Jen Cloher’s 2013 album In Blood Memory marked the beginning of a new era for an artist who’d spent almost a decade as one of the country’s best folk-leaning singer-songwriters. Backed by a formidable trio (Courtney Barnett, Bones Sloane and Jen Sholakis), In Blood Memory is in turn grittier, groovier, more beautiful and more devastatingly honest than any work she’s produced before.
It was shortlisted for that years Australian Music Prize (Australia’s most prestigious music award) - and rightfully so. When not running her label Milk! Records (Courtney Barnett, Loose Tooth, Fraser A. Gorman and more) Cloher has been working on her fourth record - due to be released later in 2017.
