Her shows have been described by many as a “unique experience”, blending jubilant energy with heartfelt storytelling, delivered through a combination of wit, warmth, and enchanting harmonies.

Together with her band, The Prawn Stars, Fanny has garnered high praise as "one of the genre's most esteemed performers" according to The Australian. 

This recognition has been earned through years of dedicated work, touring countless country halls during their annual Country Halls Tour.

Raised on a farm and spending the majority of her time traversing regional Australia in a caravan, Fanny draws inspiration for her songs from the vivid landscapes of red dirt and snowy mountains, as well as the diverse individuals who inhabit these places.

As well as her musical pursuits, Fanny is also a farmer and a volunteer firefighter, embodying a multi-faceted persona that resonates with audiences.

Fanny's album, "fallow" released in 2020, proved to be a monumental success, earning her the ARIA Award for Country Album of the Year, as well as five CMAA Golden Guitars, including Album of the Year and Female Artist of the Year. 

The album was further recognized by being shortlisted for the highly acclaimed Australian Music Prize Top 9 Australian Albums in 2020. 

Fanny's music was acknowledged when her song "Dig" received a nomination for one of the Top 5 most radio played country songs in 2021 at the APRA awards.

Fanny’s will be playing at Savannah in the Round this year, set to kick off 6 October at Kerribee Park (Mareeba Rodeo Grounds). Tickets are on sale at
