Stella Donnelly

“I’m gonna throw you all off me like a mechanical bull then you’ll be sorry…”. Raised between Morriston, Swansea in Wales and the burbs of Quinns Rocks, WA, Stella was singing Green Day back in high school before turning her interest to jazz and studying at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Her 2017 debut EP Thrush Metal quickly grabbed our attention: the five-track release – featuring songs ‘Mean To Me’ and the triple j spun ‘Mechanical Bull’ – was written over the space of two years. Donnelly’s brutally honest and witty observations 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.
