Bold and unapologetic, Stella Donnelly is quickly moving to the forefront of the new guard of Australian songwriters for transforming her brutally honest and witty observations of people and relationships into blissful poems and lyrical punch lines. Donnelly’s 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.

Today, Donnelly is proud to introduce herself to North America with the hauntingly beautiful video for her song, “Boys Will Be Boys,” premiered this morning via NPR Music. As she explained to NPR Music, “’Boys Will Be Boys’ was written in late 2016 and is an attempt at making sense of society’s tendency to blame the victims of sexual assault and rape and make excuses for the perpetrators. Writing this also helped me work through things that had happened to not only my friends but to me as well, it helped me relieve a lot of the shame that victims are so often forced to feel in silence. I hope that this song along with the video will open up difficult yet important conversations between family members, friends, government bodies, organizations and most importantly, boys and men.”

Raised between Wales and the burbs of Western Australia, where she currently lives, 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. Earlier this fall, Donnelly unanimously won Bigsound 2017’s inaugural Levi’s Music Prize, an award given to an emerging Australian talent who is most likely to make waves internationally. Donnelly will make her North American debut at next year’s SXSW.
