Jen Cloher (Ngāpuhi & Ngāti Kahu) is a songwriter and performer living on unceded
Wurundjeri land in Naarm (Melbourne) Australia. Cloher’s taut, terse brand of rock is
charged with the static tension that comes with being an eternal misfit; they have
spoken truth to power with the shrewd eye that only an outsider can possess. Admirers
have naturally gravitated towards Cloher’s incisive, generous songwriting. Over the
course of five albums, they have won a J Award and an AIR Award and been nominated
for an ARIA and the Australian Music Prize. In 2012 Cloher founded Milk! Records with
Courtney Barnett releasing music from Sleater Kinney, Tiny Ruins, Hachiku and more.
On their first album in five years, Cloher finally breathes out. I Am The River, The River
Is Me, their fifth album, is verdant and rich; it luxuriates in stillness, and carries itself with
cool, unfussy confidence. It suggests that home is not found in a place or a politic, but in
the community you keep: Inspired by Cloher’s powerful matrilineal line of wāhine Māori,
I Am The River, The River Is Me is not urgent, or hurried, but it is vital. The joy of life,
Cloher seems to say, is in forgiving your moments of weakness with grace, and
embracing the parts of you that are unfinished.

Praise for Jen Cloher (self-titled) 2017
A modern day Patti Smith whose brutally honest, politically charged lyrics mark
her out as one of the most interesting and important artists of her day.” - The
Independent UK


Show starts at 7:30pm.
