Della Harris is a singer, songwriter, wife and mother, born in the heart of rural Victoria and now living in Melbourne raising her family. She’s a story teller - her authentic stories come from real life and resonate happily with her audiences.
Della loves performing and touring and has been doing so for most of her life, but it’s only been in recent years that her passion and desire to tell her own story has led her into her own original career. Her love for the story, the song and the performance coupled with an absolute burning desire to perform her own material has been the turning point in an already exciting career in music. ‘It has been quite an emotional journey finding my own voice – I feel like I have something worthwhile to share, an interesting life story to tell and my music is the vehicle for that’ says Della.
Her latest single ‘Raining On My Wedding Day’ comes after clinching her first National #1 spot for two weeeks on the Australian Country Tracks Top 40, with ‘Must Have Been The Wine’. The single continues to show Della’s diversity and unique music style along with a very personal glimpse into the life of one of Australia’s fastest rising new contemporary country artists.
“In ‘Raining On My Wedding Day’ I’m basically describing my thoughts around my first wedding - ‘my trial run’ as I call it! I knew I was making a mistake but at the time it felt easier to just go through with it than to pull out and let everyone down. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has felt trapped like this.” Della Harris
The ‘Raining On My Wedding Day’ single release follows an incredibly successful 2020 Tamworth Festival for Della Harris where she won the award for ‘Best Female Vocal’ at the People’s Choice Awards, celebrated her first National #1 single and was invited to share some of the biggest stages around Tamworth with many of Australia’s Golden Guitar winning acts – including Jetty Road, Kristy Cox, Carter & Carter, Brad Butcher and more.
Della is heading towards a new album release at the Tamworth 2021 Festival, a release that will include all her hit singles to date (My Turn Now, Long As You’re Lonely, Roll Of A Dice, Must Have Been The Wine and now Raining On My Wedding Day – all top 5 chart hits). With a style all of her own and songs that have proven popular with both country radio and fans throughout Australia, Della is making her own unique mark and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
