Since busking in the streets of Tamworth at age 11, Felicity Urquhart has proven herself to be a true country-music lifer. She began releasing albums in the ’90s, introducing her cheery disposition and clear, uplifting voice as well as a knack for emotional storytelling. Those same qualities have driven some of her most defining songs, from the chart-topping 2007 hit “Big Black Cloud” (co-written with Randy Scruggs) to the spine-tingling Karl Brodie duet “Slow It Down”. Urquhart’s trademark confidence and charisma helped her to develop a tandem career as an in-demand media personality, presenting on TV’s Sydney Weekend and hosting ABC Radio’s Saturday Night Country. She lent haunting harmonies to Brad Butcher’s 2015 ballad “Simple Things” before breaking a decade-long spell between albums with 2019’s Frozen Rabbit, spotlighting a slower, deeper delivery informed by Americana and bluegrass.
