Jen Cloher In Session – 2017 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Jen Cloher – Multi-talent – further evidence is still fertile ground for talent.

Jen Cloher to start the week – in session for Marc Riley at BBC 6 Music on September 26, 2017.

For those of you who may not already know, Jen Cloher is an Australian singer, songwriter, and record producer. She’s currently based in Melbourne. Cloher’s 2017 self-titled fourth studio album peaked at number 5 on the ARIA Charts (this session partly promotes that). From 2006 to 2010, Cloher recorded and toured with her band Jen Cloher and the Endless Sea and since 2013 has released with Mia Dyson and Liz Stringer music under the name Dyson Stringer Cloher. The album was preceded by the singles “Forgot Myself” and “Regional Echo” and debuted at number 5 on the ARIA charts. The album received five star reviews from The Herald Sun, The Guardian and The Independent and was voted Double J’s Album of the Year for 2017. The album was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize.

In December 2017, it was announced that Cloher would be one of the guest judges for Happy Mag’s ‘Needle in the Hay’ vinyl competition.

In 2018, Cloher toured the United States, Europe and Australia.

In 2019, Cloher reunited with Dyson and Stringer. The trio recorded a self-titled album in eight days at The Loft in Chicago in April 2019, which was released in October 2019 and toured nationally.

On this session she is backed up by Courtney Barnett on guitar. Coincidentally they were an item and had been from 2012-2018, and much of the inspiration for the self-titled 2017 album comes from their relationship.

So now you know.
