fall North American solo run

supporting Natalie Prass, she announces her return to the states for a full band headline tour in 2019. Label
mate, Faye Webster, will open. Next year will also see the release of Donnelly’s debut full-length album on
Secretly Canadian (details still to come). This follows her “Thrush Metal” EP, featuring the standout “Boys
Will Be Boys,” which she wrote in 2016 about society’s tendency to blame the victims of sexual assault.
With only an EP released thus far and two tours of North America behind her, Donnelly has already been
recognized by the likes of The New York Times for “Boys Will Be Boys” and being one of “17 Acts That
Stood Out” at SXSW, and NPR Music which named Donnelly a 2018 Slingshot Artist (stay tuned for her Tiny
Desk Concert). Preceding their Sunday Arts profile, The Los Angeles Times recognized Donnelly for being
“openly frank about real life and remarkably cognizant of the audience, so much so that her songs extended
a hand as much as they told a story or presented a point of view.”
For those looking for a taste of something new from Donnelly, check out her recent performance on
WXPN’s World Café where she performed new song, “Beware of the Dogs,” and more.
