It’s a year of many firsts for Stella Donnelly. Off the back of her debut EP, the breakout artist dropped by FBi Radio for the very first time, chatting about her recent release and treating the Up For It crew to a special live song.

Coming into the studio to discuss ‘Thrush Metal’, Stella explained the importance of addressing female issues through her songwriting.  Letting us in on her recording process, the Perth-based singer songwriter revealed the difficulties she’s faced including such deeply personal themes in her body of work.

Catch the full interview above, plus a goosebump-inducing version of her single ‘Mechanical Bull’ live in the studio.
