Fremantle resident STELLA DONNELLY is undoubtedly one of 2017’s brightest stars. The freshly-minted WAM Award Winner and Unearthed J Award Artist of the Year, shared her debut EP Thrush Metal in April. The five-track collection (including the brilliant 'Mechanical Bull' and wrenching 'Boys Will Be Boys') has propelled Donnelly to the forefront of the new guard of Australian songwriters. Donnelly’s bold, unapologetic and ultimately 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. We are thrilled to have her play Laneway Freo next year.
