Congratulations! Felicity and Glen Hannah!  Married in Vanuatu this week. 
Felicity will be launching her new album "Landing Light" at the Vanguard on March 19th 2009
Winners are grinners!
The winners in the 13th CMAA Australian Country Music Achiever Awards were announced last night in a star studded event at WatersEdge in Sydney.
Country music’s most respected performers and industry movers and shakers were there to tip their hats to the Achiever Awards’ Class of ’07 which included those musicians, performers and organisations who have flown the country music flag over the previous 12 months.

The gala ceremony was held under the Sydney Harbour Bridge with performances by this year’s Entertainer of the Year winner (taking his total Achiever Award wins is five) and crowd favourite Troy Cassar-Daley. Troy’s non stop touring as well as his appearances on the last two seasons of “It Takes Two” have cemented him in the hearts and minds of fans and the industry alike.

Taking her 3rd Independent Entertainer of the Year Award in a row was the beautiful Felicity Urquhart, fresh from her performance before US President George W Bush and Prime Minister Howard during APEC week in Sydney. Felicity performed tonight with her partner and collaborator Glen Hannah, who also took home his 3rd Achiever Award in 2007 in the Cover Art of the Year category (for Ring Around the Moon by James Blundell).

In the industry awards categories, ABC Music Publishing solidified their standing as Publishing Company of the Year winning the Award for the 6th consecutive year and Shock Records took out their 2nd Record Company of the Year – Independent Award.

Also winning consecutive Awards were The Pub, Tamworth (Entertainment Venue of the Year) and John Nutting (Media Achiever of the Year – Individual). Sydney based label Compass Bros Records also returned to the podium for the 4th time as Record Company of the Year – Major Distribution.

In its 2nd year in the Achiever Awards calendar, the CMAA Board was proud to present the Musician of the Year Award to James Gillard whose long musical career has seen him move from the rock ‘n roll stage (Mondo Rock), to work with some of country music’s most respected bands (The Fargone Beauties, The Flood, The Stormwater Boys).

Each year, the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) acknowledges the Australian country music recording artist who has received that highest radio airplay during the previous year. The recipient of the PPCA Most Broadcast Australian Country Music Artist Award for 2006 was Keith Urban.

Graham, Gemma, Jayne & Felicity - Finalists in the Aus Independent CM Awards
It has been an exciting time for the following four artists over the last month or so, with all having success with their latest singles, album releases, and finalist nominations in the Australian Independent Country Music Awards.
Golden Guitar winner Felicity Urquhart has not only recently signed a publishing deal with one of Australia’s leading publishing companies Mushroom Music Publishing, she has also been named a finalist in three upcoming awards: CMAA Achiever Awards Independent Entertainer of the Year / Mo Awards Slim Dusty Country Performer of the Year / Australian Independent Country Music Awards for Single of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. With her new single NO MISTAKES climbing the CMC video chart and airplay charts – taken from her album MY LIFE (distributed by Shock Records), it is available at radio on the August Shock Records country sampler.

Graham Rodger’s start to 2007 was wonderful, with him being named a finalist at the CMAA Golden Guitars, taking out a number of awards at the TSA’s and continued his winning streak at the 2007 QLD Gold Medallion Awards. Having just returned from a successful Gympie Muster, Graham is on the Top 30 Country Tracks chart at #19, with his single WOMAN ON THE LAND, taken from his album THUNDERBOLT (distributed by OneStop Country). The strength of this song has helped secure Graham a nomination in the Heritage Track of the Year at the Australian Independent Country Music Awards, to be held early October. WOMAN ON THE LAND is available at radio on the NFS #114 sampler.

Alternative country artist Gemma Doyle has proven again her songs hit the mark with audiences and peers alike. After her Golden Guitar nomination this year and recent video clip showings on Channel Nine’s The Music Jungle and ABC’s Rage, Gemma is back at radio and on CMC with her latest single ALL I WANT IS TONIGHT. Having received steady requests on CMC for her new single, taken from the album NOTHING (distributed by OneStop Country), Gemma is sitting in the Top 40 and climbing. The single is at radio and available on NFS #113 sampler. Her talent has been identified by the country music fraternity with her being named a finalist in the Australian Independent Country Music Awards for Rising Star Female.

Jayne Denham may be a new name to some, but she’s been working on her craft for many years. Having just released her debut album last month, titled SUDDEN CHANGE IN THE WEATHER (distributed by Shock Records), Jayne has already had a Top 20 hit with her first single CHICK UTE. This country rock chick is definitely one to keep on the radar, and it seems others share the same opinion, with her being nominated for Rising Star Female at the Australian Independent Country Music Awards. Keep an eye out for her new
single COUSIN JUDE on the August Shock Records country sampler.         Click here Graham Rodger's Artist Report Page
There’s no trace of a big black cloud hovering over singer-songwriter Felicity Urquhart after signing her first ever publishing deal with one of Australia’s most respected publishing companies MUSHROOM MUSIC PUBLISHING.

Two for the road – Sara and Felicity on tour together
Two of Australia’s most unique female singers are joining forces to what promises to be one of the stand-out tours of 2007!
9 times Golden Guitar winner Sara Storer and two times Golden Guitar winner Felicity Urquhart (www.felicityurquhart.com) will bring their unique talents together for a series of exclusive shows.

Felicity Urquhart Takes Homes Gold
Felicity Urquhart was a popular winner at the recent 35th CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia, presented by Jayco. Held in the Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre to a sell-out crowd, Felicity took out Video Clip of the Year for the beautiful Big Black Cloud, which was directed by Glenn Wilson, and co-written with Grammy winner Randy Scruggs.

It was Felicity’s second Golden Guitar, and a well-deserved one, as her album My Life was nominated for Album of the Year and the single Big Black Cloud for Female Artist of the Year.

Felicity’s thanks included producer Glen Hannah, The Pub Management, RUM Entertainment, all family, friends and fans who have been following her career, plus to director, friend and her drummer Glenn Wilson for creating the winning clip.

During the lead-up week to the awards at the Tamworth CM Festival, Felicity was honoured at the Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards being awarded Best Female Vocal, ahead of a strong field of finalists including Kasey Chambers, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer and Cat Southern. These awards are voted by the fans, and so is a wonderful accolade to receive from the public. www.peopleschoiceawards.com.au 

It has been an exciting few weeks since December for Felicity, as she performed for Australian troops and the Australian Federal Police in the Solomon Islands over New Year, and filled in as host on ABC Radio’s Saturday Night Country while regular host John Nutting took holidays.

You will be able to watch the 35th CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia, presented by Jayco, this weekend, being broadcast on the Southern Cross Network Saturday 3 February at 6.30pm and on Network Ten in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth on Sunday 4 February 2007 at 12 noon. www.country.com.au
Felicity Urquhart’s award-winning album MY LIFE, is distributed through Shock Records.
Felicity celebrates the New Year by giving to our troops
While most people in Australia are recovering from their Christmas excesses and planning to break New Year’s resolutions, country star Felicity Urquhart has another New Year’s mission in mind. Felicity leaves Australian shores this week as part of a group of 12 performers, to entertain Australian troops and federal police officers in the Solomon Islands over New Year.

Bush poet Dave Proust, rock band Night Train, and Felicity, together with musicians Brett Wood, Simon Johnson and Rudy Miranda, will perform in a series of New Year’s Eve concerts for Australian troops and members of the Australian Federal Police serving in the Solomons.

Also performing for the troops will be the RAAF’s Central Band from Melbourne, under the baton of Squadron Leader Steve Wright.

“I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to go to the Solomons to do something positive for our defence force personnel,” Felicity said. “It would have been easy to stay at home and celebrate New Year’s Eve with family and friends, but when I thought of all those people who didn’t have that luxury because of their commitment to Australia’s defence, I couldn’t stay away.”

The troupe of entertainers will arrive back in Australia early in the New Year. Felicity will then prepare for her major concert at the 2007 Tamworth Country Music Festival, where she appears at Wests’ Diggers on Wednesday, January 24. Felicity will also appear as a special guest on Sara Storer’s concert at Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre on Thursday, January 25.

Felicity’s new single, Big Black Cloud, from her Golden Guitar-nominated Album of the Year, My Life, is enjoying extensive airplay across Australia and the video clip is in residence at the #1 spot on the CMC most requested clips chart.
My Life – distributed by Shock Records

FELICITY URQUHART "Does it again!"

No Big Black Cloud following this co-writing team
While Felicity Urquhart is riding high on a wave of success with her latest single, Big Black Cloud, the song’s co-writer is in the winner’s circle on the other side of the world. Randy Scruggs, son of legendary American bluegrass musician Earl Scruggs, is a much admired musician, songwriter and record producer. At the 40th annual CMA Awards, announced this week in America, Randy was named Musician of the Year for the third time in seven years. He won the coveted award previously in 2003 and 1999, adding to his tally of five CMA awards (two others for his production talents). As a writer Randy has scored seven #1 hits and has more than 100 songs recorded by major artists including Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless and Deana Carter. He’s also won three Grammy awards for his production and musicianship, and was honoured by the Gibson Guitar company as Country Guitarist of the Year 1999. Felicity, who spent some time writing with him in the States on a previous visit, was absolutely delighted to hear of Randy’s big win this week. “Randy gave me the confidence to be myself,” Felicity said. “His musicianship and songwriting skills are enormous but what was most overwhelming to me was his kind heart and reserved nature. He’s a true gem and I wish him continued success in his career.” Felicity is having a great time with the response from radio listeners and programmers, and audiences all over the country just loving songs from her new album, My Life. Felicity was totally stoked to learn that Big Black Cloud was #1 on the Sounds Like Café chart for October. It was her first time on the chart, and to start at the top with that song was a real bonus. Felicity is a finalist in Best Country Artist in the MusicOz Awards, to be announced in Sydney on November 14. This comes on top of her back to back wins in the CMAA Achiever Awards for Independent Entertainer of the Year.

For further information or to arrange an interview with Felicity please phone Joan Douglas on 0417 233 713. To book Felicity phone Alex Sinclair at Artist Network on (02) 9819 6411. Release created 10-11-06.

Felicity’s the toast of the latte set
Roots music has been embraced by Australia’s coffee culture, with Felicity Urquhart’s stunning new single, Big Black Cloud, achieving the #1 spot on the Sounds Like Cafe chart for October. Sounds Like Café was established with the specific purpose of distributing quality Australian music to cafes and coffee shops throughout selected areas of Australia. Each Sounds Like Café CD features some of Australia’s most highly regarded musicians and composers, new releases from up and coming artists and bonus international tracks. So if you happen to be sipping a latte, a long black, a cappuccino or a flat white at any one of the 605 coffee shops in the metropolitan area of Australia, or 598 outlets in regional Australia, there’s every chance you will hear Felicity’s velvet vocals streaming through that venue.

“It was such a great bonus for me to go straight to the top of that chart my first time in – and totally unexpected, which makes it that much more special,” Felicity said.
And it’s not only the latte set raving over Big Black Cloud. In this week’s Country Music Channel Countdown, the clip has risen to #7, its highest entry to date.

Felicity is a finalist in Country Artist of the Year at the MusicOz Awards for The Flood, the first single from her highly acclaimed album, My Life. The MusicOz Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday, November 14 at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney.

Back to back wins for Felicity Urquhart
Felicity Urquhart took out the coveted Entertainer of the Year (Independent) at the 2006 CMAA Achiever Awards in Sydney on Monday night.
In a field of high achievers, the Tamworth-born star shone on the night, performing to the sellout crowd at the Sydney Harbour Marriott, singing her new hit single, Big Black Cloud.
Felicity won the award last year and was delighted to add another glittering trophy to her already weighted-down mantelpiece.
“It’s such an honour to win this award, when I’m in such fine company,” Felicity said.
“I just love entertaining – always have – and it’s something I hope to keep doing for a long, long time.”
Felicity paid tribute to her manager, Joan Douglas, her sister and publicist Rebecca McCarthy, and her guitar player and producer, Glen Hannah, who accompanied Felicity on stage for her performance that night.
In another category on the night, Cover Art of the Year, Glen Hannah, a dual finalist, took out the award for his creative design of My Life, Felicity’s current album.
CMAA project manager Cath Grippo said in putting the awards together, it was quite extraordinary the number of CD covers Glen had created.
“I don’t know how he does it. He’s so busy as a professional musician, touring with Kasey Chambers, and yet he still finds time to create some wonderful artwork for such a large number of artists,” Cath said.
The host with the most on the awards night was Channel 10 weatherman and huge country music supporter, Tim Bailey.
The event is organised by the Country Music Association of Australia and awards are voted on by the organisation’s professional membership.
Organisers said this year a record number of members took the opportunity to vote for their peers in these unique awards that recognise the achievements of behind the scenes workers in the media, venues, record companies and the like.
There was no chance for Felicity to take a long sleep-in after her big night out in Sydney, as she was up bright and early for an appearance on The Today Show, with Richard Wilkins, who was a guest presenter at the Achiever Awards.
Following that, the consummate entertainer hopped on a plane bound for Rockhampton, where she will join fellow Golden Guitar winner Adam Brand on a tour of Queensland.

Felicity scores the winning trifecta at Mildura Awards
Three wins out of three starts is a great result in anyone’s language, which is just how it was for Felicity Urquhart at the Telstra CountryWide Southern Stars 10th Annual Australian Independent Country Music Awards.

The Flood, the first single from Felicity’s highly acclaimed fifth album, My Life, took out the APRA/AMCOS Independent Country Music Single of the Year, and My Life won the One Stop Entertainment Independent Album of the Year. Felicity’s awards trifecta was complete when she was announced winner of the Independent Female Vocalist award, a trophy she also accepted in 2004. This has been a significant year in Felicity’s career to date, with numerous accolades coming her way. Although she has been writing songs for a number of years, it wasn’t until this year she actually won an award from the Australian Songwriters’ Association for her songwriting. She very proudly added this trophy to her mantelpiece already filled with MO, ACE, TIARA, CMAA Achiever and other rewards of her talent and dedication.

“I was thrilled to win one award at Mildura, let alone three,” Felicity said. “Being a fiercely independent artist, I’m just so delighted the judges have seen fit to recognise My Life in this way, and feel that Glen Hannah really did bring out the very best in me and in the musicians who worked on the project.”
Felicity will take that winning smile with her all the way through NSW and Queensland when she takes off on tour with multiple Golden Guitar winner James Blundell from October 11 to 15. Then on October 16 in Sydney, Felicity will perform as reigning Independent Entertainer of the Year at the CMAA Achiever Awards. Following that gig, it’s on the road again for this consummate performer, this time in the fine company of fellow Golden Guitar winner Adam Brand, for a series of shows in Queensland until late November.

Big Black Cloud, the third single from My Life, has just been released to radio. The song was co-written with American hitmaker Randy Scruggs and is a real showstopper at Felicity’s live concerts. You can keep up with all of Felicity’s latest achievements and find out where she’s playing by visiting her website, www.felicityurquhart.com  or www.myspace.com/felicityurquhart

Life has been smiling down on FELICITY URQUHART throughout a hectic few months promoting her latest single and shooting episodes for Channel 7’s Sydney Weekender.

Her single MY LIFE reached #3 on the Top 30 Country Tracks chart and is currently #12 on the CMC Top 30 video chart. The track is taken from the album of the same name, MY LIFE, distributed by Shock Records.

“The support has been appreciated from not only the media but from the fans, as it’s them who come to the shows and request my songs to radio and CMC,” explains Felicity.

Recently returning from a NSW tour with Adam Brand, she is looking forward to hitting the road again in October on an acoustic tour with James Blundell, and a QLD tour mid October with Adam Brand & Carter & Carter.

“I remember watching James when he won Starmaker, when I was a kid, so I’m honoured to be performing alongside him in a stripped-back performance – just the two of us and guitars.”

“And when on Brandy’s tour we just all have a good time.”

In August Felicity was named Australian Songwriters Association’s Country Songwriter Of The Year, for her song THE FLOOD co-written with Glen Hannah. Felicity felt honoured with the award, as it was her first award in the songwriting arena.

Felicity is currently a finalist in three categories at the upcoming Australian Independent CM Awards for Album Of The Year, Single Of The Year and Female Vocalist Of The Year, to be announced at the culmination of one of the biggest independent music festivals in Australia, the Mildura Country Music Festival, Saturday 30th September. www.milduracountrymusic.com.au

Felicity Urquhart is certainly living her life, as her current single MY LIFE hits the charts.
The title track from her brand new album MY LIFE has just broken into the Top 30 Country Tracks chart.

“There are two words that describe this album: delicate and exquisite. The songs are perceptive, yet subtle ….and the shear beauty of the music…Highlights include the title track My Life, the darkly introspective Big Black Cloud and Lonely Girl …. Felicity has long been under-rated on the Australian country scene. This classy and appealing album should remedy that situation in a hurry.” Susan Jarvis, CapNews

Felicity is currently enjoying the spoils of Norfolk Island for their annual country music festival, and was excited to hear the news, and thanked all the stations for their support.

“Thanks to all who have added My Life – it’s a great feeling knowing people are hearing your songs,” Felicity explains.

ACT residents will be able to see Felicity shortly, as she heads to Canberra to perform an intimate acoustic dinner show at The Rose Inn Canberra Friday 2 June, before jetting off to Russia where she will be performing at Australia Week in Moscow.

“The singer is a melancholic maestro of mood swings from morose Big Black Cloud to sensual swagger of Breathe and paralysis of love in No Mistakes. She explores fragility in A Little Joy, retreat in Lonely Girl and yearning for love that escaped in Take Me Back…. Beg, steal or borrow to find this gem.” Dave Dawson, Beat Magazine

She is also featured in the nomination of music show NuCountry TV in The Antennas, the upcoming national community television awards. The episode hosted by Felicity is in the Top 5 of Best Music Show, to be announced June 16 in Federation Square, Melbourne.

The new single has been getting great support nationally, with airplay on the following stations (plus many more):

2WEB Bourke / ACE Radio Network SA & 8HA Alice Springs Today’s Best Country / LOCAL FM Regional WA / KIKFM 88.7 Regional QLD / CMR Country Music Radio / 98.5FM / 2PK Parkes / KIXFM 92.3 Regional QLD / W-FM Radio Perth / ABC Radio Saturday Night Country /MTMFM Coonamble / 104.5 StarFM Central Coast / 98.9FM Fairfield / WYNFM Melbourne / Radio Adelaide / StarFM St Helens / 3NRG99.3FM Sunbury / 2NZ Inverell / 2MCR Campbelltown / 2CC Canberra / 3SERFM / 2CCCFM Central Coast / CoastFM96.3 / 2VM Moree / 88.6FM Whittlesea / CBAA / SpectrumFM Belgrave / Radio Upper Hunter / Upper Murray Radio / Internet Radio / 891 ABC Adelaide / 4OURFM Caboolture / Gippsland FM / 2VM Moree / 3REGFM East Gippsland / 5CC Port Lincoln / RCF-Rouen Radio France / KIXFM Kangaroo Island / American Music Radio Show / 4DDB FM Toowoomba / Radio Lyon 1 France / 2TM Tamworth / 2YOUFM Tamworth / NENW ABC Tamworth / ValleyFM Tuggernong / QBNFM Queanbeyan / 2BRW Braidwood

“Felicity is one of Australia’s most sophisticated female artists. This Album is EXCELLENT!” Charlie Sparrow, Blues Country Magazine

“Tamworth troubadour Felicity Urquhart digs up pure country roots on her fifth CD. She blends bliss of mentor Alison Krauss on the title track and 'On & On', before displaying soulful swagger on 'The Flood' – two of four tracks performed with guitarist-producer Glen Hannah. Felicity masters mood swings in the morose 'Big Black Cloud' and stormy 'No Mistakes', and tackles the topic of survival in 'Still Alive' – penned with bluegrass torchbearer Randy Scruggs. There’s ruptured romance in 'Mr Catfish', heart paralysis in 'A Little Joy', retreat in 'Lonely Girl', yearning in 'Take Me Back' and abandonment in 'Breathe'. This is Felicity at her creative peak, wedding heart and soul with delicious dexterity. A gem.” Music Australia Guide

Felicity conquers TV – and now radio
A Tamworth jackaroo school will be featured on Channel Seven’s program, Walkabout, at 6.30pm on Saturday, December 17 – and the songs have a very familiar ring to them.

That’s because they’re sung by Tamworth’s very own golden girl, Felicity Urquhart. Felicity, a regular presenter on Sydney Weekender, is no stranger to the world of television, but she’s now also conquering another form of media – radio.

Felicity has scored the gig as fill-in presenter for John Nutting on Saturday Night Country.

Award nominations ‘flooding’ in for Felicity
It’s raining nominations for Felicity Urquhart, whose new single The Flood has found favour with judges and industry representatives right across the board.

Felicity was notified early in December of her finalist nomination in the Female Vocalist of the Year category of the 2006 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards.

Then came news of her finalist berth in the 30th Annual Australian Entertainment MO Awards, in the Country Female Performer of the year category. The MO Awards celebrate excellence in live performance and the winners will be announced in February, 2006 at a gala ceremony in Sydney.

The judges of the 2006 Tamworth Independent Artists Recognition Awards (TIARAs) also found Felicity’s composition, The Flood, to their liking, naming her in both the Female Vocal and Songwriting categories.

At the 2005 Tamworth Country Music Festival Felicity took home the Best Female trophy from the ACMLA People’s Choice Awards and she will defend her crown next month, having secured a finalist berth in that category of the 2006 awards.

As Felicity prepares for the release of her new album, My Life, released through Shock Records, at the 2006 Tamworth Country Music Festival, she’s found this flood of nominations extremely heartening.

“I’m just so thrilled at the response to The Flood so far,” Felicity said.

”This is the first single from the album, so I can’t wait for everyone to hear all the other songs. Glen Hannah has done such a fabulous job of the production, I couldn’t be happier.”

My Life will be officially launched at The Pub Group on Target stage outside the Target department store in Peel St, at 12.30pm on Wednesday, January 25.

For further details, or to arrange an interview with Felicity, please contact Joan Douglas at The Pub Management on 6765 4875, or 0417 233 713.

Felicity a hot contender for female vocalist crown
The ocean of tears and raw emotion behind her brilliant new single, The Flood, has secured Felicity Urquhart a finalist berth in the 2006 CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia.

Felicity’s heartfelt dedication to her parents, may well see her take home her second Golden Guitar – this time in the coveted female vocalist of the year category.

Having been in the finals on numerous occasions, Felicity won her first Golden Guitar in 2001 when she took out vocal collaboration of the year with Darren Coggan, Beccy Cole and Adam Harvey, but winning the female vocal would be the icing on the cake for this home-grown star.

“I’m so honoured to be in such fine company with my fellow finalists Beccy Cole, Tania Kernaghan, Samantha McClymont and Sara Storer,” Felicity said.
Felicity has also been honoured with a finalist nomination for Country Female Performer of the Year at the 30th Annual Australian Entertainment MO Awards, celebrating excellence in live performance, to be announced February 2006.

Felicity is excited about the release of her much anticipated new album, My Life, which will take place during the 2006 Tamworth Country Music Festival.

“I couldn’t be happier with the production of the album, or the way the whole thing has come together,” Felicity said.

Glen Hannah and Jeff McCormack share the production credits, and the cream of Australia’s session musicians were enlisted to ensure the disc was first class – all the way.

The video clip of The Flood is enjoying high rotation on the Country Music Channel. To keep updated with Felicity’s latest achievements, visit the website, www.felicityurquhart.com

Felicity's on her way
 by Anna Rose
Gifted Australian singer-songwriter Felicity Urquhart is in line for three Golden Guitars in January, as a finalist in the Female Vocalist and Vocal Collaboration categories.

In female vocalist, Felicity's radio hit, Turn Out The Light, is the song that elevated her to the top five, in a strong field of four previous holders of the title - Kasey Chambers, Melinda Schneider, Beccy Cole and Sara Storer.

In Vocal Collaboration of the Year, Felicity's vocal pairing with Graeme Connors (I Dream of Highways) and Glen Hannah (Dear Someone) made the top five.

A third Felicity vocal collaboration with Daniel Thompson (Where Do We Go From Here), featured in the judges' top 10 choices, announced a week prior to the top five.

It's been a huge year for Felicity, as she has been the face of a nationally screened Tourism NSW TV campaign, and she was a popular guest on the Seven Network's Sydney Weekender, with Mike Whitney.

A film clip for Dear Someone, shot at Avoca Beach, has been screened on CMC, Rage and other outlets.

At the 2004 Telstra Country Wide Southern Stars Eighth Australian Independent Country Music Awards, Felicity was named Female Vocalist of the Year for Turn Out The Light - can she do it again in Tamworth?

In other exciting news - Felicity features in the Tamworth Independent Artists' Recognition Awards (TIARAs) in Female Vocal and Vocal Collaboration, and in the ACMLA 2005 People's Choice Awards for Best Album and Best Female Artist.

During the 2005 Tamworth Festival, catch Felicity at her very best in two exclusive concerts. The first is at SouthGate Inn's Scully Room on Sunday, January 16 at 8pm and the second, in Dom's Room of The Family Hotel on Thursday, January 20 at 8pm.

Mildura's spotlight on Felicity
2004 Australian Independent Female Vocalist
Felicity received the award at the 2004 Southern Star Australian Independent Country Music Awards* at Mildura, announced on Saturday, October 2.

Listening to Turn Out The Light, you could easily mistake it for a love song - but the story behind the song is far from that.

Feeling lost and alone, uncertain of her future as an independent, the Golden Guitar and MO Award winner penned the song and committed it to disc, along with several other tracks on her first independent release since being signed to the label in the late 90s.

Turn Out The Light has been extremely well received at radio stations and has charted successfully right around the country.

FELICITY has well and truly come of age in the Australian entertainment
industry, having served her apprenticeship among some of the best in the
business. Now it's Felicity's turn to take the spotlight.

Having taken her first steps on stage at age 12, she's now trodden the
boards of the world's stage - and her star is still on the rise. Nashville
music critics have come to know the singer from down under during several
recent trips to America visiting "Music City" and St Louis - home of the

Within the last year, Felicity has travelled to the States a number of times
for songwriting and performance trips, with the latest focusing on her
forthcoming album and career fifth.

She's now armed with a swagful of songs, co-written with some of Nashville's
finest including Gene Pistilli, who wrote the title track from her most
recent EMI album, New Shadow, and recent Grammy award winner Jim Lauderdale,
who wrote Planet of Love.

Other collaborators include Jerry Salley, Randy Scruggs, Ray Herndon,
Jimbeau Hinson, and Jennifer Kimball who are more than impressed by Felicity
and she's now ready to begin recording the follow-up.

Accolades are nothing new, as she has been singing for more than half her
life - but for Felicity - it's fun and it shows.

Her new album is due for release late 2004, and to satisfy her legion of
fans released a Limited Edition EP titled "Turn Out The Light" earlier this
year. The title track & first single "Turn Out The Light" is climbing into
the Top 10 Country Charts with strong airplay support.

Felicity's Tour News

NASHVILLE – She earned rave reviews for her shows September 2002, now EMI/Australia recording artist Felicity returns to Music City. The award-winning young singer will be working with recent Grammy winner Jim Lauderdale, Randy Scruggs, Kevin Welch, Jimbeau Hinson, Bruce Bouton, Jennifer Kimball, Mark Moffatt and others during her two week visit.

    A mainstay on the music scene back home, Felicity was one of only two country artists to perform at the famed Sydney Opera House for a celebrity-studded audience, including the Prime Minister, on Australia Day late in January. She’s in pre-production now for her 3rd EMI release and 5th album overall in a career which began when she was 12.

    Felicity will be accompanied at her local shows by two of her countrymen: boyfriend Glen Hannah, a member of Kasey Chambers’ band, and recent Nashville émigré Jedd Hughes, 22, who tours with Patty Loveless.

    Joan Douglas, Felicity’s Tamworth-based manager, will accompany the personable young singer.

Western Beat Monthly - March 2003
Award-winning EMI-Australia artist Felicity returns after earning rave notices from her September Music City debut. “Echoes of Patsy Cline with power to spare”, quotes Music Row’s Robert K. Oermann, while the Tennessean’s Craig Havighurst said her latest CD, New Shadow, “matches her sexy, winsome voice to a bag of really well chosen country songs.” She’s backed tonight by Glen Hannah, Kasey Chamber’s mandolin/guitarist and Jedd Hughes, from Patty Loveless’ band.

This trip also finds Felicity co-writing with Jim Lauderdale, Kevin Welch, Jimbeau Hinson, Gene Pistilli, Bruce Bouton and others. “Her vocals are luxuriously smooth and haunting”. – Nashville Rage

The City Paper, Nashville’s Newspaper – 14 March 2003
Down under comes down south
Australian star Felicity continues visit
She’s been singing country music for almost 15 years, and has made two previous visits to Nashville. But Australian vocalist Felicity has found things a bit different during her latest Music City tour, which concludes Saturday at 3rd and Lindsley, where she opens for Jonell Mosser.
    “I’ve never been here in the wintertime,” Felicity laughed. “It’s a lot colder than I imagined”.
 Weather misgivings aside, Felicity’s been making a strong impression in the country world, thanks to her latest release New Shadow (EMI Australia). The disc includes several tunes written or co-written by such area staples as recent Grammy winner Jim Lauderdale, Al Anderson, Jamie O’Hara and Dean Miller, and it showcases her intense, declarative vocals and frequently animated delivery.

    Felicity’s style reflects the highly personalised approach of her twin favourites and prime influences Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline. “If you could somehow mix those two together and add a guitar, that would be my ideal sound,” she added. The disc also reflects the influence of western swing, honky-tonk and even some pre-rock pop with a cover of a Johnny Mercer number.

    Currently in pre-production for her third EMI release and fifth over-all, Felicity actually began singing country at the tender age of 12. She quickly emerged as a formidable performer by issuing an album at 16 and becoming a finalist in the new talent competition for Australia’s equivalent of the CMA Awards a year later. She backed Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in 1994, and won multiple awards for her country expertise at home.

    “There’s always been a very active country music audience in Australia,” Felicity said when asked about differences between American and Australian fans. “I guess the major difference here is that they tend to be a little more excited, a little more willing to respond to your performance.”

    Felicity has been honing her writing skills during this current Nashville stint, collaborating with Lauderdale, Randy Scruggs, Kevin Welch, Jimbeau Hinson, Bruce Bouton among others.

A fabulous female triple-play visits 3rd & Lindsley tonight, and those with musically eclectic tastes might love all three.
    Sandra McCracken is a beguiling singer-songwriter in the Sarah McLaughlin vein who recently landed a record deal with classy Dualtone here in town. Australian country singer Felicity stirred up interest when she last visited Nashville with her swinging style and Down Under hillbilly voice. Capping off the night is Nashville favourite Jonell Mosser, who can sizzle on everything from singer-songwriter material to the brashest R&B.
The Northern Daily Leader (Weekend Magazine) – 22 March 2003 
Felicity Impresses
Former Tamworth songbird Felicity flew the coop to Nashville two weeks ago to write songs for her new album and has just landed back on Australian soil.
    While the sophisticated singer from down under was in the American country music capital, her manager Joan Douglas virtually had to “pull on the reins” to hold Felicity back.
    “The gig at the Exit Inn on March 11 was fantastic,” Joan said.
    “The sound was bad on stage, but we would not have known out front. Glen Hannah’s hot picking, with Jedd Hughes on mandolin was just amazing.
    “These Americans were stunned by their talent. Fliss’ voice and rhythm guitar was just the icing on the cake. She is impressing all who see her and that’s not just a biased manager talking, now.”
    Joan said Felicity had been busy songwriting with some of the best in the business – Randy Scruggs, Jennifer Kimball, Jim Lauderdale, Bruce Bouton (who produced Graeme Connors’ new album, This Is Life), Claudia Scott partner of Kevin Welch and Jerry Salley, who has written many hits for Alan Jackson, as well as Adam Harvey’s House That Jack Built.
    “She’s working flat out – doing two sessions a day. The poor little thing is exhausted as she is going day and night, but the songs are great and it has been well worth the trip,” Joan said.
    Before leaving Nashville, Felicity and Glen Hannah did a gig at the Sherlock Holmes pub, which turned out to be a real Aussie night out on the town.
    Among the audience (and up on stage for a few numbers), were Kylie Sackley, Pru Clearwater and Kiwi performer, Kylie Harris, who are all working hard on their respective careers in the States.
