The award-winning Australian artist is fresh off the back of a global world tour including shows supporting Mitski, festival performances at Primavera, Splendour In The Grass and sold-out shows across the UK, Europe & North America. She eagerly returns home to perform her new album for Australian fans in 2023.

Following a slew of singles (‘Proof’ with Methyl Ethel, ‘Lungs’ & ‘Flood’), Donnelly released her highly anticipated and critically acclaimed sophomore record Flood in August 2022. Flood is Donnelly’s record of this rediscovery: the product of months of risky experimentation, hard moments of introspection, and a lot of moving around. Flood affirms Donnelly as one of Australia’s most outstanding young songwriters.

The album was written in a multitude of unique locations around Australia, from her home in Fremantle to the rainforests of Bellingen, Williams, Guilderton, Margaret River and Melbourne. With new locations came new approaches; Donnelly strayed from writing on an electric guitar, as she had in the past, and instead moved to the piano, imbuing her new work with fluidity, introspection and vulnerability that underpins the album.

With her dry wit, disarming vocals and endearing charm, Donnelly’s live show is the kind of performance you’ll never forget. Joining her on tour is up-and-coming Perth artist Mia June who makes dreamlike, punchy indie-rock drawing inspiration from the likes of Mitski and Julia Jacklin.

Tickets on sale Friday, November 4.
