Blue Skies by Felicity Dowd – Song of the Day

Blue Skies, the charitable and thought-provoking debut single by South Coast NSW singer-songwriter Felicity Dowd is our Song of the Day!

Blue Skies, the debut single from South Coast NSW-based, singer-songwriter Felicity Dowd is our Song of the Day! Not only is it thought-provoking, all proceeds from streams and downloads of the track over the next 12 months will be donated to the Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund – and that’s something we like to support here at Countrytown.

Although she penned the single in response to all the natural disasters that Australians had lived through including drought, floods, and cyclones, after seeing her hometown of Cobargo affected by the Black Summer Bushfires of 2019/2020 she decided to put her musical talents to good use.

She says, “It was written about natural disasters in general, and little did I know what devastation would occur so soon after. After seeing the fires come down the coast and the rebuilding, the song really grew in meaning for me.”

She adds, “I lived in Cobargo for five years and seeing what they went through, the town has a lot of meaning for me. I have lots of friends who live there who were impacted by the fires, it was the first place I ever busked, and Cobargo Folk Festival was the first place I ever performed.”

At the 2020 Tamworth Country Music Festival, Blue Skies won the 2020 Tamworth Songwriting Association Talent Quest (Youth Category), and Felicity used the prize money towards the recording of the single.

Blue Skies debuted at number one on the iTunes Country Songs Chart and #25 on the iTunes All Genres Songs Chart. To increase the impact of the story of Blue Skies, videographer Kyle Wilson produced the accompanying music video.

Felicity graduated from the junior course of the CMAA Academy of Country Music in July 2018, and is currently studying for her HSC while continuing to pursue her love of country and folk music.
