Supported by Pool Shop
Two of Australia’s most exciting songwriters Alex the Astronaut and Stella Donnelly are thrilled to announce they are joining forces for a co-headline tour this April. With guitars in tow, Alex the Astronaut and Stella Donnelly will travel through seven states to play 12 shows, with supports to be announced.
Take a minute to rewind back to September last year, when the annual BIGSOUND conference took over Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. Alex the Astronaut had just had the highest attended showcase and Bigsound Buzz named her the most talked about artist of the week. Stella Donnelly left her crowds breathless and took out the inaugural Levi’s Music Prize. Two very different sounding artists with one clear commonality – they write honest music that makes an impact. They were introduced during that week and needless to say, they became fast friends. “We both think the other is funny and we like each other’s music… Stella can’t really bake. And Alex just made her first cake. Thought it’d be a good recipe to head out on the road together!” Et voila! We have an early contender for co-headline tour of the year.
It’s a musical bond born in Brisbane, and they’re about to take it national. Don’t miss your chance to see these two incredible musicians before the rest of the world discovers the magic that is Alex the Astronaut and Stella Donnelly.
