Stella Donnelly
Stella Donnelly
Stella Donnelly was raised between Morriston, Swansea in Wales and the burbs of Quinns Rocks, Western Australia. Donnelly got her start singing Green day songs in her Aussie high school rock band, eventually turning her interest to jazz and contemporary as an adult studying at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
At the beginning of 2017 Donnelly released her debut EP ‘Thrush Metal’ and was met with critical acclaim. The five-track release was written over the space of two years; a musical undertaking resulting in a bold and unapologetic repertoire of songs which has forged Donnelly to the forefront of the new guard of Australian songwriters.
The second half of 2017 saw Donnelly receive invitations to perform at word-renowned music showcases in 2018; the UK’s The Great Escape and Austin’s SXSW. In November, Donnelly travelled to London to perform sold out shows as part of The Great Escape’s ‘First 50’.
Back on home soil, Donnelly won the inaugural Levi’s Music Prize, as the ‘most outstanding talent’ at Brisbane’s Bigsound conference, a swathe of Western Australian Music Industry Awards, including Best EP, Best Folk Act, Best Single, Best Female Vocalist and Most Popular New Act. This was quickly followed by Australian national youth radio station Triple J awarding Donnelly the ‘Unearthed Artist of the Year’ award.
Whitney Ballen
She possesses a delicate voice that often reaches into the high registers. It works to her benefit, too, because it forces listeners to pay attention to her lyrics. Ballen has been a prolific songwriter and performer, playing shows with some frequency these days. That she's writing and playing lots of great songs means it shouldn't be too long before connecting with many more fans in the immediate future.
