At only 17 years of age, Felicity Dowd has the wisdom and understanding of a much more mature singer-songwriter. Instead of focussing on teenage angst and matters of the heart, she uses her voice to speak up about cultural, moral and governmental issues that affect her deeply and concern her future as a young Australian. She passionately blends her various influences of Country, Folk, Blues, Jazz and Pop into her acoustic repertoire of modern classics and original compositions.
Hailing from Bega, Felicity Dowd is the NSW Folk Federation 2020 ‘Young Folk Artist of the Year’, 2020 Tamworth Songwriters Association talent quest winner and a current student within the 2020/2021 Talent Development Project. At this year’s Tamworth Songwriters Association Salute Awards, she won both the Novice and Youth Categories for her songs ‘Blue Skies’ and ‘When the Party Is Over’. In March 2021, Felicity released her first single “Blue Skies” to raise funds for the Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund.
