Almost a year after the release of her extraordinary self-titled fourth album, Jen Cloher today delivered multiple surprises in the form of a gorgeous acoustic EP plus a set of brilliantly shot intimate live band performance videos.
The solo EP 'Live at The Loft and Loew’s' 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 are performances of sparse beauty, laying bare the elegance, simplicity and rawness of Cloher’s songwriting. 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.
The Live at The Loft and Loew’s EP will be available digitally on all services and also as a super-limited edition vinyl pressing available only at Cloher’s upcoming shows.
Lastly, Cloher has dropped a surprise package of three videos filmed late last year at Milk! Records’ Melbourne warehouse – the intimate performances capture a rare camaraderie and bond between band members who had just finished a year of extensive global touring to sold out audiences. the videos are available here via Apple Music: itunes.apple.com/au/album/strong-woman-live-at-the-loft/1407167982?i=1407167989
