Stella Donnelly wins WAM's Song Of The Year for Boys Will Be Boys

Stella Season continues on a wonderful night for WA music.

Last night the 2017-18 WAM Song Of The Year Awards went down in the historic surrounds of the new Fly By Night club in Fremantle, and quite fittingly it was Stella Donnelly who took out this year's top gong for her breakout single, Boys Will Be Boys. It caps off a massive year for the Freo-based singer/songwriter, including winning BIGSOUND's Levi's Music Prize, triple j Unearthed Artist Of The Year, 5 WAM Award wins... The list goes on. One gets the feeling her incoming set at Splendour In The Grass this July is going to be one that truly shoots her into the stratosphere, but not before she hits up SOTA Festival this coming June 4.
