announces Australian tour!
Jen Cloher has announced that she will be commencing an Australian tour in March 2018.
The tour will celebrate the end of a landmark 12-months for Cloher, releasing her self-titled album to unprecedented acclaim and unleashing her live show to rapturous audiences all over the world.
These shows will likely be Cloher’s only run of Australian headline shows with a band in 2018 as demand will see them tour overseas throughout the year.
It’s a rare thing for an artist on her 4th album, 15 years into her career, to break new ground with such withering force but Jen Cloher’s 2017 has left critics and fans alike reaching into their grab-bags for new superlatives. This was the year where Jen Cloher confirmed once and for all she’s one of this country’s most important musicians. As if it were ever in doubt.
Cloher’s self titled album (released through her own label Milk! Records) received 5-Star Reviews from The Guardian, The Herald Sun and The Independent (UK). It was longlisted for The AMP and also listed in Rough Trade’s Top Albums of 2017. She was crowned Double J’s Australian Artist Of The Year.
