Felicity has a heart as pure as the wind.

Frozen Rabbit is as good as it gets. It also ticks off several key Urquhart basics: it’s well written, well produced, well sung, well intentioned.

Felicity Urquhart has long been one of the best-loved and most decorated singer-songwriters in Australian song. In a career encompassing seven studio albums, two EPs, and countless sold-out headlining shows and capacity festival appearances.
2020 will see Felicity going from strength to strength off the back of her success at the recent 48th Country Music Awards of Australia – The Toyota Golden Guitar Awards.
Felicity was the night’s big winner taking out five awards from her eight nominations for Frozen Rabbit including APPLE MUSIC SINGLE OF THE YEAR (Chain Of Joy), APRA AMCOS SONG OF THE YEAR (Chain Of Joy), FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR, TRADITIONAL COUNTRY ALBUM OF THE YEAR (Frozen Rabbit), and TOYOTA ALBUM OF THE YEAR (Frozen Rabbit). She also took home a sixth award, a recognition as co-writer of ‘Sing Me A Song’ (co-written with Luke O’Shea, who recorded the track with Lyn Bowtell). The song took out the HERITAGE SONG OF THE YEAR award.
Felicity’s Golden Guitar Award tally now sits at fourteen. Her seventh solo studio album ‘Frozen Rabbit’, was also nominated for a 2019 ARIA Award in the Best Country Album category. These accolades acknowledge the strength of the album, Felicity’s first stand-alone album release in over a decade, and her first since signing a new record deal with ABC Music.
A constant presence on Australian screens and airwaves, Urquhart has hosted ABC Radio’s flagship country music variety show Saturday Night Country since 2010—as well as serving as the face of Tourism NSW’s nationally broadcast Heart of Country NSW campaign.
