Bio

Stella Farnan is a 20 year old indie pop/rock musician from Melbourne who cannily weaves a tapestry of emotion and intellect across catchy melodies and vibrant textures.

Stella burst into 2020 playing a sold-out bushfire benefit show alongside Alex Lahey, Japanese Wallpaper, Gretta Ray and Alice Ivy. This was following the release of two impressive singles in 2019 that garnered Triple J airplay and secured her support slots with acts including Ali Barter, Alpine and Nancie Schipper. Both songs were produced by Soren Maryasin (The Teskey Brothers, Earnest Jackson) and mixed by Callum Barter (Courtney Barnett, British India).

Stella’s debut single ‘Love Spill’ is ‘a gorgeous, clear and cruisey debut with a voice that’ll warm you from the inside out’ (Claire Mooney, Triple J). Follow up single ‘Act Like a Party’ is a rich and soaring confessional indie rock song that showcases the earthy soulfulness of her voice.

two songs in and stella is proving herself a smart young songwriter whose words and voice you believe entirely. and i reckon missy higgins has had an influence somewhere along the track.

This is very thoughtful music. You think about music and you think about feelings and it's an impressive first release.

This chorus pops like a balloon in a ceiling fan but I can imagine it would disappoint my two year old a lot less.
