Collective Artists, Look Out Kid
Jen Cloher Solo Tour
Almost a year after the release of her extraordinary self-titled fourth album and it's accompanying national tour, Jen Cloher has announced that she will bring her solo oeuvre on the road, performing alone in intimate settings across the country as well as the UK and Europe. In solo-mode Cloher is a master storyteller and a performer in the tradition of indie-folk's greats. These shows will feature performances of sparse beauty, laying bare the elegance, simplicity and rawness of Cloher's song writing. They are a reminder that the multi-award-winner's recent albums have established her as one of the most important song-writing voices in the country.
Cloher has also announced that she will make available an exclusive solo EP features exquisite performances captured at Wilco's famous Loft studios in Chicago and from within the decaying glory of New Jersey's iconic Loew's Theatre. These collectors items will only be available on this tour.
