Jen Cloher Has Arrived

Jen Cloher has been a staple on Melbourne's music scene for years, and she's finally enjoying international success thanks to her excellent 2017 record. Jen visited the Cafe on a mostly sold out US tour with her band, which includes her rock star wife - Courtney Barnett. Shortly after Jen and Courtney began dating, Courtney's career exploded and Jen found herself at home alone in Australia. We'll talk about how Jen moved through the inevitable jealousy while Courtney was on tour, and hear music inspired by that experience. Jen will also share why she wanted to be called John as a kid and how she felt when Australia's government decided to legalize same-sex marriage.
