Courtney has broken through pretty much everywhere these days. She has played major festivals all over the world in the last 5 or so years, with her amusing and honest take on the minutiae of life and relationships.

She is an ardent feminist, bringing her church of listeners on board with her disarming and honest delivery. Take a listen to “Boys will be Boys” below for an example of what Stella delivers.
