Australian Folk Music Awards Young Artist Of The Year, Felicity Dowd, Releases 'Honeycomb and Glue'


By Stevie Connor.



It's a thrilling moment for Felicity Dowd, the immensely talented country-folk artist from Wollongong, who was announced as a top 10 finalist in the prestigious Toyota Star Maker competition.


This comes in the wake of being announced Youth Artist of the Year at the Australian Folk Music Awards a little over a week ago!


The Toyota Star Maker finalists were revealed in Tamworth on Wednesday, setting the stage for the grand announcement of the winner during the Tamworth Country Music Festival on Sunday, January 21.


Toyota Star Maker, the longest-running and most prestigious country music talent search in Australia, has a distinguished history of boosting the careers of artists including the likes of Keith Urban, James Blundell and Lee Kernaghan.


Felicity’s inclusion in the top 10 finalists for the 2024 competition signifies her outstanding talent and potential to make a significant impact on the country music scene.


Her latest release, "Honeycomb and Glue," has already garnered considerable acclaim, showcasing her exceptional songwriting and performance skills. Added to this, her recent accolade as the Youth Artist of the Year at the Australian Folk Music Awards has solidified her standing as a rising star in the country-folk genre.


In response to the thrilling news, Felicity Dowd shared her excitement. "To say this is a dream come true would severely be an understatement!” she said. “I feel so incredibly lucky to have been named a finalist in the 2024 Toyota Star Maker competition."


Felicity went on to express her eagerness to embrace the opportunities that come with this incredible honour. "I cannot wait to take on all the amazing opportunities that come with this incredible announcement and couldn’t be more proud of the brilliant bunch of artists I am finalists with,” she said.


"Ever since I first went to the Tamworth Country Music Festival, sat in the grass of Toyota Park, and watched the 2018 Star Maker Competition, it has been my dream to one day step on that stage! It’s now going to happen on January 21."


With the stage set for January 21, 2024, for the announcement of the winner, all eyes will be on this remarkable artist as she aims to make her dream come true.
