Jen Cloher Visits Western Australia Next Week Then Heads Around the Country

Written by Toby Smith on August 27, 2009

Following a sell-out album launch in Melbourne, feature albums on Triple R and Radio Adelaide, and some of the most remarkable album reviews for an Australian songwriter in recent memory, Jen Cloher is pleased to launch her acclaimed second album Hidden Hands in Western Australia next week.

Jen Cloher and The Endless Sea will play their first ever Western Australian headline shows on Friday 4 September at the Prince of Wales in Bunbury, and Saturday 5 September at Mojo’s in Fremantle.

Embarking on their most extensive tour to date, Jen Cloher and the Endless Sea will go on to perform in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Katoomba, Milton, Launceston, Hobart, Brisbane and Toowoomba throughout September and October.

Recorded live over seven days at Woodstock Studios in Melbourne, Hidden Hands is the follow up to Jen Cloher and the Endless Sea’s critically acclaimed ARIA nominated debut album Dead Wood Falls (2006). Following the release, Cloher and her band The Endless Sea spent two years on the road supporting the likes of Jose Gonzales, Laura Veirs, Missy Higgins, Ben Lee, Josh Pyke and Mia Dyson as well as completing several national headline tours of their own. They were invited to join some impressive festival line-ups including Homebake, The Falls and Queenscliff and were selected alongside Lior and Blue King Brown in welcoming His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Australia as part of the One Earth concert.

Jen retreated to the picturesque surrounds of New Zealand shortly after, to write material for Hidden Hands. The result is an incredibly personal and intimate record, which explores a more expansive musical palette and better represents the country-rock grit and grace of The Endless Sea’s live performances.

Consisting of Jen Cloher (vocals, guitar), Geoff Dunbar (bass), Jen Sholakis (drums), Biddy Connor (viola, musical saw), and Michael Hubbard (guitar), Jen Cloher and The Endless Sea are excited to make a return to the live circuit in 2009.
