Brisbane Festival: Jen Cloher

BY Heapsaflash | 03-Jul-2018
Brisbane Festival, in association with The Tivoli, presents JEN CLOHER!
Get ready to rock and roll as Melbourne singer-songwriter Jen Cloher returns to Brisbane Festival with her latest, self-titled album – a letter in triplicate to themes of love, music and Australia. The critically-acclaimed album is the culmination of a period of artistic and personal growth in which Cloher took her rightful place as the punk-rock figurehead of Melbourne’s famous DIY music scene.

“Cloher has established herself as a shapeshifter within, and torch-bearer for, the conventions of rock.” PITCHFORK

"Astonishingly candid…(she) tackles politics, equality and pride with frank intimacy.” THE OBSERVER, UK

“A work of real brilliance, a brave, ambitious and moving follow-up to 2013’s outstanding In Blood Memory.” THE GUARDIAN
