Stella Donnelly has toured relentlessly in support of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Beware of the Dogs’ . Released in March 2019, the album received international praise from leading outlets such as Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, The New York Times and Stereogum.
The release of the record and preceding singles such as ‘Old Man’ & ’Tricks’ propelled Donnelly to new heights including studio sessions for NPR’s Tiny Desk & KEXP as well an envious international touring schedule which saw her sell out shows across North America and Europe as well as play prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury, Roskilde and a stand out performance at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival among many others.
Although touring has taken a back seat for much of the year, 2020 saw Donnelly receive the prestigious Australian Independent Record Label’s Association (AIR) ‘Album Of The Year’ and ‘Pop Album Of The Year’ awards for ‘Beware of the Dogs ‘
An artist totally in command of her voice; able to blend her inviting charm and sharp wit into authentically raw songs, Donnelly’s song writing makes you feel like you’re in her lounge room and she’s just made you a cup of tea and a slice of cake, so that you’re comfortable when she tells you some hard truths.
